Radeon 5800 might be 60% faster than Radeon 4800.
According to the first benchmark leaks, the new Radeon 5800 GPU might be 60% faster than the previous generation.

The new ATI GPU which is expected to be released on September, integrating DirectX 11 compatibility, is expected to deliver 2 TFLOPS. This power can be increased by about 80% by adding a second board.
The main advantage of the AMD chip over the GT300 from nVidia might be in a lower power consumption and a more reasonable thermal dissipation.

This information comes from 3D benchmarks, so we can't predict the final speed in GPGPU applications. However, Folding@Home GPU2 clients should perform much better on this new hardware !
