Mushkin, most well-known as memory manufacturers, said last month that they will delve into the graphics card market. They did pretty well, releasing nVidia GeForce GTX 260's, 275's, 285's, and the coveted dual-GPU GeForce GTX 295. By then, people were wondering if Mushkin would ever release an ATI Radeon card. And they did. Behold: Mushkin's UltimateFX Radeon HD 4850.
The card is cooled by a custom 92mm Arctic Cooling L2 Pro heatsink, passive memory cooling under its airflow, a heatsink over the VRM (voltage regular module) area, all housed on a standard red PCB. The card provides output for DVI, D-Sub, and 7.1 channel audio-routed HDMI connectors.
The card comes in two versions: An AMD reference clock speeds of 625/993 MHz (core/memory), and an OC variant with 700/1100 MHz (core/memory).
* Reference clock speeds: 625/993 MHz (core/memory)
* OC variant clock speeds: 700/1100 MHz (core/memory)
* 512 MB DDR3 memory
* GPU Cooling: Custom 92mm Arctic Cooling L2 Pro heatsink
* Memory Cooling: Passive
* DVI, D-Sub port, 7.1 channel audio-routed HDMI connectors
* Price: To be determined
After this first ATI graphics card is released, you can expect Mushkin to release some more Radeon video cards in the near future.
