Asus EAH4850 HTDI/512M/A Radeon HD 4850 Videocard Review

Asus EAH4850 HTDI/512M/A Radeon HD 4850 Videocard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Its a good time to be on the market for a new video card. After floundering in second place behind nVidia for the past few years, ATI's Radeon 48xx-series videocards promise to boost AMDs marketshare back up to a healthy margins by delivering fast framerates for a very competitive price.

So how does $200 of video card stack up against a pair of last year's $250 or $500 flagship cards? 3DMark Vantage shows great scaling with the multi-GPU cards, but this test tends to be much more optimized for Crossfire and SLI gaming than what you'd find in real-world situations.

Crysis 1.2

Source: Electronic Arts

Crysis is a science fiction first-person shooter developed by Crytek. Crysis uses Microsoft's new API, DirectX 10 for graphics rendering, and includes the new engine—the CryEngine 2—that is the successor to Far Cry's CryEngine. CryEngine 2 is among the first engines to use the DirectX 10 framework of Windows Vista, but can also run using DirectX 9, both on Vista and Windows XP.

Crysis shows a much closer race between the cards than 3Dmark - at 1600 X 1200 resolution the Asus EAH4850 is only 20% slower than the 4870X2, a card that costs 300% more.
