ATI Radeon HD 4860 technical specs and benchmarks

ATI Radeon HD 4860

Summary

ATI started Radeon HD 4860 sales 9 September 2009. This is a TeraScale architecture desktop card based on 55 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 0.5 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 3 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 96.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. An additional 2 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 130 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 12.56 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
