HD 4850 accidentally uploaded to Amazon
Of course, there’s also price but the new RV770 cards and especially the Radeon HD 4850 is already set to have a good performance/price ratio. One example is Diamond Multimedia’s own HD 4850 which is now listed (but out of stock) with a price tag of just $199.99. This price will get you a PCI-Express 2.0 card with an RV770 chip clocked at 625 MHz and 512 MB of memory set to 2000 MHz and a single-slot cooling system equipped with some pretty eVIL artwork. The vampire meets Predator skull-like drawing is certainly more eye-catching than those depicting warriors or cvasi-pretty ladies but that’s just an opinion. It’s the performance we’re interesting in anyway.
