Conclusion: ATI's Radeon HD 4670 was already the best card under $80 (currently around $70) but Sapphire has added even more value to it with GDDR4 memory and silent, superior cooling. If you have your eye on the Radeon 4670 this card is definitely one of the best and probably the fastest.
Conclusion: While we know better than to base our judgment of any piece of hardware on its technical specifications alone, that doesn't mean we can't marvel a little at the progress seen in the graphics industry these days.
Sapphire Radeon HD 4670 Ultimate 512MB video card review
25 March 2012
Conclusion: It really shouldn't be too difficult to imagine who Sapphire's Radeon HD 4670 Ultimate is aimed at, and indeed who would be impressed by such a board - If you're looking to build a silent or near-silent system, then this card's passive cooling solution doesn't just fit the bill, but it also does so...
Sapphire Radeon HD 4670 GDDR4 512MB video card review
25 March 2012
Conclusion: While the Radeon HD 4670 in any form is never going to blaze new trails in gaming performance terms, it does offer up enough horsepower for both casual gamers and those looking to game at lower resolutions - In the vast majority of cases 1280x1024 poses no problem for this diminutive little card,...
Summary: The Sapphire Ultimate Radeon HD4670 is definitely well suited to an HTPC installation. No noise, minimal power consumption, and manageable heat output are some of the items that are desirable but sometimes hard to obtain with a card that can perform well.
Pros: » Excellent solution for an HTPC, » Passively cooled - absolutely silent, » Low power consumption, » HDMI port built-in (as well as VGA and Dual Link DVI), » Under $100
Cons: » Will get warm without proper case cooling, » Definitely not for serious gamers
Summary: As you can see from the performance graphs I feel the 4670 preforms well for its mid range £60 price. I was impressed with its results in all of the tests, coming in just behind of the more expensive 9600GSO, as you would expect.
Pros: Good performance, - 512Mb of DDR4 RAM, - CrossfireX Ready, - Low power consumption, - Quiet fan and good cooling, - HDMI with 7.1 audo port, - Affordable price
Cons: - Not suitable for heavy DX 10 gaming, - Takes up two card slots, - Lots of competition
Summary: As I've said before, the Sapphire HD 4670 is a card, that's designed and aimed at the average gamer and mainstream users. The performance is a lot lower than its bigger brother, the HD 4850 ... but then again, that's not really a fair comparison.
Conclusion: As we can see from the graphs, HD4670 is positioned between the 9500GT and 9600GT, which reflects their prices. As always with this price range, you get into the danger of arguing that it’s better to spend €10 more on the next card in line with better performance, but usually in that case you end up...
