ATI Breaks a GPU Speed Record

One of these cards is the worlds fastest graphics card and one is not. If you chose the one on the left, your wrong. Bow your head in shame and leave the room. Everyone else, feast you eyes on the Ati Radeon HD 4890. Ok so we lied, they’re both HD 4890’s but one (or both) is factory overclocked to 1GHz which is 250MHz faster than the original model, and the world’s fastest GPU. 1GHz isnt in the range of anything really phenomenal for overclockers, but the beauty of this beast it’s air cooled with the stock fan and shipped with a 1GHz clock speed which in turn can be overclocked.

Congrats ATI. Our only issues is that certain 3rd party makes of the HD 4800 series have been notorious for running a little hot, often requiring a simple fan speed hack to up the rpm’s and bring the temperature down from surface of the sun level heat. With a 1GHz clock speed, this monster should be able to heat your apartment, but we can’t say that for sure until we try it out ourselves.
