    Pictures of a fresh-bake Radeon HD 4670 have surfaced. There are several iterations of this card (as in display output configurations), the one in the picture has a dual-link DVI port along with two DisplayPort connectors. Sources tell GPU Café that the card manages a 3DMark Vantage Performance score of P32xx (anywhere between P3200 and P3299).

    The last we heard of this exact part, 128bit. There is a 256bit RV730 too. They've pumped out many variants out of these RV710 / RV730 chips.

    Remember that AMD dumped the ring bus so 128bit doesnt mean it will be crippled like the previous generations were.

    Okay there isn't a 256-bit RV730, I mixed it up with RV740. I spoke with GPU Café. Their explanation:

    Your house.
    You know, you've actually got a damn good point. I've seen R670's (3850's) online selling for as low as $59.99 with a rebate. There's your "mid-range" right there. :laugh:

    it might catch the old 8600GTS again, preformace should be on par with HD2900GT at best. This still means the HD38x0 and 9600GT/8800GS are better buys than this. Fail AMD

    Appears to be the same size as my old 7600GS.
    Looks like a good solution for the little shuttle cases.

    Didn't you knew that at 900MHz DDR and around 28GB/s it can only be 128bit? ....

    no it doesn't midrange is where its at.

    Midrange video cards are 100-300.

    That means from the 9600GT - 9800GTX+ are midrange

    from the HD3870 - HD4850 are midrange

    why buy a Radeon HD 4670 (RV730 or RV740)

    this carD was made especially for the HTPC and is meant to compete with the nvidia 9500GT but mostly its for the OEM folks.

    Its perfect for HTPC systems (small + less heat + less noise + plenty power + cheap etc)

    there is going to be cards for every system possible including servers/workstations/Desktops/laptops/htpc/iATX etc etc (SO THIS IS GOOD NEWS GUYS)

    NVIDIA are slowly losing in performance in almost every market segment. RV710 and RV730 will once again hit Nvidia really hard, just as RV770 and R700 did in mainstream and high end. NVIDIA cant do anything until 8 months minimum.
