AMD Radeon HD 4870 and HD 4850 - Mid-range GPU mix up
Posted by newsbot on June 25th 2008

The darling of all of this might be the $199 HD 4850 card - eventhough it is using GDDR3 memory it has a very strong showing in our testsand is itself able to compete with the HD 3870 X2 card. If it weren't forNVIDIA's recent price drop on the 9800 GTX and 9800 GTX+ cards to $199-229the HD 4850 would have been the run-away victor; NVIDIA obviously caughtwind of the performance of RV770 and made adjustments in pricing to makethemselves competitive again though. In truth the performance of bothoptions is pretty much neck and neck - with a slight edge going to AMD's newRV770-based HD 4850 card.
