Dont be so sure of that, I have my HD 4870 running at 860mhz and mem at 4400mhz right now at stock VC. I still do not know how high it will go yet and games are just flying!
Also When ATI tool catches up it will be possible to increase the VC through software, something nvidia has never done.
Another thing worth noting is the fact that the HD 4870 does not have proper drivers yet as its using drivers that were not even intended for the card, just wait until actual 4870 drivers come out, I expect a nice performance jump.
