ASUS Radeon HD 4870 512MB GDDR5
On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at 2560x1920 pixels and then scaled down. The camera used was a Sony DCS-F707 5.1 MegaPixel.
So here you can see the packaging of the card we are putting through testing phases today, ASUS obviously. Now before you look at the next picture, take a deep breath.
So here we have the Radeon HD 4870. And exhale ... I don't know about you guys, but the sticker is a little ... girlish with the flower design.
Ah well, the card has DVI connectors which is all we care about right ? Both have dual-link support (HDCP capable). You might think "hmm, is that needed?" Yes Sir it is ! High-Def screens and high-resolution monitors are the key issues here. Dual link DVI pins effectively double the power of transmission and provide an increase of speed and signal quality; i.e. a DVI single link 60-Hz LCD can display a resolution of 1920 x 1080, while a DVI dual link can display a resolution up-to 2560x1200 and I believe this to can go even higher.
As stated, as Rhianna can sing so sexy, to the left, to the left, the DVI connectors. Both dual-link DVI of course, yet in the middle see the find a 7-pin HDTV-out mini-din, a user can plug an S-video cable directly into the connector, or use a dongle for YPrPb (component) or composite outputs, or use the 3-way RCA HDTV analog connector.
With the help of the supplied DVI to HDMI adapter you can connect the card towards a HDMI HD Ready television or monitor for good picture quality and as explained, sound over HDMI. This card will deal with that 7.1 lovin all by itself.
We test and review the PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 SCS3 today. This stock clocked Radeon HD 7850 is cooled passively, meaning it has no fans tool it down. That also means it's rather silent as it does not make any noise. But what about temperatures then you must be wondering ?
