"Beneath its blood-red exterior beats the heart of a true warrior. The XFX Radeon HD 4830 features advanced multimedia capabilities, PowerPlay for energy savings, UVD2 for H.264 decoding and 7.1 audio output over HDMI. A single 6-pin power cable powers you up to full performance and two Crossfire connectors allow up to four cards in a CrossfireX setup.

Features
- ATI Radeon HD 4830 GPU @ 575MHz
- 512MB GDDR3 Memory @ 1800MHz
- 24x custom filter anti-aliasing (CFAA) and high performance anisotropic filtering
- PCI Express 2.0 support
- 256-bit GDDR3 memory interface
- ATI CrossFireX Multi-GPU Technology
- Microsoft DirectX 10.1 support
- Shader Model 4.1
- ATI Avivo HD video and display technology
- Unified Video Decoder 2 (UVD) for Blu-ray and HD Video
- Built-in HDMI with 5.1 surround sound support
- On-chip HDCP
- XFX Uprated cooling system, upto 20c cooler than stock cooler making it ideal for overclocking

This is a great card for the money with excellent cooler. Can easily be overclocked to 4850 performance. Cant see it cheaper elsewhere. I know new cards are (apparently) due soon but I still think this is good value for money.

Quidco available"

Thought this deal deserved a repost as the price has dropped by a fair bit (almost 5%).

Credits (and rep) go to Gav for the original deal and Swoosh for spotting the price drop.

"but needs auxiliary power"

Get a 4 pin molex to 6 or 8 pin adaptor for a few quid extra.

On your travels did you spot a deal for a 4850?

Not yet, they're all still hovering round the £110 mark. They should start dropping soon. Besides, overclocked, this card is only very slightly slower than a 4850.

So would this card be able to send my amp lossless hd audio soundtracks via HDMI, such as DTS-HD MA and Dolby TrueHD?

"Most graphics cards that implement HDMI simply pass SPDIF from the motherboard's audio codec over HDMI, which is unfortunately only enough for 2-channel LPCM or 6-channel encoded Dolby Digital/DTS audio. Chipsets with integrated graphics such as NVIDIA's GeForce 8200 and Intel's G35 will output 8-channel LPCM over HDMI, but AMD's 780G will not.

All of AMD's Radeon HD graphics cards have shipped with their own audio codec, but the Radeon HD 4800 series of cards finally adds support for 8-channel LPCM output over HDMI. This is a huge deal for HTPC enthusiasts because now you can output 8-channel audio over HDMI in a motherboard agnostic solution. We still don't have support for bitstreaming TrueHD/DTS-HD MA and most likely won't anytime this year from a GPU alone, but there are some other solutions in the works for 2008."

No graphics cards can send hd audio codecs to receivers without downsampling them at the moment, slysoft will be releasing a player this year that will let £35 amd 4350's and other 4000 series cards to send audio without downsampling but currently there is no way to do this, you need the asus AV1 £160 soundcard for that.

this card is end of line btw, new amd cards in 4890 coming over next few weeks.

And an overclocked 4850 is only slightly lower than a 4870 :)

I already have a 4850, so wouldn't want to pair it with a 4830. I'm hoping the 4890's will push the prices down a bit. But this deal for a 4830 is still hot, it's the best price/performance deal I've seen so far.

Now, even as a marketing professional, that takes the b*l*sh*t biscuit.
It is a graphics card, not a sodding episode of Highlander...

"...the Radeon HD 4800 series of cards finally adds support for 8-channel LPCM output over HDMI..."


You should have no problem decoding the HD audio into 8-channel LPCM within your Software Player, and then squirting this to your amp over the lossless HDMI link. There's no downsampling going on here - it simply means the Decoding step is taking place inside your PC instead of inside your Receiver.

heres one for £103 factory overclocked at scan xfx xxx best i can find at the moment
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/512MB-XFX-ATI-Radeon-HD-4850-650M-DDR5-DUAL-DVI-XXX-EDITION the problem is its on pre order

good review from hexus: http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=17578 which says the price is £124.99 so i guess scan is selling it cheaper than rrp.

"XFX's Radeon HD 4850 XXX 512MB graphics card builds on the solid foundations of the reference design, but improves upon it with a better-performing cooler and a slight boost to each of the three core frequencies - core, shader, and memory.
