Now that the HD 4850 has been hanging around for a bit, we're beginning to see more and more companies jump on the aftermarket bandwagon. The latest company to do this is Palit, bringing the highly popular HD 4850 to the also highly popular Sonic line.
The HD 4850 has had so much going for it from the word go; its aggressive pricing and excellent performance gave users everything they wanted. It wasn't all rosy, though; while the use of a single slot cooler was handy, it caused the card to run extremely hot.
This isn't the first time we've mentioned this; we've always said that while the single slot cooler has run the card very hot, it's never caused any problems. But as we've also said a number of times, it doesn't mean we don't want it to run cooler. So, along with overclocking the card, Palit have also strapped a new cooler onto the card.
Let's have a quick look at what's going on in the package department before we check out the new cooler and the speeds that Palit have opted for on the HD 4850 Sonic.
