Geforce 9800 GX2 vs Radeon 4890 Tags: Graphics Cards Geforce Radeon Graphics Last response: June 11, 2010 6:57 AM in Graphics & Displays Share jagdipa June 10, 2010 10:31:35 AM I've been out of the loop with graphics cards for a while. I purchased a super computer with a Geforce 9800 GX2 1024MB PCIe card a while ago. The graphics card is now faulty, and the company is offering to replace it with a Radeon HD 4890 1024MB card. My question is, is this a good deal? Are the two cards comparible?

The 4890 is worse, but not terribly. You might even see an improvement in games as well.

Is there any reviews I can look at for this. For example, I am most interested in looking at Crysis FPS for both the cards. I have tried to search for this information in google, but havent found anything of value yet. jeffredo a b U Graphics card June 10, 2010 4:00:58 PM A GTX 285 would be a more appropriate comparison for a 9800 GX2. borisof007 a b U Graphics card June 10, 2010 5:45:00 PM A gtx 285 compares on par with a 5850, it's about the same level of performance.

This is exactly what I was looking for!! From this, I can see that the cards are more or less comparible - it all depends on the game. The GX2 might be ahead alittle. The most important page was the one with the resolutions. I have a huge monitor that runs 1900xwhatever, so the 4890 might be better for me. Please remember that this is a warranty replacement. So I dont have the choice to upgrade. I can only get one of comparible value. borisof007 a b U Graphics card June 10, 2010 10:28:07 PM jagdipa said:This is exactly what I was looking for!!

Yeah but when my 9800 gx2 died, I got the EVGA rep to give me a GTX 285, so it can happen by chance! : ) Maziar a c 169 U Graphics card June 11, 2010 6:57:15 AM Quote:Its XFX right? Ask for a HD5850 and sometimes the rep would be nice enough to approve it when they have excess stock. Good Luck! +1 Try to get a 5850,but at the end if you couldn't then don't worry much,4890 is still a good card Can't find your answer ? Ask !
