AMD Radeon HD 6670 Graphics Card Review

Rating: 9.0.

Last October, AMD launched the first cards in their Radeon HD 6000 series, the HD 6850 and HD 6870.  In the six months since then we’ve seen the release of the top end HD 6950, HD 6970 and HD 6990 cards which are targeted at serious gamers.  But until now, those looking for a budget offering have had to make do with the previous generation HD 5000 series.

Today we are going to look at the AMD Radeon HD 6670 graphics card which is designed for people who want to improve the media capabilities of their machine and perhaps engage in some casual gaming.  AMD have also included Eyefinity support on this card, meaning it is perfect for those who want a multi-screen setup.

One of the main selling points of these cards is their complete DirectX 11 support.  Sure the older HD 5000 series cards also supported DX11 but Intel’s Sandy Bridge HD graphics are still limited to DX10.1.  So we will be comparing the HD 6670 to Intel’s Sandy Bridge HD 2000 graphics in our tests as well as the more powerful Radeon HD 6790 card that Zardon reviewed a few weeks back.  We are also going to use a HIS Radeon 6790 IceQ Turbo for further comparisons.

    Seems like a decent card, but the competition I think is high, especially as sapphire have dropped the price of the 5 series cards recently.

  • Roger

    quite unexciting, and the passive card would be more appealing especially for this target demographic. Wonder if they will lower the clocks for the passive version however

  • Eric

    I agree, passive version would be a good option, media guys like myself dont want a fan, will keep my eyes posted to see any deals over coming months.

  • Thomas

    I am sorry, but there are just too many video cards out now, AMD need to start streamlining their range. a joe punter in the street hasnt a clue whats going on

  • Longjohn

    I agree, I follow the industry weekly and even I find it hard to follow. a guy walking into a store now wouldnt have a clue.

    These cards don’t really excite me. I think with the 5830 getting such a price drop it makes more sense to opt for it, even if it is last generation. its generally more capable, but then it was meant to be a 200 quid card.

    This would make a very good media card, but the price is too high, the 6450 makes more sense and will do to many people.

  • Earthworm Jim

    It looks ok, performance isn’t bad, but there are better alternatives in the market I think. £80-85 is a bit high priced

    This card is going to be a massive hit with people who got weak PSU’s. People keep saying that the GTS450 only costs $15 more, but if you are running on a weak PSU, you need to make an investment of $115 for the card + $50+ for a decent PSU, meaning you have to spend ~$165 for the upgrade. Buy this, pop it straight in, problem solved. You save ~40% and only give up ~20% performance. Sounds like a WIN.
