Palit Radeon HD 4870 Sonic 1GB Graphics Card

1GB HD 4870 cards seem to be rarer than hens teeth, but today we're lucky enough to have Palit's Sonic version in hand.

Palit Radeon HD 4870 Sonic 1GB Graphics Card

 

Introduction

 

When the HD 4870 launched a few months back, it did come as a bit of a surprise that we couldn't see any 1GB models on offer. Really, in this day and age it does seem weird to have such a high-end card carry only 512MB of memory.

 

Jump forward a few months and we finally see 1GB models coming from companies. The first one we're going to be looking at comes from Palit and carries with it a bit more than the reference cooler and clocks.

 

Coming under the Sonic naming scheme, we see Palit has gone for an aftermarket cooling solution and of course an overclock on the core and memory. Fortunately, they've taken the whole card a step further from there. How exactly? Well, only time will tell. Before we check out the PCB, though, let's have a quick look at the package and bundle.
