I imagine it would be in between a 4870 and a 4870x2 :)

Would it be better to get one of these or get another 4850 toxic and CF them together on my P5Q? I will be running a 24 inch at 1920 X 1200. Im thinking that the new 4850 x2 with the 2gig of memory would be better.

It would probably be better not only for the 2 GB memory, but the Intel P-45 chipset limits the graphics card slots to x8 when you add a second card. If you have a X-38 or X-48 equipped motherboard, two 4850's in crossfire is the current bang-for-the-buck performance king.

its 8x 2.0 which is 16x 1.1 so it performs just as good.

Not true. Read this review P-45 vs X-48 at Tweaktown

Here's a quote from the summary page.

The results really do speak for themselves and it’s clear that there is a performance difference between a x16 / x16 configuration which the X48 offers, and the x8/x8 one on the P45.

Same article states that the HD4850 in crossfire is the best value for performance because of cost.


HD4850 in crossfire has a good record for performing in cross fire.


I have a single Toxic HD4850 I'm going to wait and see how the new HD4850x2 performs before jumping ship.

I'm leaning toward adding another HD4850 when the prices come down.

With a single HD4850 and a Intel Q9400 CPU my machine has been able to play every game I have tried.

Benchmarks very well too.
