ATI to strike back with overclocked Radeon 4850

Posted on Tuesday, June 24 2008 @ 23:33:06 CEST by


TG Daily writes AMD will launch overclocked Radeon HD 4850 graphics cards in the second week of July to fend of NVIDIA's 55nm GeForce 9800 GTX+.
The first wave of Radeon 4850 boards is already on store shelves, with prices that already are below the MSRP of $199. In Europe, we have seen prices of 130 Euro – which is about $200 and quite surprising, as prices in Europe always have been higher than in the U.S. in the past.

Now we hear that ATI has removed all overclocking restrictions, giving add-in board (AIB) partners more room for new products. Our sources indicate that vendors are preparing a second wave of cards that will feature higher clocks for the GPU and the memory.

Senior ATI officials told us that “4850 Overclocked” cards are likely to come with a core that is clocked about 50 MHz higher, while the GDDR3 memory will be clocked to get at least 5-6 GB/s of bandwidth. Cooling will also change. Pre-announcements indicate that overclocked cards are on their way from companies such as HIS, Sapphire and Diamond.
