this is an interesting card. Check out the cooler
on this XFX 4650. This thing is awesome. It’s got a big passive back aluminum,
on the top, and its got a big GPU Cooler,
it’s external, on the back, with a lot of fins.
It’s got 2 heat pipes in total, coming out through here, and then
an additional 2 heat pipes over here, kind of, I guess to transfer
more heat to the far side of the card. It’s completely passive,
there is no cooling on here. But if you wanted to, I’m pretty sure you
could throw a fan on there and cool that, But, I don’t think you’ll need it
cause this is a very nice and clean and cool running card.
A lot of great features. And, let’s talk about ’em. First of all, the 4650 is a very,
let’s say, low-mid range budget card. It plays all the like older games.
It’ll play like all your old Warcraft games, and your Starcrafts.
It’ll play all of your Call of Duty 4s. It will will play all the Steam games:
Team Fortress 2, and Counter-Strike: Source, and all that good stuff.
Absolutely no problem. It will decode Bluerays,
like its nobody’s business. It’s the perfect card
for your casual gamer. If you’re not a hardcore gamer,
this is the perfect card. It will let you play other games,
like Crisis, you’ll just have to play them
at lower settings. But besides that, if you don’t want
to spend a lot of money; you wanna get a card
that’s looks really cool; this might be it.
Check it out. Look at those Red DVI Ports.
That’s cool. I mean, I can’t say anything bad about that.
It looks very very cool. Very cool CPU cooler and it actually is still a single slot
solution, so if you wanted to run a single slot, only a small portion of it
is gonna actually go into the 2nd slot. That means that you still have
a 2nd peripheral card underneath, if that’s the case, and that’s what
you need, it won’t be a problem. PCI Express 2.0, x16 obviously.
It will work on PCI Express, 2.0 x8, or just a regular PCI Express x16, it’s back
where it’s compatible. Not a problem. Dual-Link DVIs are gonna do
2560 x 1600 each, utilizing twin
400 MHz Ram Decks. You also get included in the Cable,
a S-Video cable, so if you wanna go S-Video to your TV,
right there, you can do that. It will actually do some decent
definition, 480p, which is nice. Also included in the box, in case you have
an older monitor, is a DVI to VGA dongle. And, let’s talk a little bit
about these SPECS. This is a 600 MHz Core,
on here, for the GPU. It’s got 320 shaders
at 600 MHz, as well. As you know, the ATI stuff
has always matched up. The cord of the shaders
are almost always matched up. So, if it’s running at 600 MHz on the Core,
the shaders, or the ALUs, or the Stream Processors,
or whatever you wanna call them, are gonna also be at 600. Now, this is a 1 GB Version. As you can see, over here on the box,
it does say it here somewhere. There you go.
1 GB of GDDR2 Memory, right there. And that is 1000 MHz effective DDR2,
so that’s pretty quick for some DDR2 Memory. 128-bit Memory Interface.
For that, there’s 32 Text Ring Units, and there’s 8 Raster Operators
on this card. It is very tough to balance. So, really good stuff.
Besides that, you’re gonna get the Avivo HD Processing.
You combine that with HDMI Support and UVD, which is a Unified Video Decoder,
and you combine that with HDCP, and that means you can pretty much get any
high depth video content and stream it to any type of Monitor, TV,
or whatever, as long as it’s HDCP certified, you’re not gonna have any problem playing
Bluerays and HD DVDs or DRM, non DRM free high depth content
that you download off the Web. Another thing that’s really cool about this
is that is required a very small power supply You only need about a 400 watt,
and that’s what XFS recommends, which, you might be able to undercut that a little
bit, maybe with 350 or 375 it will work. It does not take a lot of amperage
on a 12 volt rail, and as far as power goes,
this is really great. Take a look at this.
Yeah. See it? See it?
See it? Oh, there it is.
Oh, no, wait, where is it? Oh, it doesn’t exists.
This card doesn’t even need it. That’s how cool this is. You don’t need a 6-pin PCI Express Connector
You don’t need an 8-pin PCI Connector. You don’t need combinations of both,
and either or. You just pop it in,
and it will run. So,
that’s really good. Also, this is a .1 Card,
that’s what I call them. Direct X 10.1, Shader Model 4.1,
OpenGL 2.1, all the latest and greatest. It does support all of those.
And it does support CrossFire X, ad you can see right here,
you will be able to do CrossFire, no problem. So,
that’s very cool. And just so you know
what’s in the box. Hang on let me try
to balance it one more time. Damn,
I’m getting good at this. Installation guide,
a graphics card driver disk, the S-Video cable,
the VGA/DVI dongle adapter, the quick start guide, if you don’t have
patience to read the regular instructions. And, the ‘do not disturb, I’m gaming’
hanger for your door. Get out of here Mom. Get out Mom,
I’m playing. And I don’t even know what this is.
But this is your support information on the back, with your
user name and your password. Really,
really good stuff. And my favorite part of this whole thing.
This thing has got a lifetime warranty, so if it ever breaks,
you’re covered. Don’t worry about it. 4650 ATI from XFS.
They don’t just do InVideo nowadays, They’re also doing
ATI. They didn’t keep it real.
They sold out, but whatever. They make an awesome card,
and this think looks really sweet, with Red DVI Ports,
and that really cool cooler. So, it’s an awesome card.
Go ahead and pick it up. If you have any questions on it,
email me, and I’ll see you guys
next time. For more information on the
