    What does this mean for the 3870 Mac and PC Edition?

    Absolutely nothing. They'll still sell them for a while, they won't stop working. It suggests that ATI could release a 4700 for the Mac in a year or so though. This happens during every generation of video cards, the last generation get phased out in lieu of something new.

    Well I know they'll still work. :p

    But won't they go out of production real quick? If supplies are limited now, as they appear to be, how can you expect to find any after the EOL?

    Considering it's the best well-rounded graphics card for the Mac right now, it'd be sad to see it disappear real quick.

    ATI will unveil a 4850 or 4870 for the Mac Pro when the 5850 and 5870 come out on the PC. ;)
