While ATI has used GDDR4, the marginal speed increase over high-clocking binned GDDR3 is offset by the higher latencies. GDDR4 usually clocks in the 1000-1200 MHz range on reference designs... That is not uncommon for high-clocked GDDR3, which still retains better latencies (albeit at higher power consumption).

GDDR5 is in effect almost QDDR (900 MHz GDDR5 = 3600 MHz GDDR3 effective speed) while providing a nice reduction in power requirements. Case in point:

HD 3870 @ 1125 MHz GDDR4 = 72 GB/s
HD 4850 @ 1000 MHz GDDR3 = 64 GB/s
HD 4870 @ 900 MHz GDDR5 = 115 GB/s

actually, qdr would be 900mhz=1800mhz, as DDR is doubled already
