Summary: ATI in general isn't anywhere near the stability of an nvidia product but us AGP guy's have no other option. Drivers can be basically a nightmare but after benchmarks the 13.9 WHQL from the ATI sit installing driver manually by browsing to the C:\ATI or AMD folder and finding the inf for display driver in Packages. Anyway the 13.9s run the fastest even compared to guru3d's modded 12.11 b11's...
HIS Radeon HD 4670 Upgrade for a Dell Dimension XPS Gen2
28 April 2014
Summary: This upgrade for an older Dell desktop worked great. It was difficult to find an AGP card to replace the old graphics card. Installation was pretty easy. The only difficulty was the HIS Radion HD 4670 required a power cable that the old card didn't require, so I had to add an extender to reach the cable bundle. The card is relatively quiet and speeds up the old Dell. Even though it's a bit pricey, I would highly recommend the HIS Radeon HD 4670.
Summary: Just magnificent . My asus ah4650 never would load catylist control center or more than 1400x1000 resolution.. Only a generic windows driver could be installed on Windows 7. I plugged this card into an Intel d875pbz mobo with a P4 3.0ghz cpu. Windows 7 updated drivers. I uninstalled the w7 driver and removed everything from programs from ATI or AMD. I disconnected my modem and rebooted the system. Loaded the driver/CCC/AVIVO on the cd that came with the new video card.
Summary: OK, so I got this product "new" from the seller Best Buy. Right away when I opened the package I knew something was wrong. Tons of dust! The thing was ether tested in a junk yard or it's used (obviously it was used, read on) After about 2 weeks (after cleaning it out even) it just quit. Black screen, no video at all.
Summary: I bought three of these for three old NIB Shuttle SB75G2's so I could have four identical computers for an old racing game. The cards are double wide, so I knew they wouldn't fit in my old SFF cases, I cut them, fit the cards and new life was given to three old computers. The cards are still running to this day and work perfect for Dirt 2 on an old 3.2Ghz S478 Pentium 4. Whoa that is old!
Summary: If this is the best they can do AGP went backward, way backward. Don't waste your time or money. Specs seem to be a lie. This cards performance is pitiful compared to the HD3850. Plays no better than a X850, even outperformed by my tweaked X1950. No good for COD4, Splinter Cell DA, ect. You might play Recon but not Advanced 2, it's that bad, and those games are OLD. Used this card to replace a HIS HD4650 that fried in less than a year, it was the now famous fan failure.
Summary: This is basically an end-of-life card for older AGP systems. That being said, it is a very good card. I am using it in an old Dell 533 MHz FSB, P4 3.06 GHz HT CPU system and have seen a huge performance boost. Issues with installing this card: 1. You need to jump the onboard HDMI audio if you're going to keep using your integrated audio. Just move the jumper cap on the card from 1-2 to 2-3 before installing the card. 2. You must use Catalyst AGP Hotfix drivers.
