According to this link it looks like by the end of July.
Maybe I should have waited for that but first let's see how much the 1GB mem will make a difference for present games Crysis included.
EDIT:
PowerColor HD 4870 1GB GDDR5 is already listed at PowerColor product page. I'm sure we will soon see more from other ATI partners and some probably super-clocked versions.
