I wonder how it compares to a stock gt640. Both are with 384 shaders and 128 bit

Unfortunately for graphics card providers, there is little need for consumers to buy a new GPU card unless they are building a new PC. Yes a small percenatge of PC consumers upgrade their existing systems periodically but there is little reason to do so these days even for most enthusiasts and it's going to get worse as AMD APUs take control of all segments of the PC industry, consoles, tablets, etc.

Only one of those SKUs is worth considering. The rest are boxes on shelves sold to uninformed people hoping to upgrade but who end up with sidegrades and could have done so much better with just another $20.

Yea can't see the up cost of DDR5 or a card with 2Gb, the sweet spot is a 1Gb DDR3. If you feel you want DDR5... go get a 7750, while 2Gb on this level of performance card isn't going to help much anyway except a few specific software applications.

Just a nice acceptable upgrade for those who have Intel Craphics, and straddled with some OEM 280-350W PSU. Should be no different than the GT640, but should see a TDP of <50W vs 65W, while undermine the GT640 on price which is super high. The best reason is when this can be found as half height low-profile and perhaps passively cooled.

Although, AMD is perhaps having difficulty as this segment is what APU's can provide, so it's a segment they've tried to stay out of. Though the reality is there's still large numbers of Intel I-B that sell in OEM machines, and not the HD4000... mostly the HD2500. AMD is figuring why not give customers no-brainer "plug-n-go" upgrade, that's more cost effective than the direct competitor.

I guess this will (finally) replace the 6670
