fan throttling works perfectly
most of the professional 4670 reviews are of this exact model
good number of accessories
first 4670 to hit the market
fairly quiet stock fan cooler
Low power requirements at 59 Watts, no extra power plug needed.
Twin DVI out work well in Ubuntu and Windows.
Very good value for a low to mid range machine.
Decent performance across a wide range of tasks.
more expensive than competing brands which are technically superior on paper
stock cooler isn't the greatest
includes electrolyte-based capacitors (not as long lasting as completely solid-state based cards)
Sapphire's version of the inexpensive budget 4670 card. Features the stock ATI reference cooler. For more information on the AMD/ATI Radeon HD 4670 see the main article.
Have had it running without any problems in both Ubuntu and Windows XP for about a year runing dual monitors at 1440 by 900. I rarely notice any noise from my box so I would have to say noise is not a problem. I feel I have a very good card that does what I need it to do. I feel I paid the right price at the time, although the current price for these is almost too low. People will think they are not very good. I am tempted to buy another.
Card is working nicely with an Accelero S1 on it running passively. 40-60C, stable, fast and rather quiet stock (silent now). First went with an Asus model which was technically superior but I had a horrible experience. Highly recommended card - great value.
