GIGABYTE Radeon HD 4850 Graphics Card - Final Thoughts

Already impressed with what the HD 4850 has to offer, we look at GIGABYTE's version today.

Final Thoughts

 

The GIGABYTE HD 4850, like every other reference design HD 4850 carries with it good performance and an excellent price to performance ratio. We can see against the mid-range 9600 GT at the lower resolution there isn't much difference. As we increase the load on the card by upping the resolution or turning on AA and AF, the HD 4850 really begins to shine against the competition.

 

Inside the package we have everything we need, from a Crossfire bridge to a DVI to HDMI adapter. It would have been nice to have seen a full version game included in the package, but it doesn't seem to be something that many ATI partners are doing at the moment.

 

If you're looking for a good valued HD 4850 that goes fast and doesn't cost much money, the GIGABYTE HD 4850 is a good choice. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but this helps keep price down and means that you can enjoy high frame rates at a decent resolution for a good price.
