Can two midranges make a high end?

Subject: Graphics Cards | March 12, 2009 - 01:18 PM |

On the one hand, for around $300 you can pick up the HD 4850 X2 1GB card.  On the other hand is the HD 4870 1GB model, which costs about $50 less now, and could soon dip under $200.  The prices on both cards are going to fall eventually, but for those who want a card now, that means very little.  Visit [H]ard|OCP for a look at how these two cards, and a GTX 260, compare in performance in the hottest current games, and then decide which one deserves to be brought home with you.

"Today, we have Sapphire's Radeon HD 4850 X2 on the test bench. With 512MB of memory

available to each GPU, will this video card's performance suffer, or can the

considerable amount of shader power make up for it? We'll find the answer to that

question and more with the help of six of today's hottest games!"
