After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com

ATI Radeon HD 4850 w/512MB GDDR3
We are using the Radeon HD 4850 512MB of DDR3 RAM as the baseline card for our testing. The 4850's are a strong performing video card with a very good price range. It sits in the $130-$160 price range and is on the bottom of the high-end graphic cards segment.
With all that being said the Sapphire Radeon HD 4670 is being pitted against the Radeon HD 4850 to illustrate a bang for the buck between the two cards. Is the Sapphire Radeon HD 4670 strong enough to satisfy most thrifty gamers for under $100?
Lets find out!
