ATI Radeon HD 4600


$60.00 Released October, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Good video and interface. Bus powered - no additional power connection from the power supply required. Over 30fps performance on most games with medium to low settings.

The Cons:The fans on this and many other ATI cards do not last long and either burn up or start making bad noises. Passively cooled versions available for HTPC builds and silence enthusiasts. No DirectX 11 support - DX 10.1 only.

The ATI Radeon HD 4600 is a mid-range series of graphics cards, designed to deliver good gaming performance at a sub-$100 price point. The series includes three models, the 600MHz HD 4650 with 512 MB GDDR2, and the 750MHz HD 4670 with either 512 MB or 1 GB GDDR3 memory.
