HIS Radeon 4670, 4830 & 4850 Mid Range Round-Up

COD4 & Crysis Results

Call of Duty 4 is a stunning DirectX 9.0c based game that really looks awesome and has a very full feature set. With lots of advanced lighting, smoke and water effects, the game has excellent explosions along with fast gameplay. Using the in-built Call Of Duty features, a 10-minute long game play demo was recorded and replayed on each of the GPU's using the /timedemo command a total of 5 times. The highest and lowest FPS results were then removed, with an average being calculated from the remaining 3 results.

Crysis is without doubt one of the most visually stunning and hardware-challenging games to date. By using CrysisBench - a tool developed independently of Crysis - we performed a total of 5 timedemo benchmarks using a GPU-intensive pre-recorded demo. To ensure the most accurate results, the highest and lowest benchmark scores were then removed and an average calculated from the remaining three.

Something quite unexpected came out of the first run of benchmarks. After crunching the numbers, it worked out that the 4830 had by far the best Cost Per Frame. Normally, the budget cards offer the least performance, but due to their low prices have the best CPF, but this doesn't seem to be the case here. As for the results themselves, the 4850 is once again the easy leader, followed by the 4830 and 4670. Head on over to the next page to see if the 4830's form continues to be top-notch.

Nice review mate. That 4830 is a nice GPU, but it's just too close to the price of a reference 4850...

And that IceQ4 4850 is quite possibly the sexiest graphics card of the year.Quote

It is a rather lovely card.

As you say, the 4850 reference may pose a threat to the 4830, but even so, its still amazing value.Quote
