ASUS preps High-End Non-Reference HD 4890 Accelerator

Our colleagues over at Techpowerup have some photos of a custom design Radeon HD 4890 graphics card from ASUS.

As it looks, this model will have an enhanced 100% digital PWM design, 6+2 phase power controlled by VRM controller chips that can be controlled by software, one 8-pin PCIe power connector instead of two, a Fujitsu high-density ML capacitor for better voltage regulation and a high-performance cooler.

The clockspeeds of this Radeon HD 4890 are expected to be well over 900MHz for the GPU, with GDDR5 memory at 4000MHz. Pricing and availability is unknown, but the reference design should be launched in the second week of April for just shy of $250.
