Mushkin's First ATI Radeon Graphics Card Pictured

Last month, Muskin announced a comeback lineup of graphics cards under the UltimateFX series. The lineup began with a number of high-end graphics cards based on the single-GPU GeForce GTX 200 series, and later topped up with the dual-GPU GeForce GTX 295 model. By then the company had made it clear that it will be selling graphics cards based on ATI Radeon GPUs very soon. One of its first works surfaced in the form of the UltimateFX Radeon HD 4850.

The card uses a fairly standard design with a red PCB with reference cooler markings, with the GPU cooled by 92 mm fan-heatsink made by Arctic Cooling, memory cooled passively under its air-flow, and a heatsink over the VRM area. The card provides output using DVI, D-Sub, and 7.1 channel audio-routed HDMI connectors. It will be available in two variants, one that uses the AMD reference clock speeds of 625/993 MHz (core/memory), and an OC variant with 700/1100 MHz (core/memory). Both feature 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. The cards are sold in the company's seemingly popular WoodBox packaging. Its availability is not known, though we expect a fairly competitive pricing structure for these cards, given the uphill task Mushkin has competing with established players.

Looks exactly like my old ASUS 4830. Good to see another player in the market tho, I guess. But their ram prices are usually a lot higher than other brands, I hope that trend doesn't carry over to their graphics cards.

I say mushkin makes pretty good products, never had any of their ram go bad on me, also they are making a smart move by providing both AMD and NV video cards, since Gainward were pansies anyway.
