When we told you to stay tuned after the closing of our last competition, you might've thought it would take quite a while until we had something new to give you guys - think again! Teaming up with our great friends from ATi, we're bringing you serious gaming power - 2 Teraflops of it! You might've heard about that little 4850 card that was launched yesterday? Yeah, that one, with incredible performance and a lovable price . . . well, two of them are up for grabs, for twice the fun.

does 20W matter when 2x4850 cost €300 and 1xGTS 280 €500? In order to win back that €200 extra you spend on the GTX 280 you have to run your system at full load for quite some time
I don't care much about total power consumption; in order of importance:
1) Price
2) Performance
3) Noise
4) Power Usage

the GTX 280 fails at step 1) and doesn't have enough for 2) to make it worth it. Going further down the list is no longer necessary.
Building CF/SLI out of the box was never a preferred solution, and there are still plenty of games which don't scale, at all. But for the first time in years a CF product solution is actually interesting; this has not happened a lot in the past, if at all

HD4850 CF is ok for price €300, very ok for performance 2) maybe not the best for noise. having passed 1 & 2 there is no other solution which offers this performance at that price, so power consumption wise it has no contenders.

:-)

to complete your statement: It only makes sense to compare power consumption if the cards perform similarly cost approximately the same and are not overly noisy
Yups, single 4850 is a lot better, single slot, quiet, low power consumption per card ... the only that would prevent me from buying it is the lack of CUDA support (I'd realy like to play with it one day ... if I have the money to buy a new pc )

CUDA could be supported in the future (if AMD wants to)... Think it will depend on what physics group wins...

ATI also has the same as CUDA too... (released and announced before CUDA in fact). They can both do the same, to bad you don't have one 'language' for both... We would only benefit from it

http://www.techspot.com/review/103-asus-radeon-4850/

In an effort to remain competitive in the $200-$300 price bracket, ATI is launching yet another product from a brand new series which has been given the codename R700. The R700 will be better known as the Radeon HD 4000, and the first product from this new series that we will be looking at is called the Radeon HD 4850.

Already the Radeon HD 4850 is shaping up to be a rather interesting product as its suggested retail price has been set at just $200, right between the GeForce 8800 GT and 8800 GTS 512. With that in mind we would normally expect this new card's performance to at least exceed that of the 8800 GT, however, looking at its specifications the Radeon HD 4850 appears as it will be capable of much more than just defeating the competition's budget king.
