Today AMD has announced the ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series of mainstream graphics cards priced at well under $100. These are described as being able to deliver exceptional gaming and HD multimedia performance while consuming less power than a standard light bulb. Radeon HD 4600! To cards have been announced today: • ATI Radeon HD 4670 - 512 MB of GDDR3 - $79 • ATI Radeon HD 4650 - 512 MB of GDDR2 - $69 Both cards feature 320 stream processing cores. Note: A version of the HD 4670 with 1GB of memory is scheduled to be released later this month.
The press release accompanying the release emphasizes how little power these new cards draw: Both the ATI Radeon HD 4670 and ATI Radeon HD 4650 deliver substantial gaming horsepower with minimal power draw – the ATI Radeon HD 4670 operating at under 60 watts and the ATI Radeon HD 4650 operating under 50 watts under full load – eliminating the need for additional power connectors and making installation a cinch. Built with efficiency, scalability and performance in mind, the ATI Radeon HD 4600 series sets a new performance-per-watt standard for mainstream graphics products, thanks to the enhanced bandwidth of DDR3, new power management capabilities that provide greater performance and efficiency, and 55nm technology. The series features AMD’s second generation ATI PowerPlay™ technology which allows for automatic power adjustments based on the activity of the graphics processing unit (GPU), resulting in significant power savings when the GPU is idle. Moreover, ATI PowerPlay enables advanced clock gating, as well as increased voltage and memory scaling, delivering performance on demand with exceptional efficiency.
These cards also pack a punch: The result is that even in today’s most demanding games like Crysis, the ATI Radeon HD 4600 series delivers up to double the performance of competing products at the same price. This claim is backed up by the following footnote: The MSRP of the ATI Radeon HD 4670 is USD $79 and is the same price as the Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT based on www.newegg.com data available as of September 4, 2008. The ATI Radeon HD 4670 delivers up to double the performance of the Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT in games including Race Driver Grid (High Quality settings at both 1680x1050 and 1440x900), Half Life 2 (High Quality settings at 1680x1050 4xAA/16xAF), and Crysis (Medium Quality settings at 1680x1050 and 1440x900) as reported. This is sure to shake up the GPU market.
