this is a cracking deal, i paid close on £150 for one of these made by sapphire only about 3 months back. voted hot!
#2
Delivery is an unacceptable £8.95. Deal is hot but Aria delivery charges are daylight robbery.
#3
£128 delivered, always include the price of delivery apart from that is a good deal voting hot.
#4
Voted hot, seems good price for a 4890.

Can I Crossfire this with a 4870 512MB or do you need 2 of the exact same models to Crossfire?
1 Like #5
you dont need two exact models but you do need the same memory, i.e both 512 or 1gb. Otherwise the most it will use from both cards is 512mb.

Good price though

Interesting, I agree mostly if that is for standard delivery, its probably close to the real cost for them to send out though. Retailers normally load the product margin with shipping or present a more true to cost delivery option, which is better?
#7
Good deal for the card, but not great value overall for graphics. you can get a 1GB 4870 with delivery for about 109 quid at overclockers. Im sceptical its worth spending much more on DX10.1 cards, when in a month or so there will be better alternatives and DX11 compatible to boot.

In this case I am sure they load the price for delivery to provide a cheaper product price. I recently purchased two items from them which together weighed more than this would and the postage was £6.95.
The real cost incl p+p is £128. Not a bad price.
At Scan it is £128.64 including a game
http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductID=1127688&source=froogle
and if you qualify you can get free delivery (which a lot of people do qualify for).
So it would be 64p more but you get a game.

Which is a better deal?
You would have to make your own mind up, but with Arias P&P charges it isnt a fantastic deal. Just my opinion though.
#9
Cracking deal! I have a Sapphire 5850 and brother has a 4890 and to be honest there isn't a huge difference, certainly not 100 quids worth of difference that's for sure.
#10
Its a goodish deal. Expect 4890s to fall in price as the 5850s fall as well. They will try and get rid of old stock.

Will they fall soon? There seems to be not much ATI stock about

Im thinking more along the lines of the 5830 which should hit in a fortnight or so. Bridge the gap between the 5770, and the 5850 in price and performance. With luck 5830 should be closer in performance to 5850 than 5770, too
#13
Actually in the question will they fall soon, then that's the age old question and now I feel a bit silly for raising it. Price of technology is usually downwards. I assume the 4000 series was the last. Its managed to hold its price pretty well, but when 5000 cards come out in real supply they will be dumped. Ask yourself if you need dx 11 and eyefinity. Vulcan the 5830 sounds more it could be on a par with a 4890 but have the 5000 goodies. It would have to be considerably cheaper.
#14
5830 later this month should be worth holding out for, it'll probably be a fair bit more than £120 but will bottom out 4890 prices.
#15
i have one, will sell for £100 used but excellent condition

kinda expensive in it? £17 less than the cost of a new one.
#17
Oh yeah sorry about delivey :( only my second posting :D

I think the 5830 will be a killer too :) The 4890 is about 10-15fps faster than the 4870 and you can get a 4870 for £99 at OCUK but for £17 more you get a faster card :)

As for the crossfire question - the cards must be identical model & memory ie 2x 4890 1g or 2x4870 512mb you cant put a 1gb 4870 & 1gb 4890 in crossfire.

Wrong on both counts, you can crossfire two cards with different amounts of memory and you can crossfire a 4870 with a 4890 too.

They will both only run at the less or slower amount so if you crossfire a 4870 1gb & 4870 512mb they will both only run with 512mb nd if you crossfire a 4890 & a 4870 they will both run at the 4870 speed.

....Unless they changed it recently
#20
The 4000 series cards, especially the high end ones use so much energy, and require significant cooling. Good performance, but the 5000 series are better in so many ways. However, in basic value terms, these are good.

True but you didn't add that it uses more power, runs hotter, and runs louder.

Voted hot either way as it's still a good deal.
#22
I see that XFX are STILL using the same cooler design that was on my 7800GT. Even new it was noisy (not helped by the fact that it wasn't throttleable) and after 18 months the bearing ran dry, so it got even louder! Still, budget an after-market cooler in and it is still a bargain.

the 1GB HD4890 ranks 4th at the moment according to this: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html
#23
only 2 left on this deal as of yesterday, so probably sold out by now.
#24
It has gone back up in price, have a question for anyone who has this card, or who knows for definite.

Question is, I have a 4870 512 mb at the moment, I have researched it and most of the benchmarks I can find compare the 1 Gb 4870 to the 4890 , and at that it provides on average about 13% increase, on some other reviews I read that the 1gb does not really make a difference on the 4870 , does anyone have any benchmarks or has had the same card and upgrade to a 4890 and has notice an increase ?
#25
I have just checked on Aria's web site, It is still £117.49 inc. VAT with 20 in stock.
