    Although AMD will officially announce the Radeon HD 3450 and Radeon HD 3470 on January 23th, they intend to give visitors a glimpse of their new product at CES. The Radeon HD 3470 and 3450 both utilize the 55nm TSMC manufactured RV620 Pro and RV620 LE GPUs with core clocks of 800MHz and 600Mhz respectively. Both cards support the PCI Express 2.0 specification, and feature 40 stream processors, full DX10.1, SM4.1, UVD, Powerplay support. The cards will have 64-bit memory interface with 256MB of GDDR3. The Radeon HD 3470 will use 950MHz GDDR3 whereas Radeon HD 3450 will use 500MHz GDDR2. AGP versions of both cards is also expected to arrive in near future.

    When can we see some crossfire x vs trisli comparision.
    When will they fix the phenoms.I think it would be better if they remove the L3 cache add some extra to L2 and L1 if possible and sell 'em.
    What happened to spidey platform.Skulltrail looks like its gonna do this:nutkick:

    So, this is the HD2400 replacement. In that case, these new cards should be in the $50-$75 price range. I am not sure if they will be much of an upgrade over the HD2400 series... I guess we will have to wait for the benchmarks. The smaller die should mean cooler operating temperatures, so I would expect to see a lot of passive cooling options on these cards.

    These cards will be great for home theater and basic low-end systems.

    As far as having AGP video cards... seems like ATI's more recent drivers have been causing problems with the newer AGP cards. Hopefully the next driver release will be better.

    Die sizes haven't change, only the 2900 series wasn't on 55nm process, but the 2600 and lower all used 55nm process. They may have made the cores more power efficient though, which is still a plus point for anybody using one of these in their HTPCs.

    The HD 2600 and HD 2400 are on 65nm not 55nm :slap:

    it's nice to see AMD/ATI continuing to support AGP. It's a niche market at this point, though, and it won't last forever . . .

    The funny thing about Intel Skulltrail is that it supports both Crossfire X and SLI. *shock and awe*

    These ones, the HD3450 and HD3470 will make sweet HTPC component offerings.
