First run of XFX ATI graphics cards pictured

Typically straying away from reference

With XFX having chosen to start producing ATI based graphics cards whilst continuing to shift NVIDIA models, the first pictures of their initial lineup have been posted up over at donanimhaber.com a short while ago.

Two cards can be seen which are based on the Radeon HD 4850 and HD 4870, but it's good to see neither stick to the boring reference design and XFX has decided to mix them up a bit with black coloured PCBs, an extra 512MB memory on the 4870 (making it 1GB) and an entirely new stealthy looking cooler for the 4850 which makes it look more like an NVIDIA card rather than an ATI one.

Both models use reference clock speeds and are said to become available within the next week or two.
