Today we are taking a look at the 4850 Matrix videocard from Asus that is very similar to the other 4850 cards Asus offers but this one comes with a lower clock frequency and hopefully a lower price. We are going to see how this card can handle high resolutions and also share our overclocking results from our testsl Lets have a closer look.

Looking at the box Asus has printed a big shield and a sword where the videocard is the handle of the sword. Lets see if this card is as sharp as a sword. Inside the box you will find several different adapters and accessories, for example you get a VGA to DVI, HDMI to DVI, Crossfire bridge and also some power adapters.

The manual explains installation and some minor functions but they have also included a multi language manual for your convinience. The driver cd holds some software and drivers although I prefer to download the latest drivers from the net.

The card itself is very similar to a 9800 GX2 card with the same PCB color and cooler.
