Introduction



Last week AMD launched their Radeon HD 4550 Series which is based on the new RV710 GPU. The GPU is a derivative of the RV770 and includes all of its features, with a reduced shader and ROP count.
The cards are targeted at the entry level segment with focus on HD media playback. AMD has designed two reference boards. The one we review today features a passive cooler which makes it a great choice for a media PC because silence is key there. Also included is a native HDMI and DisplayPort output which underlines the HTPC positioning of this card. In case you are looking for a low profile card, AMD has also released a card that comes with a small, quiet fan that will fit into all the tiny low profile cases out there.
