Default 4870 mem question

A friend of mine is going to buy a 4870, and he wants to make sure the card he gets has qimonda mem chips. I've heard there are a couple different types... qimonda, hynix, samsung... any idea which manufacturers use Qimonda?

Default Re: 4870 mem question

i would not worry too much about the mem chips too much, i would worry about the manufacture. i would go with XFX, as they are more likely to use higher quality parts ion their cards.

Newegg.com - XFX HD-487A-ZHFC Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD
