ASUS EAH4890 TOP w/ Super ML Capacitor Review

Packaging & Contents »


The ASUS EAH4890 TOP with Super ML Capacitor is one of the most debated custom designed HD 4890s available. During a radical redesign ASUS changed large portions of the card to achieve what many call "an overclocking monster".

As expected, the core and memory clocks have received a boost over AMD's reference design defaults. The reference cooler was replaced by a massive dual fan, six heatpipe solution. Instead of the warm and fuzzy ATI red, the PCB color has been changed to a very stylish black. To further emphasize the overclocking potential of the card a six pin power connector has been replaced by an eight-pin one for additional power delivery. Last but not least, several conventional capacitors were removed and a Super ML capacitor was added.
