GIGABYTE Radeon HD 4850 Graphics Card


The HD 4850 is the card that has put AMD/ATI back on the graphics card map over the past month. While the HD 3850 and HD 3870 were both good cards, a constant line-up of NVIDIA cards along with price drops meant that the aging technology was having trouble keeping up with cards not only in a similar price bracket, but cheaper again.

The HD 4850, though, has brought performance computing to the masses at a good price, which is what the market wants; the HD 4870, while more expensive is still at an extremely competitive price point.

The latest HD 4850 to come into the labs is from GIGABYTE and before we get stuck into the performance side of things, we will have a look at the package and what's inside as well as the card itself. So, let's not ramble on anymore and just get stuck into it.
