The Radeon HD 4670 is priced at $79, which in the past hasn't really gotten you a very good gaming experience regardless of who made the chip. Today's launch is pretty interesting because the 4670 has the same number of stream processors as the Radeon HD 3870 (320), which at the time of its launch was reasonably competitive in the $180 - $200 range. Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - Just wanna add a few words about market situation in such 'strange' (regarding to price policy) region as Eastern Europe, especially Ukraine, Russia. The rebate program isn't available here (in Ukraine) nor in Russia.
Jun 13, 2008 - AMD announced a new ATI Radeon HD3870 video card that is optimized for use on the Mac, but retains its PC compatibility as well. Jan 28, 2008 - The Radeon HD 3870 X2 - codenamed R680 - is literally two Radeon HD. The core and shader speeds have been increased from 775MHz to.
Don't know how about Poland. Here are the prices for mainstream VC: Radeon 4670 - about 100$ GeForce 9600GSO - about 120$ GeForce 9600GT - about 150$ As I said before, there is no rebate program available here, buying something on the ebay. Well, I can't trust my money to someone, who is living a thousands of miles from me:). Thursday, September 25, 2008 - Good review. I appreciate how you focused on 1280x1024 (as opposed to some people who wanted 1920x1200?!) as that is the monitor I'm still rockin. However, I'm curious how the 4670 performs in The Witcher with AA, regardless of how the 9500GT does.
I like this game and wonder what kind of performance hit I might expect were I to pick up the card. It would appear that nobody is watching the comments anymore since it broke down into fanboy/retarded complaining, but I'd like to know. Also, please no 'answers' from others who haven't actually run the game but want to speculate. I can perform such speculation on my own, and already have. Sunday, September 14, 2008 - I thought the review was great.
Thanks for being so thorough in your analysis vis-a-vis older cards. That's exactly the comparison people want to make. Not which current generation card is 5% better than another. But how much they gain from upgrading an older card to the latest generation.
• • Part 1: Notes before you use iPhoto to create collages But before you make a photo collage using iPhoto, here are some important things for you to know: • Technically, iPhoto can’t make fancy photo collages like other. For Mac users, iPhoto is a great tool to make a photo collage. So don’t expect too much of it. We can even add the photos to the digital photo frame or print it out for a physical poster display.

But there are two points left open: 1./ Performance at 1600x1200 or 1920x1200 which is the resolution that PEOPLE WHO READ THESE BENCHMARKS are interested in. I can guarantee you NOBODY is interested in the 800x600 figures you give. Nobody considering a performance part works at that resolution. But you left a big knowledge gap for the screen resolutions that most people with enthusiast PCs have: 1600x and 1920x1200.

2./ You say there is no win with the 4670 over 3870. For a few $ more you get a few% more performance, therefore 3870 QED. Many people are interested in silent machines or cool HTPC. The power usage figures between the 3870 vs. 4670 warrant 4670 winning in every case. I'm sure you can OC the 4670 to 3870 performance and still have a cheaper to run machine with less heat and silent. Otherwise, very informative review.
Sunday, February 15, 2009 - Actually no one is interested in such resolutions with a budget card. If you get a budget card, you accept that your likely to play at relatively low resolutions.
You'd have to be stupid to get a budget card and then try to play at 1920x1200. In case it isn't obvious, I personally hate it when stupid reviewers, perhaps insipired by equally stupid commentators test resolutions that no one is ever going to play with and then complain the card is too slow. I DO NOT care if the card can only manage 10 FPS at 1920x1200. It's completely irrelevant and doesn't help me in deciding which card to buy.
