Picture of the Radeon HD 4650 Floats

A picture of the ATI RV730-based Radeon HD 4650 floated at ChipHell. This picture was edited to protect source. A colour picture of the cooler was already revealed earlier. The Radeon HD 4650 will succeed the HD 3600 series and will come in a variety of memory configurations, we covered here. It will support up to 1 GB of GDDR3 memory on a 256-bit wide memory bus.

be easier to use the same cooler like the one on the 4850, cheaper to make 1 than multiple coolers.

The one on that card and the one in the picture are the same cooler. They've masked it probably because it would reveal which AIB that card was made by and screw the mole who leaked the picture.

Different size/shape card/pcb, different size/shape cooler. 1 cooler for all can't work that way.

It wont. The 4850 cooler uses a lot of copper. Besides, the pcb looks very different as well as shorter.

Hopefully the 4650/70's have 480 Stream Processing Units (96 Stream Processors), and are based off the RV770 core. That would make them some nice mid-range cards.

Hey! I wouldn't call it a waste. For $75-80 bucks it's a damn good deal. :p

Thank you AMD for finally moving your midrange parts up to 256bit. Perhaps that means that R870 will be back to the 512bit memory bus config. I'm interested to know how one of these would perform versus an hd 3850/9600GT (as I think that'd be its competition)?

Not waste entirely because it still can play modern games, but if HD4650 got same price as HD3650 when first launch, I waste my money because of this:

Any info on the price?
