AMD Radeon HD 6670 Video Card Review

Introduction

The Radeon HD 6570 and Radeon HD 6670 were originally released at the beginning of the year as OEM products, i.e. available only for computer manufacturers. Last week, AMD released them on the retail market, with a suggested price of USD 80 and USD 100, respectively.

The USD 100 price point of the Radeon HD 6670 puts it between the GeForce GT 440 (USD 70 to USD 80) and the GeForce GTS 450 (USD 115). Since the Radeon HD 6570 is the video card competing directly with the GeForce GT 440, we will be comparing the Radeon HD 6670 to the GeForce GTS 450. We also added a Radeon HD 5670 to our comparison. Even though this video card is, today, in a different price range (USD 70), it is always good to see the performance improvement obtained by a new graphics chip compared to its counterpart from the previous generation.

In the table below we compare the main specs of the video cards included in our review. They are all DirectX 11 parts. The prices listed below do not include rebates. Prices were researched at Newegg.com on the day we published this review.
