HDMI Out a Compromise? Tags: New Build HDMI Systems Product Last response: November 28, 2008 5:50 AM in Systems Share dijedil November 27, 2008 6:21:57 PM Are there any performance differences (aside from Sapphire's sketchy rebate rep) between these cards? SAPPHIRE 100245L Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 POWERCOLOR AX4850 512MD3-DH Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 I'm not sure why the majority of cards only offer HDMI by way of adapter, which defeats the purpose of having 1 cable for audio and video. I have a long run (~25') and hate to run 2 cables if I don't have to. Thanks and happy Thanksgiving.
