Final Thoughts

The Gainward HD 4850 Golden Sample is an excellent card and it's good to see that the company has expanded into the ATI realm of graphics cards, especially considering just how popular they are at the moment.

Really, the only let down for the product is the limited bundle. But with that said, the no frills approach does keep the price down and really the extras on offer from the Golden Sample naming scheme is the excellent out of the box performance and the upgraded cooler.

If you're looking for a fast HD 4850 that manages to offer some excellent after market cooling, you can't go wrong with the Gainward HD 4850 Golden Sample. While the package is a bit on the light side of things, the cooler of choice helps keep temperatures down while dropping the noise levels slightly and the overclock on offer right out of the box really helps make the card stand out when compared to a stock clocked model.

The Golden Sample series from Gainward have also been an excellent line; it's great to know that even though the company comes under the Palit umbrella, they are still able to produce excellent cards that offer the performance we expect out of the GS series of cards.
