ATI Radeon HD 4770 review -
Unboxing - Radeon HD 4770 512MB (2)
When we flip the board around once more we can see CrossfireX connectors located at the top. In theory it's possible to hook up three maybe even four of these cards and get them working together, though we advise not using more than two for best compatibility.
Drivers quickly become an issue when using more than two GPUs simultaneously.
A 6-pin power connector. The PCIe slot will deliver 75 Watts. Apparently it's not enough for this 'budget' card as it needs to feed from another 75 watt source. The TDP (peak wattage) for this card is set at 80 watts.
It's time to insert the card into our test-system and see what she does. In a twilight environment, red goes dark... so that makes the overall aesthetics a bit more mysterious.
One final shot. Over the next pages we'll tell you a tale or two about our test system and software used, and then obviously fire off some benchmarks at the product to see what kind of performance we actually get returned. But first, due to the beta drivers we obtained, we need to check up on image quality.
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.
