|Street price:||$139 - 109 EUR|
Never say that the graphics industry isn't an exciting and changing one. Ever since the year 2007 AMD has been having a really rough time, they were in the lowest position they have ever been. Then they fix a processor bug, and directly after that release Radeon HD series 4000. And ever since the Radeon HD series 4000 AMD's ATI has been on a roll. It's nearly bi-weekly that they announce and introduce a new product. On the other side of the scope we have NVIDIA which has been leading in many segments for years and counter-acting every move that ATI made, yet that ball turned around, didn't it?
See, right now every move that NVIDIA makes is being counter-acted by ATI. And today they are launching a new mid-range class product. It's called the Radeon HD 4830 and again is a product that will bring a couple of surprises in the performance versus price ratio, to fight against the 'new' GeForce 9800 GT.
A sub-$150 HD 4000 series video card that will take on NVIDIA, in the shape of the Radeon HD 4830. We expect its price to settle at 119-129 USD. This card will have 640 stream processors, a 256-bit memory interface and GDDR3 memory, and slot in-between the Radeon HD 4850 and HD 4670. What is the HD 4830 targeted against? Well, considering the NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT and 9800 GT retail for around $130, it seems likely AMD would continue the pressure by also aiming for these products.
So without further ado, let's have a peek at the product, the technology and obviously it's features and performance. Today we'll also introduce three new applications to our benchmark test suite, Brother's in Arms: Hells Highway, Crysis Warhead and Far Cry 2.
We test and review the MSI Radeon HD 7790 OC edition, also known under SKU code R7790-1GD5-OC incl FCAT Frametimes. The new graphics card is intended to boost a little more performance into entry-level gaming.

AMD it doing it in style, two fully equipped Tahiti XT2 GPUs versus good yet silent cooling. In this review we'll look at the product, the architecture, the benchmarks, including frametime based FCAT measurements. Head on over towards our AMD Radeon HD 7990.
Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker review
We test and review the Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker, this is the much discussed 7870 card that in fact has a 7900 series GPU, the Tahiti LE. For a fair amount of money this series 7800 product now offers 7900 series performance. Armed with 2GB of graphics memory it hits a sweet spot gaming performance wise and to date it one of the more popular products in the mainstream segment. Let's check out the Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker.
