Just over a week ago ATI launched the Radeon HD 4830 which is the latest card in the 4800 series range and hits the market at around £99/$130. Unfortunately, due to a BIOS issue on the first batch of review sample cards (reference models and some retail branded) the full number of unified shaders was not available and performance was therefore negatively impacted (some reviews you have already read on other publications are actually wrong).
Today we present our review featuring cards from Sapphire, PowerColor and HIS. All have the correct BIOS version and we will be running them through a selection of the latest games at resolutions up to 2560×1600. Additionally we will cover high definition media playback, CrossFire, overclocking and testing the thermal performance because each product today features its own cooling solution.
