PowerColor is readying a new custom-designed Radeon HD 4890 accelerator that breaks-away from the reference design, and its lavish components. The new AX4890-1GBD5 seems to concentrate on a simpler, value-oriented design. The accelerator sticks to AMD's reference clock speeds of 850 MHz for the core, and 975 MHz for the memory. It loads 1 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 256-bit wide memory interface. Other features are fairly standard for the SKU. This product follows PowerColor's HD 4890 PCS+, PCS++ series, apart from the common reference design. It is expected to be positioned around the US $200 mark.
