512MB 4850 vs 1GB 4850 Tags: Graphics Cards Performance Graphics Last response: September 20, 2008 2:03 AM in Graphics & Displays Share cloudzero September 20, 2008 1:24:26 AM does anyone know if there is a noticeable performance difference? More about : 512mb 4850 1gb 4850 dagger September 20, 2008 1:39:58 AM There isn't. 4850 isn't powerful enough to run at the extreme resolutions needed to make 1gb matter anyway. Get the cheaper 512mb model. Yuka a b U Graphics card September 20, 2008 1:47:38 AM Uhm... The 1Gb model is aimed towards the XFire crowd with hell-big resolutions. So, if you play in a 30" display at max res, you *might* want the 1Gb version, but we would slap face you, lol. At that kinda res, you might want a 4870X2 or a GTX280, or a couple of those Anyway, in a range of res below 1900x1200, the difference, like dagger said, isn't worth it right now. Maybe in the "near" future we'll see more vram demanding games Esop! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
