XFX to ship dual-slot Radeon HD 4850

Posted on Friday, January 30 2009 @ 22:11:24 CET by

Hexus published a handful of pictures of an upcoming Radeon HD 4850 graphics card from XFX. There will be a stock and pre-overclocked models, and both cards will use a dual-slot cooling solution.
Both the HD 4850 512MB cards are identical in external appearance, with the cool-looking black PCB largely hidden under a double-height cooler.

The obvious downside is that, now, the card takes up two slots rather than just one present on most cards, but it's not really a big a problem as it would be on lower-end cards, which are more-suited for HTPC chassis. Anyone considering HD 4850, and above, will be using a large-ish chassis, we reckon, so space should not be an issue.

The XXX Edition will be clocked in at 650MHz core and 2,100MHz memory, so another 25MHz on the GPU and 100MHz (effective) on the GDDR3. Overclocking should be good, however.
Hexus reports a UK site is taking preorders for both cards, the standard model costs £141 while the overclocked version has a £152 pricetag. This is significantly more than the £115 a regular Radeon HD 4850 costs.
