Some fancy footwork OCC. Thanks!

A mild blunder.

Simple, you take the little brother HD4850 and put two of them together on one PCB and wala, you have the HD4850x2.


As far as I can fathom, you had intended to communicate 'voilĂ '. Forgive me if I am mistaken.

LMFAO!

Anyway, if it's around the $250 range it's a steal.

It's the decisions you make when you have no time to make them that define who you are.

this is actually a useful spec if you have a smaller case with cramped quarters ;)

what? <_<

First off it's not $250 it's $350....Did you even bother to read up on the review? Second there is no way a card like that would even be $250 when it comes out, and third the size of a video card matters especially if your someone that has a mid-tower case.

Can this card transfer sound with video to my Home Theatre receiver by HDMI?

Allmoney: Most likely.

Isn't the price $410-$450 MSRP? I've seen that on other sites, and was wondering if it was more or less than the GTX 280. Did Sapphire even provide a MSRP? Looks amazing otherwise!

I think the $350 price tag put on it sounds about right. Costing a little bit more than the 4870
