    News - Sapphire adds a little zest to the Radeon HD 4670 with GDDR4 memory

    We're pretty fond of AMD's Radeon HD 4670, and Sapphire is making it all the more interesting with a custom SKU and GDDR4 memory.

    Nice card. The cool thing about the 4670 is not needing any additional power connector. It's a good HTPC/Games hybrid and well priced. Hopefully this will also be well priced. Performance similar to older 3850 card but with better power consumption. I'll hazard a guess that GDDR4 will also overclock further.

    Mmmmm, me wants one!!!

    AND HDMI on the backplane, not an adapter... Nice..

    Any pricing news on this card?

    I was going to get a 4670 but will hold off until I know how much more this one will cost. It would also be interesting to see how well it stacks up against more expensive cards like the 4830.

    If I remember rightly the 4670 is in league with the 3850 (256mb model), this may put in line with the 512mb model roughly. I've read that they are using poor quality GDDR4 though. I've not been able to find any info. regarding the UK. These are out and about in Europe, but we will probably be charged extortionate prices once again.

    The previews of the original 4670 estimated £50-£55 on release, stores held out to £65- £80. I expect these will just be a gimmick which will cost more, pushy them in to 9600gt territory. These cards wil proably be cooler, there for suiting the home media systems which I think they are intended for.

    Will just have to wait and see how the reviews fare once they are rolled out.
