Still can’t believe what you just read? Well, even I was stunned when I first read headline in the press release. TUL Corporation’s PCS HD4850 is the world’s first graphics card to offer on-board 2gig video memory. The card is based on RV770 core chip, with 800 stream processors and 2GB of GDDR3 high-speed memory. According to firm, the card is powerful enough to drive most demanding applications, including most intense 3D games, even those with artificial intelligence, physics operations and tessellation.
Here’s the official version explaining benefits of 2gig video memory:
Memory size makes a great impact on performance, even a powerful GPU can suffer from bottlenecks due to slow and insufficient video memory. The more the memory buffer, the more the data graphics can be saved – thus eliminating the need to access system memory and providing faster graphical performance. To satisfy the latest and upcoming games requirements, PowerColor PCS HD4850 2GB can fulfill high video memory request of those games and delivers high throughput for interactive visualization of large models and high-performance for real time processing of large textures and frames, enables the highest quality and resolution full-scene anti-aliasing (FSAA).
