Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 2G GDDR3

When AMD launched the Radeon HD 4870 X2 a few months back, the company hinted at the impending release of another, more affordable, dual-GPU powered card aptly named the Radeon HD 4850 X2. Like the more powerful 4870 X2, the 4850 X2 would sport a pair of RV770 GPUs on a single PCB, but on the 4850 X2 they would be clocked somewhat lower and would be linked to more affordable GDDR3 memory.

At the time, AMD planned to release the card at a slightly lower price point than the competing GeForce GTX 280, but it took quite a while for the Radeon HD 4850 X2 to finally materialize. When it did arrive, in the form of the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 2G GDDR3 we'll be showing you here, the 3D graphics landscape had changed somewhat. Click the link below and check it out...

Great card in my experience so far.  It runs a bit loud but the later official drivers have helped solve that issue with adjustable fan speeds. 

At the current price of 250-280 it is one of the best values and runs neck in neck with the GTX 285 at 50-100 cheaper.
