PowerColor Radeon HD 4830

22 July 2009
  • Excerpt: The Radeon HD 4830 at the heart of this card is a cut-down version of AMD’s second-best graphics processor, the RV770. The 4830 has 640 stream processors, compared to the 800 processors in a higher-end card such as the Radeon HD 4870. The 4830 is designed to run at slower clock speeds, too, and PowerColor sets this model to operate its core at 575MHz and its 512MB of GDDR3 memory at 900MHz.
  • Pros: HDMI port on the mounting bracket. Oversized cooler keeps the RV770 cool.
  • Cons: Doesn't meet minimum gaming performance requirements. Too noisy for home-theater setup.

PowerColor Radeon HD 4830 512 MB

  • Summary: AMD's new Radeon HD 4830 is positioned to fill one of the last gaps in the GPU market price ranges. While the HD 4670 has a tight grip on the sub-$100 market and the HD 4850 is a great choice in the sub-$200 range, AMD felt there was something missing in between $100 and $200. Considering price/performance, the HD 4830 is one of the best offers on the market today only rivaled by some low-end NVIDIA cards.
  • Pros: Excellent overclocking potential, Native HDMI output, Very good price/performance ratio
  • Cons: Noisy cooler, Retail cards might be affected by missing shaders issue, Not that much cheaper than HD 4850, Limited memory overclock
