4 out of 5 eggsLast gasp for AGP P4 3.2GHz

Pros: 1 simple Molex power connection.

Big quiet fan, normal card length doesn't bump into anything.

Cons: None so far with the card.

Blah, blah, blah AGP.

Other Thoughts: Upgrade from my X1950 Pro.

Keeping this rig alive as long as possible with XP 32bit and still play left 4 dead 2 at a decent frame rate.

Works with driver off disk, no problem but not with ATI's AGP hotfix 9.11 XP 32bit.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for AGP Boards

Pros: Good for older PCs. Quiet fan. 1GB GDDR3. 6.7 score for Windows Experience Index.

Cons: 128bit memory bus. Drivers for Win7 from Powercolor's website don't have overdrive tab for Overclocking. GPU client for Folding@Home does not support the drivers for this card.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from an X1950 Pro. Like most people using AGP boards, my CPU is the bottleneck now for most newer games. Was hoping for some overclocking options with this card.

4 out of 5 eggsSo Far So Good

Pros: I was a little apprehensive about purchasing this video card, but there were not many cards left that still used the AGP slot and had on board memory greater that 512MB. I did not notice a significant difference is graphics speed from my previous card, but this card is largely for my daughters' computer. They are not heavy gamers.

It appears to work well with Windows XP and the 400W supply on an ASUS mother board and cabinet.

Cons: None that I could see so far.

Other Thoughts: It was worth the price and saved me upgrading the motherboard/PC for now.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Overclockable, AGP video card

Pros: Very fast AGP video card! Runs cool and quiet (about 51 degrees during gaming).

Cons: XP driver on the CD works, but yields a "No compatible hardware found" and has to be forced on. It is easier to get the latest driver from the ATI site where the Hotfix is included in the latest Catalyst drivers. For XP, make sure you get the "Radeon HD 4000 Series AGP" driver.

Other Thoughts: If you want to overclock the card, get a copy of MSI Afterburner 1.4.0 or later. To unlock the overclocking, you need to edit the “MSIAfterburner.cfg” file and change the parameter of “EnableUnofficialOverclocking” from “0” to “1”. I was able to bump the core clock up to 900 MHz and the Mem clock up to 1000 MHz and still be completely stable.

4 out of 5 eggsWhat's All The Fuss?

Pros: Moving from X1950GT to this card, CPU utilization for Blu-rays dropped from ~90% to ~10% or lower played in PDVD 8 (after driver update - see below). The card installed easily with included CD. Improved 3DMark06 from about 4700 to over 6800 (yeah, the CPU, but wth...). With the cover off, don't even hear the cooling fan. Like that the HDMI audio installs w/ the ATi software, unlike how it does for my old X2600XT.

Cons: With the drivers (9-05?) on CD, PDVD 8 (and 7) blue screened me as soon as hardware acceleration was accessed. Updating to the 9-10 drivers (necessarily followed by the 9-10 AGP hotfix - yikes!) from the AMD site fixed PDVD 8 - but not 7. I find blue screens irritating, even on programs I don't absolutely need, hence minus one egg. Time to whine to AMD...

Other Thoughts: Motherboard: Gigabyte 8I865GME-775-RH R2.0 AGP (1066 MHz FSB max)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 2000 MHz OC@2405.97 MHz
RAM: 2x 512MB Corsair VS512MB400 DDR-SDRAM PC-3200 @PC-3100 Dual Channel
Video Card: POWERCOLOR AG4670 1GBK3-P Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 AGP 8X HDCP Ready
OS: Windows XP Professional SP3

FWIW, I bought the HIS DVI to HDMI adapter for HD4K Series cards (Item#:N82E16814999010), since I knew this card didn't come with one. Can't dock an egg for it not being included, but the extra expense is irritating.

Oh - I got this card Open Box, so I have to say a big THANKS! to the person who couldn't get it to work in *their* system. More than saved enough for the adapter, and a spindle of Verbatim DVD-Rs. Heh..

1 out of 5 eggsprobably should have bought the 3850

Pros: Fast card, lower power consumption, on paper should be better than the HD 3850. Beats the 3850 in 3dmark06 tests (but not 3dmark03??) Quiet.

Cons: Drivers!!

In actual gameplay the 3850 appears to outperform this card. Costs more than pci-e counterpart.

Other Thoughts: I am running 3 p4 3.0+ AGP systems. I have 2 hd 3850 (sapphire) and this card. All the systems are pretty much the same congifuration (plus i have swapped out the cards to be sure) The 4670 has many weird glitches withthe drivers (like delayed typing in iexplorer or choppy window dragging) Also PowerColor Drivers are a few versions behind other manufacturers. I took chance on this card because of manufacturer's responses here, they seemed like good customer supoport, but I emailed Hugo a week ago, nothing.... Maybe this review will get response. Still have 1 week to send back to newegg. Will update if I ever hear from Powercolor.

Manufacturer Response:

I'm not exactly sure what happened to the e-mail, but feel free to e-mail me again and I'll be sure to try and help you get this resolved. The 4670 and 3850 should be very close in performance, but as far as stability then the 4670 wins (at least in my eyes and experience). The drivers on our site aren't always updated to the latest versions, but you can only find the newest ones at www.ati.com.

1 out of 5 eggsNF8-V Motherboard Issue

Pros: Very fast card for an AGP system.

Cons: After I uninstalled my nvidia display driver and had the ATI driver installed it just made my computer terribly slow. Reinstalled the OS fresh and had the same problem. I had to RMA it for a refund.

Motherboard: Abit NF8-V Motherboard
Memory: 2 Gigs DDR PC 3200
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3400+
Power Supply: 431 W
Operating System: Windows XP Professional 32 bit

Other Thoughts: To be honest it was silly of me to buy this card to begin with since my CPU would just bottleneck it before I could get it's true potential. I just liked the idea of it. I'll just throw down 600 and build a PCI-E 2.0 x16 machine I suppose.

Manufacturer Response:

There is various options in the BIOS that could certainly fix the types of problems you were experiencing with this card, especially with older Nforce chipsets. With AGP cards, it's always a good idea to make sure you have the latest BIOS installed on your motherboard. I see that you may have already returned this card, but if you haven't, feel free to contact me directly and I'll try to help you get this resolved. My e-mail is hugo@powercolor.com, and be sure to reference this review.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: This card absolutely pushes the ability of my AGP 8x PRO slot to its limit! Drivers work both on Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows 7 Pro (not beta). Gives the system a Windows Experience Index of 6.7 in both Desktop and Gaming Graphics (out of 7.9). Plays all games out there, including COD4, CODWAW, FSX, and BF2142 just to name a few that i have tried.

Cons: Was a bit tricky for the drivers to get installed on Win7 Pro, although that was not the card's fault.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to have a free power connector for this card, I realize that most AGP card motherboards may not have one free.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic upgrade for AGP based systems

Pros: 1. Fantastic upgrade option for AGP based systems.
2. Relatively low power supply requirement.
3. Runs cool.

Cons: 1. Must use driver from Powercolor website, latest ATI drivers aren't compatible.
2. Higher cost than PCI-E version.

Other Thoughts: I built my 939/AMD-based computer system in July 2004.
The original video card was a Radeon 9800. The 3dmark06 score was about 700. I upgraded to an NVIDIA Geforce 7600GT in February 2007 and the 3dmark06 score increased to about 3500. Using the Powercolor Radeon HD4670, the 3dmark06 score increased to about 8000.

I'm still playing the same games over this period (Half Life 2, Counterstrike Source, Doom 3, Quake 4, IL-2, Guild Wars). While the games were certainly playable using the Radeon 9800, that was at 800x600 or 1024x768.

With the addition of the Powercolor Radeon HD4670, I'm now at 1920x1200 on a 26" widescreen. Frame rates on the above games average above 60 fps at that resolution; achieving this was the aim of my upgrade. No video card in existence could have achieved this in 2004 when I built the system.

My guess would be that newer games (e.g., Crysis) would be bottlenecked by the CPU, though performance might be adequate at lower resolutions.

1 out of 5 eggssad news

Pros: lets see almost no pros other than plays counter strike 1.6 decently pretty much it. and plays little kid games. this is a total junk.

Cons: i have search for months on how to overlock agp 4670 and theres absoloutely no way to overclock it. buying this is a complete waste of money. your best of with pcie (spend that extra money its worth it trust me)

Other Thoughts: if you want a real video card get a pcie and something that is overclockable even if you dont like overclocking a tiny bit. ... i repeat dont buy this!...

my pc: 2.4ghz, 4gb ram, dvd/cd burner/dvdplayer/ 100gb hdd/4670 agp (total junk)/ 420watt supply...

Manufacturer Response:

The AG4670 has been one of our more successful AGP cards to date, what kind of problems are you having exactly? The overclocking issue is most likely a driver problem, or a utility problem. The card is definitely not locked from being overclocked so I can't help but wonder something else is going on. Feel free to contact me directly and I'll personally assist you with any problems you may be having with this video card. My e-mail is hugo@powercolor.com, and please be sure to reference this review.
