Review of Sapphire Radeon HD 4890 Graphics Card


At the time being, every one of the bright lights available for illustrations cards are pointed towards AMD ATI who is currently dispatching another age of cards supporting the new DirectX 11 norm. One of these cards is the AMD ATI Radeon HD 5870 which we have heaps of surveys. Nonetheless, when another age of cards is presented, one can frequently make a deal on a top of the line illustrations card from the past age. Along these lines I chose to investigate the Radeon HD 4890 which has radically dropped in cost since the 5890 was presented.

For quite a while the HD 40xx series xnxubd 2020 nvidia video 2017 from AMD was finished out with the HD 4870 model, however as nVidia pushed on, AMD chose to put out a helped form of that card and call it 4890. Other than the expansion of the card’s memory recurrence, the HD 4890 likewise has some additional memory, 1GB GDDR5 rather than the 512MB with 4870 (standard model). Alright, before we investigate the determinations you should realize that Sapphire has delivered various renditions of the HD 4890. The one which I will audit here is the “Sapphire Radeon HD 4890 1GB GDDR5 PCIe 21150-00-40R “:

Initial feelings

The card arrives in a somewhat huge cardboard box with a great deal of alluring illustrations on it, as is standard with all

retail illustrations card boxes. Inside the case I discovered the card in an antistatic plastic sack which was set between some dark froth plastic ensuring the card. The frill were put in a case beneath the designs card containing; a printed documentation; CDs with drivers; 3D Mark Vantage; PowerDVD; DVD Suite and so on; some video connectors and connectors for molex to PCI-E 6 pin and ultimately a CrossFireX span.


The card is truly pretty much equivalent to AMD ATI’s reference card, it has the equivalent heatsink/cooling arrangement and the frequencies of the memory and GPU are the ones suggested by AMD. Sapphire likewise has tweaked models with a more noteworthy measure of memory, specific cooling arrangements and overclocked memory and GPUs. The card is thick, it possesses 2 openings, fundamentally in light of the extraordinary size of the heatsink/fan which is made of copper and consolidates a few hotness lines to get a superior cooling execution. The fan has a width of 70 mm, which is normal with AMD cards.
