    PowerColor will be making its addition to the range of graphics cards based on AMD's newest GPU, the Radeon HD 4830. The PowerColor card features a custom-design for cooler and the PCB. The GPU is cooled by a circular cooler with radial fins. The memory is provided with a heatspreader.

    The card is likely to use reference speeds by ATI, of 575 MHz core, and 1800 MHz memory. It provides a HDMI port on the card, apart from D-Sub and DVI connectors. It is also likely that this card will be released on October 23, the day AMD unveils the Radeon HD 4830 GPU.

    This isn't a low-profile card, how is it good for low-profile PCs?

    For reference, the 4850 scores around X2800 stock, meaning you're looking at a 15-20% performance gap between the two, depending upon how exactly you look at it.

    So it should fall comfortably in the 8800/9800 GT range.

    so 4 of them would kick SLI 8800GT easy.. if they are around $100 it would be perfect card to compete with the 8800/9800GT because they both would be in the same price range

    1 should be very competitive, if not anything else, with 1 8800/9800 GT. If I had the money for four 4830's, I'd rather buy two GTX 260's, but that's a different story altogether.

    gotta love how there is a video card product line for every $10 step you make. Really, what is the point of shooting below a 9800GTX or 4850 if you are a gamer? They are so cheap themselves. Lower cards are rather pointless cuz the price difference is really negligible. And if you're looking for a HTPC card, an IGP or $20 3450 can do the trick fine.

    4850's aint exactly the cheapest thing in the world and for some people £20-30 quid can make a rather large difference as most people are on a rather tight budget and gaming is your average person's hobbie
