FINAL RESULT

COMMENT - "Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 delivered some very good performances against Gainward Radeon HD 4870. Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 and Gainward Radeon HD 4870 are priced quite close together with Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 being only 17% more expensive. The problem Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 has is Gainward Radeon HD 4870 and the excellent performance it can give for it's price. If you play either Call of Duty World at War, Far Cry 2 or Race Driver then Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 is the clear winner and well worth it's price. However if you play the other games then the difference in performance between Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 and Gainward Radeon HD 4870 is close enough to pick either video card. However if the Far Cry 2 performance is a good indicator for future gaming performance then the only winner is Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2."
