TweakTown has reviewed GIGABYTE’s GeForce GTX 260.

Read the complete review here: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 260 Graphics Card

If you want to get in on the GTX bandwagon but still find the 280 too expensive, the GIGABYTE 260 might be your answer.

Conclusion:

The GTX 260 is definitely a good card in this price bracket and for people on SLI based motherboards we know that two of these cards are just going to absolutely fly along for only slightly more than a single GTX 280.

Expreview has just published a huge 25-page review about Radeon HD 4870 and 4850. Expreview compares Radeon 4870 and 4850 with other modern graphics cards such as Radeon HD 3870/3870 X2, GeForce GTX 280/260 and GeForce 9800 GTX.

Read the complete review HERE.


Radeon HD 4870


Radeon HD 4850

FurMark has been used to stress Radeon HD 4870 and 4850′s GPUs.

Final words
So, numbers can talk for itself. With the price tag $199(HD 4850) and $299 (HD 4870), RV770 is the BEST bang for the buck. Compare to GTX 260, A $299 only HD 4870 is a smarter choice. Yes, using this kind of word seems quite biased, but if you read all numbers from our review you will see my point.

Compare to GTX 260, HD 4870 is only 3/4 of its price while test items show the card have almost the same firepower!

HD 4850’s rival is 9800GTX, and we can see while their price keeps the same, HD 4850 have more than 15% leading.
