  • Summary: I think I have it for 4 years now and it handles all of the games without issues. Great performance, but hot temperatures and very loud.

All in all, it's a great value for the money!

  • Summary: For an older generation Radeon Graphics card, it still packs a big punch but at the price of power consumption (190w) and heat. The reference design of this card gets very, very hot, up to 80+ Celcius. The fan for the reference card is also very loud; anything above 50% sounds like a mini jet taking off in your case. All in all, for the price I'm very happy with this card as it still performs very well.

Decent performance, runs warmer than I care for.

  • Summary: The card has really decent performance, considering that I am using it in a PCI-E 1X slot. I have had no performance issues running Microsoft Flight Simulator X and also X-Plane 9, both at full screen and display settings to high. The only negative comment I would make is that many ATI cards seem to run warm. This card idles at 67C. Perhaps this is what ATI considers acceptable. To me, it is too hot for a card at idle. The card has never over-heated during game play.

Still a great card!!!

  • Excerpt: The 4890 is a great graphics card, featuring 1gb 256-bit GDDR5 memory, 850 mhz core clock, 125gb/second memory bandwidth and you're all thinking cut to the chase does it play games well!? The answer to that question is: Yes. It plays games very well, games such as Counter Strike: Source, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Battlefield: Bad Company 2. I personally play games at 1920x1080, which is a high resolution, and this card's 1gb memory handles that well.
  • Pros: Reliability

  • Excerpt: I presently have 2 of these GPU's running in my rig. In my opinion ATI presently have the upper hand on NVIDIA with regard to 'bang for buck' at the moment. Very generally, 2 of these cards will outperform a GTX295 in most games, not all but most. A single 4890 will perform similar to a GTX275 and in some applications it can be compared to a GTX285. I have had no serious issues with these cards. They run hot, but that is how they are designed.

  • Summary: Also kann immer noch alle Aktuellen Games (z.B. Skyrim, COD, Crysis) auf höchster Grafik Zocken und das mit der Grafikkarte, 4GBRAM und 2x 2,4GHz Dualcore Prozessor. (4-5Jahre alter Bastler PC) Hatte sie hier damals gebraucht gekauft für ca 200€ vor 3 Jahren, Bin so eig zufrieden, aber Sie ist schon etwas Lauter als ein Normaler Standart Prozessor-Lüfter und wird auch sehr schnell sehr heiß, (Hält sich aber Tapfer durch) Beim Hochfahren des PCs macht sie auch noch...

  • Excerpt: „Was? Diese Grafikkarte ist doch schon mehr als zwei Jahre alt“, mag sich so manch ein Betrachter dieses Tests denken. Richtig, ist sie auch. Aber ich benutze die Grafikkarte bis heute und muss sagen, dass sich alle gängigen Games auf höchstem Niveau darstellen kann – na gut, auf die Direct-X 11 Effekte muss man verzichten aber mir persönlich reicht eigentlich noch das herkömmliche Direct-X 9.
  • Pros: Auch heutzutage verdammt schnell, massig Lieferumfang
  • Cons: Laut, teilweise etwas zu warm
