Default Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB

Hardcore gamers may find little added value in the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB right now. If its price were closer to $200 USD, to follow current price drops, it would be a far more attractive product, but at almost $260 it is simply overpriced. It is faster in some games, slower in some games, and merely equal to its competition in other games still. And yet it has a steep and--in our eyes--undeserved price premium. Ultimately the limited 512MB framebuffer per GPU may be a deterrent in today’s games, but then there may be an answer to that in the more expensive 4850 X2 2GB we have yet to look at.

Default

they sing a whole other tune than Anandtech who tested the 2Gb version

The Sapphire 4850 X2 costs less than a single NVIDIA GTX 280 or 285, and performs better than these as well. While the Radeon HD 4870 X2 is viable as high end single card multiGPU option, it competes at a price point beyond NVIDIA's high end. the 4850 X2 really puts pressure on anything that costs between $300 and $400 from the competition. It's very surprising to us that AMD hasn't pushed this configuration and that Sapphire are the only manufacturer to have put one of these out there.
