    AMD's newest line of desktop graphics cards in the making, Radeon HD 4700, will be launched in weeks to come. The Radeon HD 4770 model in particular, is the company's move to compete with NVIDIA's GeForce 9800 GT, while at some highly competitive price-points. Earlier in February, a sample made its way to Guru3D, which revealed quite a bit about the SKU. It looks like AMD's partners, at least HIS, is ready with its HD 4770 card, according to a press-shot leaked by Chinese website ITOCP.

    The pictures show the card to feature a PCB visibly identical to the reference PCB candidate spotted on the Guru3D sample, while featuring a company-designed cooler. The cooler consists of a GPU block from which metal fins project radially, on which a fan is present, decked with a fancy shroud. Also pictured are the box design, and package contents. The common features of the Radeon HD 4770 are known to be: 40 nm RV740 GPU, 640 stream processors, 128-bit GDDR5 memory interface, and CrossFireX support. This card features 512 MB of memory. The price of this card is not known, though AMD reportedly set a US $99 target SEP price for the Radeon HD 4770.

    Awesome budget card. Must be a lot cheaper to make than 9800GT due to 128 bit bus and 40nm dies. Should make AMD a loada cash.

    We all know, AMD needs it! That HSF just doesn't look right...it almost looks bigger than the card is.

    heat and power.

    were im living right now you get ambient temps of 40c or 104f so i want to reduce heat output and power consumption as much as i can, and still drive a 4 monitor setup:D

    Nope, the 4770 is closer to the 4850 than the 4830, and it's much much cheaper

    Yes, I'm very pissed about that since I got the 4830... I feel like I've drawn the shortest straw :banghead:

    GDDR5 at 128bit is just as fast as GDDR3 at 256bit apparently.
