PowerColor HD 4850 PCS 2GB PCI-E
If we were asked to sum up the PowerColor HD 4850 PCS 2GB in a single word, our first choice would most definitely be "disappointing". PowerColor have taken a perfectly well balanced HD4850 and upset the scales by loading it with a totally unnecessary 2GB frame buffer. Not only this, but as a side-affect of this four fold increase in memory, the clock speed of the memory has had to be slashed by 200mhz in order to maintain stability in mass production.

As the results over the previous pages show, this doesn't bode well for the card as its performance is consistently lower than our reference HD 4850 across all benchmarks at both low and high resolutions.
