The Card


Looking at the card, there isn't really anything we haven't seen before. GIGABYTE have opted to use the standard cooler here and of course placed a sticker over the top that lets us know that it's a GIGABYTE card.

Like all the reference coolers, we can see another heatsink towards the back of the card that helps cool some of the other warmer components that are present.

Moving away from the cooler and having a quick look around the card, we see the standard single 6-Pin PCI Express connector located at the back of the card while across the top we see our two tabs for the Crossfire bridge if you're looking at getting two or more of these cards.

At the end of the card we have our two Dual-Link DVI connectors and single TV-Out port. Like all reference HD 4850s, the card only requires a single slot.




Following in its reference design, the card comes clocked at the standard 625MHz core and the 512MB of GDDR3 coming in at 1986MHz DDR.
