New 4600 Series GPU's
AMD have today announced the new additions to their graphics card range, the Radeon HD 4600 series. There are currently two offerings, the HD 4650 and the HD 4670, both with 320 stream processing cores, based on AMD's 55nm process. The 4670 will feature 512MB of GDDR3 memory, with a 1Gb version scheduled for release later this month. The 4650 also features 512MB of memory, but AMD have used GDDR2.
Both new cards are DX10.1 compliant, and thanks to some new power management features and the 55nm process, the 4670 requires under 60w at full load and the 4650 under 50w. Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager of the AMD Graphics Products Group had the following to say about the new cards:
"The success of the ATI Radeon™ HD 4000 series validates that AMD’s shift away from the traditional means of producing large, hot, monolithic graphics chip continues to be a successful strategy AMD continues to execute against its timelines and deliver leading graphics performance at every price point"
