The tweaktown review has a comparison with the Gigabyte HD 4850, Zotac 9500 GT Zone Edition, the 4870 in Crossfire and single configuration.

Check page 9 for the Crysis comparisson chart

It appears to **** all over the 9500 gt which is selling for about the same price.

no just means its the best you can get for the price bracket :-D

from some reviews it performs on par with a 3850 which is pretty good and beats a 9600gt in other tests, so for the price it seems a very good card, although I thought release price was going to be around £50.

But ideal for a smaller gaming PC where you only want to use up 1 slot with the graphics cards...

Would be interesting to see the noise the small fans produce.

How do people fit two graphics cards in? my 7600GT uses up two slots as it is because the fan is so big!

You have to specifically buy Crossfire/SLI capable computers, I'd assume they're larger than most motherboards because of the extra PCI-E slot. My dell (obviously) doesn't have that option, so I'm stuck with single cards only, my 512MB 8800GT.

But yeah isn't the HD4670 the best mainstream card at the moment? for >£60, aka within most moderate PC Gamers' range. I only got a 8800GT because it was ~ £75, their regular prices are rather steep for me.

They can't get any larger, haven't looked but I'm going to guess they rid of PCI slots which I use for sound card, video capture and firewire ;-)

Not really, the standard motherboard has seven slots so two cards taking up slot slots each is only four of those seven slots, or three cards taking up two slots each comes to six slots used with one spare for a suitibly impressive soundcard to accompany the setup.

Shorter mATX motherboards that are common in some manufacturers' pre-built systems only have four slots, but then they generally don't have the second PCI-E 16x slot for SLI anyway.

both crossfire and sli increse FPS only by a max of 20-25%. been on different forums and asked about. more sensible is to buy a better video card rather than 2 cheaper ones in SLi/ crossfire

anyway what shall I do with my 8800GTX that was 200£ last year? it plays every single game on the market at highest settings at 1920X1200. answer: ill keep it.

in case nobody has noticed, software writers cant keep up with technology. i got q6600 but i dont need it. got 8800gtx when there are cards twice better out there. what for? there is no game to stress them to the max.

back to the matter: you peoeple should be waiting for consumer reviews before buying a product.
#19
Just wandering if it is still better to pick up a 3850 instead, especially since they have been around longer and may be had for good prices second hand?
#20
i remember my first video card bought from my own money, the ATI Saphire X800 PRO. 230£ it was. you get it now on ebay for less than 20£. still a decend card these days
#21
New graphics card only really essential if you do a monitor upgrade tbh eg going from 19/20" to 24/26" etc.
#22
Currently building a new computer...one of the only bits I haven't chosen is a graphics card (mainly as I know nothing about them).

I don't play any games (use consoles), use the PC for work (web design, photoshop, video editing, other graphics design etc). I know I don't need a top of the range card, but will something like this do? Or am I better sticking to the older 3850? will be using it with a 24" monitor (HDMI)

Is the card likely to be quiet? I don't want too much noise...

Thanks..

JB

Is this better than the 8800gt 256mb which was on here a couple of days ago

Disagree with you on that, in my experience its advances in game design that have ALWAYS changed my needs! First it was for 3D games like Viper Challenge (ooooh) then for textures, then bump mapping?!?!?

Gave up after £300 in new cards and decided that a good console was a better investment for games....... which they're not really as you have to keep buying new ones to keep up just the same!! :whistling:

Im no expert but I'd say this would be more than ample for your needs if not overkill. I still have my (once impressive... to me) ATI 256 Radeon and it still does everything I need it to do in terms of video editing, Office apps, photoshop. I may be wrong but I dont think the GFX card will affect the ability to edit video much and I would expect that most load will be on your CPU and RAM??? If so concentrate on getting that right and you will be fine.

As for the noise, cant really say, my Radeon was whisper quiet until the fan blew and it started screaming like a banshee!!!

Hope that helps a bit??? Im sure others will correct if Im wrong..... :whistling:

Crossfire with the 4670 is pretty good from the review done at hexus.net, it puts it around the same performance of the 4850 so its still better to get the 4850(probably) but still its a good improvement on CF. Not trying to be petty or anything but its the other way round, hardware developers cant cope with software because its constantly changing they have to keep bringing out new cards, the cards need to catch up with the game. I doubt you can play Crysis on Veryhigh @ 1900x1200res at a decent FPS(60 normaly but >40) which is why the 4870x2 and gx280/60/4870/50 are needed. I currently have the 8800GTS g92 based which is the eqivilant of your 8800GTX and it does well but some games could be better. Crysis needs optimizing but its still shown how gfx cards needed to be sorted.

Good price, they are perfect for media pc's for blu-ray/hd-dvd and they consume hardly any power in comparison to most cards that are idle.

worse in terms of performance on games(99% sure on that) but on power usage then it wins, your better off stickign with the 3870 but it depends on what you use it for.
#29
not at all bothered about power consumption, was more for performance, cheers!
#30
Does anybody know if this card (Or series) is or will be available in low profile format?

I am looking at a HD3450 LP model but just wondering whether to wait a bit? I have an 'old' SFF HP PC that I want to turn into a HTPC (Slight question on whether the PSU is up to it though!)

this card will beat a X1950pro in most modern games (Crysis and Grid ect). you also get the added bonus of having DX10 card rather than only a DX9 card. in older games the performance will be very close as these new Dx10 cards have to emulate Dx9 rendering paths due to the difference in arcitecture (seperate pixel and vertex shaders DX9 vs unified arcitecture DX10 cards).

If you want compare this video card check this:

http://pclab.pl/art33717-6.html

if you want to compare to other video cards:

http://pclab.pl/art28888-55.html

both test are from the same computer.

Is in Polish but i'm think is not dificult to understand :)

For me is not a good deal, for 9 pounds more two weeks ago was GF 9600 GT which is much faster than this cards.
#37
these have RRP of $80
convert to pounds and add VAT tax and you get about £55 so prriced about right

good card for the price.

How does this Force3D 4670 card compare (cheaper at £54.99), also from ebuyer:

You do realise that graphics cards won't fit in the standard PCI-E slots don't you?
A normal PCI-E slot is much smaller than the 8x or 16x ones that graphics cards fit in!
(Perhaps I misunderstood what you are implying though!)
