At an MSRP of $400, the new HD4850 X2 sits right between the HD4870 and HD4870 X2 in price, and in performance as well.  The extra GPU really adds to the power of the HD4850 taking it past the it’s bigger brother, though still not coming close to the HD4870 X2.  It is also possesses a rather interesting back plate; most might have expected a rear venting setup like most modern cards sport, the HD4850 X2 has four dual-link DVI connectors as well as a TV out.  Check out HEXUS’ review here.

“Despite NVIDIA’s branching out, there’s no denying that the single-card performance crown is the most coveted trophy in the increasingly-competitive GPU market. With AMD having made the crown its own, it then promised a Radeon HD 4850 X2 and claimed it could push NVIDIA’s current line-topping GeForce GTX 280 down to third place.

The Radeon HD 4850 X2 – which, if you hadn’t guessed, is two Radeon HD 4850 GPUs on a single board – has arrived courtesy of Sapphire, whose board is the first – and currently only – 4850 X2 in production. So, let’s take a closer look and see if it really is the world’s second fastest mainstream single-board graphics card.”
