"The Radeon HD 4830 graphics card is another winner from AMD and an easy choice for those wanting to do more than just gaming."
"AMD's latest entry into the graphics card market is a great addition to the mid-range market offering up tremendous gaming performance for less than $130 and putting NVIDIA's G92-based GeForce 9800 GT in a tight spot for the first time since its introduction. Both card offerings will most likely provide a good gaming experience, and I do have to mention the CUDA and PhysX support of the NVIDIA GPUs, but in the end I still side with raw performance and think the HD 4830 512MB card will be the better option."
"The ATI HD 4830 with the reduced 640 shader processors compared to the 800 of its 4800 series relatives still managed to put up some decent performances when compared to the Nvidia 9800GT cards. The features remain pretty much the same as the rest of the 4800 family. The RV770 LE GPU on the 4830 opens doors to overclock to even higher clock speeds than the 4850. This makes the 4830 the best bang of the buck card right now.
Performance wise its a perfect deal, as a single card or two cards in CrossFire, the 4830 managed to outperform the 9800GT on most of the games. So if you really cant spend more on a high end card or want a CrossFire setup for less, this is the without a doubt the way forward."
"Generally speaking, the 4830 proved to be a bit faster than the 9800 GT in our quick round of tests. In terms of overall performance, the contest between the two cards is close enough that, yes, going to a higher-clocked variant of the 9800 GT could potentially tip the balance in Nvidia's directionperhaps. But there are cases like Quake Wars, where the 4830 matched the more expensive GeForce 9800 GTX+, in which even a generous clock speed boost wouldn't allow the 9800 GT to keep up.
Still, these cards are matched closely enough, and perform well enough in many of today's games, that I wouldn't choose between them based solely on performance. Image quality is also something of a wash, with the two major GPU makers' DirectX 10-class chips producing roughly comparable output. AMD's slightly newer GPU architecture does have some potential advantages, including very strong performance with 8X multisampled AA and DirectX 10.1 support, but Nvidia has credible alternatives in the form of its 8X CSAA mode and the promise of PhysX acceleration in future games."
"Considering price/performance, the HD 4830 is one of the best offers on the market today only rivaled by some low-end NVIDIA cards.
What makes this card even more attractive is the massive overclocking potential we saw on our samples. Both cards easily went beyond 750 MHz core speeds which is more than 30% overclock. AMD's choice to reuse the fan of the HD 4830 seems right to me. The card is very quiet, while still running at acceptable temperatures under load.
AMD's HD 4830 may not be the super gaming card that can handle the highest detail settings at all resolutions, but for gamers on a small budget, running at 1280x1024 for example, it is a great choice."
