PowerColor brings GDDR4 to the HD 4850

Factory overclocked and custom cooled too

Since the entrance of Gainward (and Palit) into the realm of AMD graphics solutions, we've seen a positive increase in the creativity levels displayed by the Sunnyvale, CA based company's AIBs.

 

PowerColor brings GDDR4 to the HD 4850

 

As this report from TechConnect Magazine conveys, PowerColor has been hard at work to bring GDDR4 memory to an HD 4850 offering near you. Whilst the HD 4850 was relegated to GDDR3 memory and not, the GDDR5 brethren bestowed on the HD 4870, PowerColor has worked to partially readdress the balance.

 

Its PCS+ HD4850 512MB GDDR4 SKU, as the name suggests, is endowed with a ZEROtherm cooling solution and clocked at 675 MHz and 2200 MHz for the RV770 GPU and GDDR4 memory, respectively.
