[Tom's]4830 single and CF review

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Tom's review with 4830 compared to an 8800gt oced to 700Mhz core,both in single and CF configurations.catalyst 8.10 was used which might be due to apparent disliking of CF to newer catalysts.

Quote:
The benchmarks show a very close race between the Radeon HD 4830 and the GeForce 8800/9800 GT, making it very difficult to claim a clear win based on 3D performance alone. The Radeon HD 4830 did tend to perform a little better than the 8800 GT, and we shouldn’t forget that our test 8800 GT card was overclocked 100 MHz from the factory. However, the margins of victory are too small to easily dismiss the 8800/9800 GT as a bad buy compared to the new 4830.


When we look at the big picture, the 4830 begins to shine a little brighter. Notable features make the card more favorable, like true 7. 1 HD audio over the HDMI output, exceptional overclocking potential, and the ability to construct a cheap, yet powerful, CrossFire setup using a cost-effective P45 motherboard. When these features are combined with the 4830’s capable gaming prowess, it becomes an easier card to recommend.
