ASUS unveils Dark Knight Radeon HD 4870

Posted on Friday, October 10 2008 @ 02:31:50 CEST by

TC Mag spotted a new Dark Knight Radeon HD 4870 graphics card from ASUS. Two weeks ago ASUS introduced a GeForce 9800 GTX+ Dark Knight and we're still wondering why they chose this name as there's no direct link whatsoever with the new Batman film. I did notice though that both cards use the same cooler, so I assume Dark Knight is just the name of their new GPU cooling solution.
Pictured just below, EAH4870 DK/HTDI/512M is equipped with the dual-slot, four heatpiped Dark Knight cooler, has a 512MB of GDDR5 memory, a PCI-Express 2.0 interface CrossFireX support and dual-DVI connectivity.

Just like the first Dark Knight card, the upcoming RV770-powered card will feature stock clocks - 750 MHz for the GPU and 3600 MHz for the memory. Although it's not officially released the card has appeared in Europe at about 263 Euro. Also, it appears a 1GB version is also in the works.
