Conclusion:

The MSI HD 4670 placed exactly where I expected it to in our gambit of benchmarks. Performance was smooth in all of our test games at lower settings and the 4670 managed to maintain playability at some of the higher settings. By no stretch of the imagination is the HD 4670 a multi-media monster. However, it still maintains a good bang-for-the-buck factor by providing enough power for light gaming and playing high definition video. Since the 4670 requires no additional power supply and provided smooth video playback it would work perfectly in a HTPC.

The ability to siginificantly overclock the GPU and memory was an additional bonus. In the end, the 4670 hit 849MHz on the core which is very impressive for a $80 video card. Thermal control was impressive as well as idle temperatures were in the low 30s. I was dissapointed by the bundle accessories though. The MSI HD 4670 came only with an HDMI adapter instead of the typical array of S-Video or HDTV adapters I'm used to seeing. The card's two DVI out ports will function well for most as many monitors still have DVI connections.

In the end the HD 4670 is a good performer and is perfect for a casual gamer or HD video enthusiast.

 

Pros:

  • Great cooling
  • Good overclockability
  • Low price
  • Energy efficient

 

Cons:

  • Few bundled accessories
