What Do I Do From Here?
The RV770/4800 Series Chip
If you’re a believer in one card wonders, the ATI Radeon HD 4850 is the one to get with 110W power requirement and a nice $199.99 MSRP.
ATI PowerPlay technology fuses great performance through heavy use of an advanced power management technology for optimal performance and power savings
with performance-on-Demand that constantly monitors GPU activity, dynamically adjusting clocks and voltage based on user scenario. The ATI Avivo HD playback works beautifully when tested with our Blu-rays, and there’s absolutely no frame play lag on HDCP content when playing a KungFu Panda demo HDCP trailer we received. Everything is on the fly and makes efficient use of all the 800 stream processors in this card to give it the better value for the price. With great features that define graphics and improved technology, gamers are going to rip the box right off this thing unless they’re getting the HD 4870. In that case, the box will be obliterated.
