I have no clue on how it performs, except for its X23xx Vantage score that's public now, but it would be interesting to see if 4830 compares to 4850 the way 9600 GT compared to 8800 GT (it did well despite its lower shader count).

Reference HD 4850 PCB should be compatible with a 4830, but I suspect AIBs are looking for cheaper alternatives. The one this card uses is the closest it gets to being the reference PCB.
