Club3D ships PCIe x1 HD 4350

Drinks ION's milkshake


A couple
of days ago Club3D started shipping a rather interesting low-profile Radeon HD 4350. We missed it, as we weren't paying close attention, but it turns out that this is a PCIe x1 card, which makes it nothing short of unique.

The card could make life a bit worse for Nvidia AIBs who have launched ION boards. It will allow nettop/HTPC enthusiasts to get discrete graphics at virtually the same cost as an ION board. Club3D's HD 4350 is reference clocked, so it packs an RV710 at 600MHz and it has 512MB of DDR2 memory clocked at 400MHz. Doesn't sound like much, but it's probably more than enough to outpace an ION.

The card is passively cooled and its power consumption is just 20W. It supports DirectX 10.1 and has HDMI, DVI and VGA outputs. The only downside is that it will take up two slots, so some caution is advised, as it won't fit in all ITX enclosures.

The price is the icing on the cake. At just under €40, it's cheap enough to be a viable alternative to ITX boards with ION graphics.

You can get it here.
