XFX Releases First Radeon HD-Powered 4000 Series Graphics Cards

XFX, following its recently announced collaboration with AMD, today introduced its first Radeon HD-powered 4000 series cards, the XFX Radeon HD 4870, 4850, 4830, 4650 and 4350.

All five models feature exceptional memory bandwidth, board power and compute power as well as a number of industry-firsts. For example, the XFX Radeon HD 4870 is the first graphics card with GDDR5 memory.

To introduce the new GPU line, XFX selected these five models for their highly desirable gaming features, including superior scalability, state-of-the-art DirectX 10.1 graphics capabilities, optimal power performance and HDMI support. Designed for serious HD gaming, these graphics cards offer exceptional performance at a variety of price points.

Future collaborations will include over-clocked versions of these and other popular Radeon HD-powered cards.

Thanks to XFX, these bad-ass cards have never looked so good.

Get used to it. You never know when weakening/opportunistic staunch NV tier-1 partners abandon ship to become neutral vendors.

the HD 4870 looks badass :rockout: the HD 4850/30 is just bland looking, why couldn't they have an awesome design covering the PCB instead of a black box :( haha, but either way awesome.

probably wont be because the Card apparently isnt the performance king anymore, probably gotta wait for AMDs reply to the 285/295.

the GTX 285/95 haven't been released yet, HD 4870x2 is still King. That would've been like syaing HD 4870 wasn't better than the GTX 260 anymore cause the core 216 is coming. No official proof yet, but yea it wont be once those are released.

Nope. GTX 295 is already on sale, ASUS already made its GTX 295 official, there's your new king.
