uly 25 2008, Taipeiโ€” Following ATI's introduction of the HD4850 and HD4870, shocking the graphics card industry and astonishing hardware enthusiasts and the media in June, the renowned graphics card manufacturer, Info-Tech GECUBE, announced the introduction of its HD4850 Overclocking series today in an attempt to capitalize on the success of this chipset. The GECUBE RadeonTM HD4850 Overclocking series is the first to include the new generation of Zalman fan; the ultra-quiet and ultra-cool working environment along with the second generation 55nm GPU, PCI-Express 2.0 interface, full support of DirectX10.1/SM4.1 and ATI's CrossFireXTM technology, built-in HDCP and HDMI output, as well as hardware support for Blu-ray and HD-DVD decoding, give this card excellent overclocking capabilities and bring high-definition gaming to life. It creates a whole-new 3D gaming experience and provides optimal visuals.
GECUBE's newly-introduced HD4850 Overclocking series incorporates ATIโ€�s HD4800 series technology and the new generation of TeraScale graphics engine. It tunes up the frequency of the stream processor to 800MHz and is equipped with a RV770PRO (55nm) GPU and 512MB of GDDR3 memory, which allows overclocking of core and memory frequencies up to 670MHz and 1050Mhz, respectively. On top of the improved extreme overall performance, this graphics card supports the new DirectX10.1/SM4.1 and ATI's CrossFireXTM technologies as well as 24X anti-aliasing (AA) to present the finest and most realistic HD gaming graphics ever. It gives you state-of-the-art visual enjoyment and the best real-life simulation brought about by the most advanced 3D gaming image technologies. The GECUBE RadeonTM HD4850 Overclocking series includes HDMI and HDCP output as well as upgraded 7.1 channel audio; it incorporates UVD 2 (Unified Video Decoder 2) and fully supports the newest Dual-stream and picture in picture (PIP) functions offered by Blu-ray and HD-DVD. Exceptional technology combined with ultimate video playback gives a perfect presentation of the finest image quality, up to 1080p resolution.
Other than the fully upgraded overclocking capabilities, the GECUBE HD4850 Overclocking series is the first to include Zalman fan. This exclusive design provides users the best operating environment while enjoying the most extreme image processing technologies and qualities. The Zalman fan utilizes 0.3mm ultra-light aluminum fans spinning at a low speed of 2700rpm. This makes the HD4850 Overclocking series lighter than its predecessors and quieter, with noise levels around 28.5dB; this remarkable design certainly provides the quietest performance among the industry. Further more, the structure between the heatsink and the fans is consisted of four heat pipes, which greatly reduces the heat generated during operation and thereby taking the science of cooling to a whole new standard; the presentation of quality video and 3D gaming has never been so attractive. The ultra-quiet cooling designs and unmatched performance give GECUBE RadeonTM HD4850 Overclocking series users the coolest and quietest operating environment while experiencing the finest video quality and the most realistic 3D visuals.
The GECUBE HD4850 series use second-generation 55nm, which when combined with the latest TeraScale graphics engine, deliver optimal and efficient performance and meantime, maintain high-resolution image quality while processing many game programs. The GECUBE HD4850 series includes the latest DirectX 10.1 technology. It offers 32-bit floating point filtering support and breaks new ground in illumination quality with the use of Global Illumination technology, and High Dynamic Range (HDR) illumination are also boosted. The addition of Geometry Shader technology in particular accelerates the processing of 3D effects such as bump mapping. Graphics data can now be cycled within the graphics card itself, greatly improving the realism of particles and shadows. DX10.1 includes Shader Model 4.1 image optimization technology as well as the upgraded all-new 7.1 channel surround sound and the ATI Avivoโ�ข HD Video graphics technology designed for HDTV and HD Video aficionados. allows GECUBE HD4850 Overclocking series to achieve perfect audio and video performance as well as excellent 3D gaming visuals. With the incorporation of the newest technologies and cooling designs, GECUBE HD4850 Overclocking series shall take the quality of graphics cards to a whole new standard, offering more and better selections to consumers.
