Sapphire Radeon 4890 Vapor-X GFX Card

On First Page2. Sapphire 4890 Vapor-X


Introduction

Sapphire are one of the most well known board partners of ATI and over the years have constantly produced some of the highest quality graphics cards the market has to offer. Already this year Sapphire have earned our highest award with a number of products, the most notable being the HD 4870 equipped with a whopping 2GB of GDDR5 RAM.

Today we’re going to be testing the Sapphire HD 4890 Vapor-X. This specific model of the 4890 slots in just above the basic card and below the Toxic edition which is clocked at slightly higher speeds. There is also an Atomic version of the card with a 1GHz core which we will be looking at shortly. Don’t be mistaken though, the Vapor-X model still has fantastic potential and is supplied with a custom cooling solution, increased clock speeds and an impressive output configuration all tied together with an attractive price tag.

We’ll be comparing the 4890 against Nvidia’s GTX275. While in general it is a slightly pricier card than the 4890 it should prove to be a good comparison.
