On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at high-res and then scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D 12 MegaPixel.
There it is in its full glory, the Radeon HD 4550. A nice and tiny card. There also is a 256MB passively cooled model available.
The backside, where also memory chips are located. The engineering samples have Samsung 64bit memory modules.
When we flip around the card we see the single slot cooler a tad better. It does the job sufficiently. It's not at all loud. And though the core temperature of the GPU can get hot, it's not disposing heaps (volume) of heat inside your PC. Always make sure your PC is properly ventilated with at least one intake and one exhaust fan though.
The lowest of low do not come with CrossFire fingers/connectors. Though unconfirmed I bet you that Crossfire will work though. yet the data volume is so low that it can be managed over the PCIe bus.
Armed and activated. Ready to undergo a rather hefty (for this card) benchmark session.
ATI Radeon HD 4770 review Today we have another bang for buck product, a product that I like very much. As what ATI is doing today is pretty remarkable. They are releasing the Radeon HD 4770, a mainstream product at a budget price. Trust me when I say that after reading this review, you will be impressed.
ATI Radeon HD 4550 512MB review Today we test the Radeon HD 4550. It's the cheapest desktop graphics product that ATI can deliver at your doorsteps. This Radeon HD 4550 (GPU codename RV710XT) comes with an optional 256 MB GDDR2 or optional 512MB GDDR3 and will cost you .. 45 to 55 USD respectively.
AMD ATI Radeon HD 4870 1024MB review Today a test and review on the new AMD ATI Radeon HD 4870 1024MB. Obviously ATI is releasing a 1GB model to compete with the new Core 216 version of that GeForce GTX 260. The 4870 series really diggs that GDDR5 memory bandwidth, and what's the cheapest thing to do to gain some extra performance ? Increase the framebuffer volume. Now that by itself is not going to work miracles, yet in memory limited situations (loads of high quality textures, filtering and AA modes) it will help you here and there. And a little bit of extra bite is all the product needs to get beat that Core 216 card again.
ATI Radeon HD 4670 review We test the ATI Radeon HD 4670. A nice little card that packs some decent punch in the value minded consumers.
