Pulling the card out of the box, there isn't a whole lot to get excited about which doesn't come as any real surprise. We can see that Sapphire have used the standard small heatsink/fan combination that we're quite accustomed to seeing from them in the mid-range cards.
Just above the cooler we can see some of our DDR3 modules showing while we have the typical blue PCB design from Sapphire that helps it stand out from the competition.
Being a mid-range card, there is of course no external power needed, which means as far as stand out features go, when looking around the only thing we notice are the two Crossfire connectors located at the top of the card.
The I/O side of things offers us two Dual-Link DVI connectors with a standard TV-Out port sitting in the middle of them.
The HD 4670 from Sapphire comes in with a 750MHz core clock and the 512MB of GDDR3 memory at a very healthy 2000MHz DDR. The card of courses uses a PCI-E 2.0 interface, but like all other ones, is backwards compatible to 1.1.
Hidden beneath the core we have Direct X 10.1 support, 320 stream processors, a 128-bit memory interface, unified video decoding (UVD), Crossfire support and the ability to get 7.1 surround sound through the HDMI adapter.
