SAPPHIRE Exclusive HD 4850 X2 Gets Better !

For the
gaming
enthusiast, SAPPHIRE has just announced that the innovative SAPPHIRE
HD 4850 X2 is now in volume production, enabling the company to reduce prices for both
the 2GB and 1GB models making this pr
oduct the best value graphics solution in the high
performance segment. Responding to initial feedback in early reviews, production units now
have an improved fan speed profile, keeping noise to a low level when in idle or 2D graphics
mode. Driver support
has further increased performance, and a fully WHQL driver is now
available for download from AMD.

Only available from SAPPHIRE, the HD 4850 X2 comprises two complete HD 4850 graphics
systems on a single PCI
-
Express card connected by an on
-
board PCI Expres
s Gen 2 bridge
chip. Each GPU has 800 stream process units and a 256
-
bit memory interface driving 1GB
or 512MB of GDDR3

memory, making a total of 2GB or 1GB of on
-
board memory.

Four

Dual Link DVI outputs are provided
on the back plate
as well as TV
-
Out.
T
his provides
a choice of Multi
-
monitor operation or CrossFire mode in which
3D applications such as
games u
se both GPU’s together

to deliver a single accelerated output
. In this mode the HD
4850 X2 delivers stunning levels of performance and high frame rat
es in games even at high
resolutions with graphics features enabled.

GDDR4 Adds
Punch to Midrange

For gamers on a budget, the new SAPPHIRE HD 4670 GDDR4 has been production
engineered to bring new levels of performance

to the mainstream previously associat
ed only
with high end cards. With its 320 stream processors and carrying 512MB of GDDR4 memory
the SAPPHIRE HD 4670 GDDR4 is now the best product in its class. Clock speeds are
750MHz for the core and 1100MHz (2.2GHz effective) for the memory making this t
he
fastest HD 4670 card available. The card is cooled by a new large diameter fan based cooler
which keeps noise levels to the minimum (<20dBA).

Outputs are HDMI, VGA and DVI
supporting a wide range of monitors and TV display options.

Silence is Golden

SAP
PHIRE is also shipping the SAPPHIRE HD 4670 ULTIMATE Edition

which
uses
heatpipe technology to bring a totally silent solution to this graphics family. As it uses no fan
it must be installed in a case with good system ventilation. With its 320 stream proce
ssors
and carrying 512MB of GDDR3 memory the SAPPHIRE HD 4670 ULTIMATE is ideal for
HTPC or general purpose computers that are required to run quietly but can also used for
gaming. Clock speeds are 750MHz for the core and 873MHz (1.746GHz effective) for th
e
memory.
Again HDMI is delivered on the rear bracket together with DVI and VGA out.

All
SAPPHIRE HD 40
00 series graphics cards are Microsoft Windows Vista™ Premium
certified and supported by the ATI Catalyst® suite of software, e
nsuring customers have
ongoing access to software updates for performance, stability and added features
. Like the
previous genera
tion, these cards support DirectX10.1 for enhanced rendering performance
and lighting effects.
