bit-tech News: Powercolor Radeon HD 4850 PCS+
And it's clear to see why - the significantly improved cooling and massive overclocking potential unlocked by the excellent Zerotherm GX810 is certainly worth the price premium if you're confident enough to overclock which, thanks to the improved support in Catalyst Control Center, is made almost insultingly easy.
In comparison to the stock 4850, the Powercolor Radeon HD 4850 PCS+ offers an only marginally faster, but massively cooler option that should certainly be considered by those in the market for a £100 graphics card. The ATI stock cooler should be replaced by anyone with any concern about the operating temperatures inside their PC, and the Zerotherm GX810, which itself sells for £25, is a fantastic upgrade that more than justifies the slight premium, especially as it's included in the two year warranty.
For those looking for the top performing Radeon HD 4850 out of the box, you'll have to look elsewhere, but for those after a 4850 that won't burn your fingers or break your bank balance and which still delivers outstanding overclocking performance, the Powercolor Radeon HD 4850 PCS+ is a excellent option.
