Default Radeon HD 4850 X2 Spy Pics?

Radeon HD 4850 X2 Spy Pics?

Is there a Radeon HD 4850 X2 still in the works? After the initial launch of the Radeon HD 4870 X2 you never heard a thing about the rumored 4850 X2 so it seems a bit odd that the card would be coming out now but, if it is priced right, it could be a popular option.




The card will have 2GB GDDR3 memory, core/memory clock will be 625MHz /993MHz. Our sources hints that the card’s final name will be “HD4850 X2 2GBGDDR3 PCI-E QUAD DVI-I / TVO”, that means the card will come with 4 DVI and one TV out.

What do you think will be the retail price of one of these? Maybe around 350 range, give or take?

Probably set to go against the GTX 280 right?

That would make sense. Then they have the 4830 to match the 9800GT, the 4670 to match the 9500GT, the 4870 for the GTX 260, the HD 4850 for the 9800GTX+. And then there's the lower cards like the 4650, 4550 that match up to the low profile cards, mainly for HTPC set ups.

That didn't even cross my mind. For some reason I always though that 4850 CF was on par with a single 4870. So the price wouldn't be above the 300~350$ price range.

Nah, if this card comes out it could potentially do better than the 280 on alot of games. A 4850 is only ~10-15% slower than a 4870. So xfire on a single card could be maybe 40 better than a a sinlge 4870.

Official Radeon HD 4850 X2 Pics

Thanks to [H] reader Edward Cabarles, we have two official pictures of the Radeon HD 4850 X2. The crew at GPUReview also has pictures of the card and some box shots as well. So all of you that were jumping for joy yesterday when you saw the spy pics we posted can now rest assured this card is real. Still no pricing info yet though.
