Redefine HD Gaming

The ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series GPUs deliver a cinematic gaming experience with unprecedented performance. The powerful new TeraScale graphics will propel you deep into your gameplay with seamless frame rates and high resolutions. Enhanced anti-aliasing (AA) and anisotropic filtering create striking graphics with unparalleled realism so you can max out the settings of the most demanding next-generation games or revitalize your favorite titles. Play today while preparing for tomorrow with tessellation, support for DirectX® 10.1 and scalable ATI CrossFireXTM technology.

ATI AvivoTM HD Technology

ATI AvivoTM HD is the advanced image and video processing and display technology found in ATI RadeonTM HD GPUs and ATI TheaterTM video capture processors. Specifically designed for HDTV and HD video enthusiasts, ATI Avivo HD provides brilliant colors, sharp images, smooth playback of Blu-rayTM* and HD video content, HDMI with built-in multi-channel digital audio, and on some GPUs, Unified Video Decoding (UVD). UVD is designed to enable a cool and quiet media PC with low CPU power requirements and playback of HD 1080p content. HD Monitor is required for full 1080p enjoyment.

HDMI Video and Audio

A system with an ATI RadeonTM HD 4800 Series graphics card can help enhance the HD entertainment experience by providing a seamless connection to an HDTV or home theater system. With built-in 7.1 surround sound audio (AC3 / DTS ), the new GPUs and graphics cards support single cable connection directly to a compatible HDTV, projector or receiver. This single cable carries both the HD video and 8 channel audio for a clean, high definition connection. Some graphics cards will be equipped with an HDMI connector, while others will output the HDMI signal using a special ATI Radeon DVI-I to HDMI adapter. These options give consumers more options and flexibility when connecting their PCs to monitors or home theaters for maximum enjoyment of HD content. The new GPU also supports xvYCC color which can display a wider range of color when connected to capable HDTVs.

performans mükemmel ses mükemmmel teşekkürler his

After about 4 months bought this card I must say it was good... but just for a normal use and a normal time of gaming, not for hours.
It's a great bang for bucks with its price and 'normal' performance, but just till that, not for more if u're pretend to use it 'above' normal, meant overclocking and great hours of gaming, all because of its' downgraded HSF and PCB component related to voltage regulator lacks of the infamous Volterra.

But realizing that it's being a cheapest HD4870 1GB outthere on it's 'normal' performance, it's still rather great bang for bucks for most users.

great card! i almost bought a 9800GTX+ but its a good thing i changed my mind! runs Crysis great on high settings, and runs great with my overclocked Phenom II X2 550 BE!!

I LOVE THIS CARD!!!

It's amazing. Stunning graphics and great performance. Greetings from El Salvador. This is worty!!

Good GPU ... run all my games very well.

Good card. Better than an nVidia 9800GTX+. Depending on the type of case you have, it can run warm (about 85c under load and about 50c when idle) but that seems to be the normal operating temps. Does a great job with games like Crysis, Dead Space, and Tomb Raider Underworld.

Very cool running card/ I would rate this product 10/10.
