Default Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 x2 2G/1G Review

The HED 4850 is an interesting beast of a video card. In terms of performance, the card is faster than the GTX 285 and faster than a single HD 4890 yet lacking against the HD 4870 x2 as is to be expected with the lower clocks and GDDR3 memory instead of the GDDR5 memory on the HD 4870 x2. In terms of price versus performance, the HD 4850 x2 from Sapphire is clearly a better value than many single chip video cards with solid performance across all benchmarks. The caveat of any video card purchase today is the next generation of video cards will likely launch in the near future. As with any transition period, it might be better to see what the future will bring before spending $300 on a dual card today. Having said that, the Sapphire HD 4850 x2 is out today and delivers on what they promised which is a good thing. For those who want dual card action, but cannot afford the 4870X2 series is a solid Hot Product.
