First review of Radeon 4890 HD hits the webs

Expect a lot more reviews in the next week or so; the 4890 is the product AMD has aimed at Nvidia’s high-end cards, and according to German site Gamestar, it’s doing a pretty good job. It couldn’t quite beat the GTX 295 without overclocking, but since it’ll probably cost about $100 less, we won’t hold that against it.

If you’re looking to spend around $300 on a video card (a bit above my own price range, but certainly within that of others), this will probably be your best value for a good couple of months. Of course, it also means that the prices on 4870s will drop even more, so it may be upgrade time for us mid-range customers.
