i gonna pick 1 between 2 of this...any comment??
No, the Gainward. Stays cool n quiet, and is oc'ed. Fantastic card.
the gainward hav oc the gc??
If I get you correctly, then yes. Its oc'ed at stock. I don't have the specs in mind, but its above an average 4850.
ok..i gonna take this graphic...many graphic that so powerful,i confuse on it...thx..i gonna take this...
I have it, also based on a recommendation of a TPU member. And I love it!
where you going to get it from any links ? to look at them
or whats the price on both would help
i know the iceq would have a better cooler
2 of this almost same price...now i live in malaysia...i can go suppermarket n get this..^^ His 4850 Ice q turbo also hav oc ?? right ??
I'd also check out the Gigabyte GV-R485OC-1GH. 1Gb of memory and oc'd to 700Mhz too.
Gainward idles @ 33° (30% fan usage), load isnt much higher, it never went above 50°
how about HIS ICEQ 4 4850???i hav see benchmark also ok...2 of this also hav oc...is gainward more fastest??
IceQ4 is a better choice for me. Does the gainward even have an exhaust cooler. My IceQ4s do 700/1200 easily.
whats the vantage score differences between these two excellent cards?
did you use rivatuner to overclock and at stock voltages??
I used CCC Overdrive to overclock the cards. Voltage is stock but I modified the BIOS to have the cards idle @ 300Mhz in 2D operation.
thats badass man
dang what program do you use to flash your bios?
for some reason RBE isnt working for me... on my visiontek ati 4850 -_- my voltages are really bad lol 1.158 i think and running on 550W
i should really use a usb drive to flash my bios but i just dont know how
I used ATIWinflash to flash the cards. I worked well but it can really screw up you hardware if you make mistakes.
The Gainward 4850 Golden Sample for sure. Higher binned gpu, better card.
I couldn't even find one for sale. Can you?
I wanted to compare the prices.
European markets only.
hmm I guess it's irrelevant then since the OPs in Malaysia.
Wouldnt a higher binned 4850 just be a 4870 with DDR3. Since they share the exact same GPU just lower clock speeds.
Which means if you can't get it, go for the HIS. Get an IceQ 4 model clocked at 685 Mhz and for all intents and purposes you have the same performance, decent cooling and low decibels as the Gainward. And probably for less money.
but at malaysia...this 2 of product almost same price...mean gonna take gainward gs or his ice q???
If both cards are almost equal, go for the cheaper one, if you do not hunt after each MHz or degree.
