Visiontek Radeon HD 4850
14 August 2008
Excerpt: Last month, we spent a ton of time talking about the efficiency and overall pixel-pushing prowess of ATI’s new GPU, so we won’t waste much ink on the subject here. Suffice it to say, the 4850 delivers enough power to drive your sweet, new 22-inch monitor at its native resolution. The card’s silicon is equivalent to that of previous-gen high-end cards. It’s equipped with 512MB of GDDR3 memory running at 993MHz.
Pros: Cheap-and-easy DirectX 10. Single-slot. Supports HDMI, HDCP, and accelerated Blu-ray playback.
Cons: Not that much faster than an 8800 GT. Conks out at high resolutions, AA/anisotropic filtering levels.
