PowerColor Radeon HD 4830 Graphics Card

ATI pricing has become very aggressive over the past few months. Today we focus our attention on what could well be a top choice for budget gamers.

PowerColor HD 4830 Graphics Card

 

Introduction

 

ATI continue to do things that frustrate me. We understand that they're not in the best position at the moment, but they continue to make amateur mistakes. I'm involved in the industry and the HD 4830 at launch made no noise whatsoever.

 

There wasn't a company out there that wanted to send out a sample as soon as possible, nor did ATI make any effort as far as advertising the product goes. The thing is, though, when I tested the HD 4830 from MSI I was surprised to see that it was a really a good card for its money.

 

Today we have PowerColors version of the card. To date we've only had one HD 4830 come through the door and that card managed to set the bar high for the model. You have to wonder, is PowerColor going to come within arm's reach of the bar, or hop straight over it?

 

There's ultimately only one way to find out, so let's have a look at what the company has done with the package before we have a closer look at the card and then its performance. From there we will wrap it all up and hopefully the PowerColor card can offer us something that we didn't get from the MSI one which managed to impress.
