HIS submitted their Radeon HD 4850 with some customizations. The UV reflective dual-slot ICEQ4 cooler is obviously present, and next to that this is the TurboX version, which boils down to the fact that the card is overclocked for you. Normally the Radeon HD 4850 would have a 625 MHz core and shader frequency, this model is clocked at 675 at standard for you. next to that you'll also gain some extra memory bandwidth as the GDDR3 clock is set at 2200 MHz, which is 200 MHz higher than the reference clock. Not at all dramatic higher clocks bit every tiny little bit surely helps.
When we look at the PCB of the card, we immediately spot that the layout is different, this is a customized blue colored PCB, hopefully that will yield some good overclocking results as well.
You can expect roughly a 110-120 Watt peak watt power consumption. At a 199 USD introduction price, we expect this to be a very competitive product on the market. Last thing I need to mention, included in the box are:
Bundled we see the following:
DVI to VGA Dongle x 1
DVI to HDMI Dongle x 1
S-Video to Composite adapter
Crossfire bridge x 1
Multi-purpose magnetic screwdriver with LED.
Multi-purpose magnetic screwdriver with LED included in the bundle
The bundle is okay. No additional software in the form of full games though. You do get a small gadget, see the photo above; the new included multi-purpose screwdriver is funny and handy.
