Introduction



AMD's Radeon HD 4850 and HD 4870 have been on the market for some time now and the first customized solutions from AIBs (Add-In-Board Partners) are showing up. Last week we tested the Sapphire HD 4850 Toxic, today we have the Powercolor PCS 4850.

Just like on previous products, Powercolor has chosen to use a full copper cooler made by Zerotherm. According to Powercolor the price "for the retailers should not change at all or not much, maybe $5" compared to Powercolor's HD 4850 reference design. So this means that the merchants will buy the card at the same price, but can charge you more because it is a premium product and they want to make more money.

Actually Powercolor is replacing all the reference design cards with products from their new Series: PCS (overclocked), SCS (passive, noiseless) and Play! (Displayport, HDMI).
