Radeon HD 4830 Reviewed

Guru3D reports that “……. AMD ATI launched a sub-$150 HD 4000 series video card that will take on NVidia, in the shape of the Radeon HD 4830, which really is a 4850 yet slightly neutered. We expect its price to settle at 119-129 USD. This card will have 640 stream processors, a 256-bit memory interface and GDDR3 memory, and slot in-between the Radeon HD 4850 and HD 4670…..”.

“….. What is The HD 4830 targeted at? Well, considering the NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT and 9800 GT retail for around $130, it seems likely AMD would continue the pressure by also aiming for those products.
We have both the reference sample yet also a retail sample in house. The retail sample comes from HIS technology, and that thing just is really cool …….”.

I miss the days of MS CFS CFS2 online gaming. My setup runs those old favorites like a LAWNMOWER through BUTTER. I tested for many hours on FSX. 1920x1080x32 on a Samsung SyncMaster2233SW 21.5″. With no overclocking on the CPU or GPU – I like this card and setup for what I paid for it. Would I like a $9,000 box. Yes, If I could find a better job than at Burger World, but hey, a man has gotta know his limitations.

Thanks Ian!!!

The short answer to your question, which you won’t want to hear, is “no”. Because FSX is so configurable and behaves so differently on two apparently identical systems (in terms of CPU speed and amount of RAM) there’s no way of telling what you’ll get except looking for yourself. The chances are, however, that if you move every slider to the right, the answer will be “low” when flying anywhere other than the deepest backwoods of the middle of nowhere. MS FS – any version so far – is more interested in CPU speed and system RAM than GPU speed… Read more »

Can anyone tell me how many FPS you get on MS FSX with this Graphics Card and an AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ processor (with 4GB RAM and Windows XP)with FSX’s detail maxed out.

Thank you for your help.
