Palit Radeon HD 4850 Sonic 512MB
30 September 2008
Summary: As we carry on benchmarking we'll take a look at Devil May Cry 4, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Track Mania Nations Forever and lastly UT3. In DMC4, HL2:EP2 and UT3 all settings were set to maximum with TMNF set to High and Very High at 1680x1050 and 1920x1200 respectively. It's very impressive to see how a sub $200 card can handle games at decent resolutions like 1680x1050 and higher.
Pros: Dual-slot cooler provides significantly lower temps and quieter cooling, 3-phase power is more stable and should provide longer life (less RMA), Pre-overclocked without voiding warranty
Cons: Dual-slot cooler doesn't exhaust hot air from the system, Sample didn't overclock well
