Images of upcoming low priced ATI video cards leaked
Currently there is a significant performance gap between AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards in virtually all price ranges. AMD still has many loyal followers even if it doesn’t offer the best performance available.
According to MadBoxPC, AMD has a trio of graphics cards slated for launch in January. These cards are the Radeon 3450 HD using the RV620 core with a 55nm fabrication process. The core clock will be 525MHz, the memory clock is 800MHz, and the card will use 256MB of DDR2 RAM. Outputs on the 3450 include VGA and DisplayPort and the card is PCI Express 2.0 compliant. The price is expected to be only $50 USD.
The next card is the Radeon 3470 HD, which also uses the RV620 core and is built using a 55nm process. The core clock is around 600MHz with a memory clock of 1000MHz. The cards memory will include 256MB to 512MB of GDDR3. Outputs include TV-Out, VGA, and DVI-I. The card is PCI Express 2.0 compliant as well. The price for the card is expected to be $60 USD.
The final card is the Radeon 3650 HD built on the RV635 core. Two versions of this card are going to be available. The XT version will have a core clock of 800MHz and a memory clock of 1000MHz. The Pro version will have a 600 MHz core speed and the same memory clock. Both versions will have 256MB to 512MB of GDDR3 with a 128-bit memory interface. This card is expected to retail for around $100 USD.
