Gainward does HD 4850 Golden Sample

Written by Slobodan Simic

700MHz GPU


The latest addition to ATI's merry family of AIB partners, Gainward, has announced yet another card in its HD 4800 series of graphics cards, the HD 4850 Golden Sample. For those that aren't familiar with the Gainward Golden Sample series, these are the cards that come with non-reference cooling and are usually factory overclocked.

The new HD 4850 Golden Sample works at 700MHz for the GPU and comes with 512MB of GDDR3 memory clocked, or better yet overclocked to 1,100MHz (2.2GHz). Just to give you a clear picture of the overclock, the reference card works at 625MHz for the core and 1,986MHz for memory.

As was the case with all the previous Golden Sample series cards, the new Gainward HD 4850 GS also uses non-reference cooling. A massive heatsink with dual heatpipes with and a center placed fan is used to cool this card.

We are hoping that we will see the Golden Sample HD 4870 card soon, as Gainward appears to be very serious about its lineup of ATI cards.
