I am confused, which would be better?
would like to know as well.
since the gt 130 is the 9600gt .
I would say the ati 4850 is a lot faster.
But the GT 130 is definitely better than the previous gen?
Yeah, I think the GT 130 is a 9600m. As for which is better, the 4850 is leagues better than the stock GPU on the high-end 24".
the previous gen had a nvidia 8800gs.
so yeah I guess it should be an improvement
I don't think it's that incremental of an improvement. If you want a pretty good GPU to get around, go for the $50 and get the 4850.
I have searched through a few news on hardware websites and they say that the gt 130 is either a 9600gs or 9600gt.
the ati 4850 should give you enough power to play all current games if someone is searching for that.
Well I am coming from the 7600GT generation here (2.13 C2D) so I am looking to do the biggest upgrade I can.
It appears the 4850 stomps the gt150
Well ANY thing with the 4850 takes four to six weeks to ship
how much better is the gt130 vs the 8800GS?
then definitely go for the 4850
Depends what you plan on using them for if you guy s mean GT 130 as in the G94 (9600GT).
The 8800GT and 9600GT are along the same levels and both G92 and G94 support PureVideo with the 9600GT having an updated version of it. Both preform nearly identical so you should go with whichever is the cheapest.
The 4850 will be faster than both of them, but I'm not sure if it has the same feature as hardware assisted decoding of the H.246 and VC-1 codecs.
Four to six weeks?!?! WOW.
So basically the 4850 does have full hardware decoding acceleration fro H.264 and other codecs
I'm going for the ATI card when i get a couple extra hundred quid ready
The 8800GS > the GT 130. Hate the NV marketing BS. The 4850 > both though, not even close.
Thats because the drivers will be in the next Leopard update 10.5.7.
The GT 130 is a 8800 GS!? They are almost identical.
Definately the 4850!
Will the 4850 have better performance than the GT 130 in Windows as well?
Massively so of course, although I´d like to see clock speeds.
Essentially, you will be able to play almost everything at 1920*1200 at high details and 2FSAA + 16AF (excluding crysis but who cares).
What do you guys recommend for someone that does graphics design work and alittle video editing.
GT 130 or the ATI HD4850?
I don't think it will matter. Do either of those programs benefit from one chipset or the other?
They mainly use the CPU + RAM.
The question is: is the 4850 really some gimped mobility version? How are we supposed to know? Apple makes these decisions impossible sometimes.
Guess I'd better wait for a test by BareFeats before I decide (and buy).
The GT130 is just a rebadged 9x series card. Not sure which one, because at this point, Nvidia has rebadged the G92 cards 2-3x already, which is downright ridiculous.
Go with the 4850 though - it will be faster across the board, and in newer games, by a lot (plus, ATI writes better drivers for Mac OS X)
