Product Description

Loaded with the latest features, ATI RadeonTM HD 4600 Series graphics cards deliver a level of gaming performance previously only found in high-end graphics cards. Redefine the way you play HD games and enjoy unprecedented levels of graphics realism powered by 320 stream processing units, up to 512MB of memory and support for Microsoft DirectX 10.1 games. Upgrade your graphics card and watch Blu-ray movies and play HD content with incredible visual fidelity1. These graphics cards do it all with break-through energy efficiency, eliminating the need for an external power connection and making them easy to install. With its 92mm cooling fan, this soon to be part of the Professional Cool Solution (PCS) product line, increases air flow at a lower fan speed that easily dissipates heat from an optimized heat sink which fully covers the PWM and memory. The special fan design avoids direct contact with high temperatures emanating from the heat sink, extending the life cycle of the cooling fan. Keeping fan noise at a minimum, the fan speed automatically adjusts while it’s under idle, in 2D or 3D mode—helping to deliver the perfect heat dissipation, allowing a better user experience.

Customer Reviews

To the point: Without the DDR3 memory, it's not the same card.
Brighton Funny
Even with the fan it does fit in a single slot, but as mentioned above, the power connector is likely to interfere with one of your PCI slots.

The drivers issued on the disk are out of date and do not work on XP SP3.

Great Performance...
This card has breathed new life into my aging PC. I installed this in a PC with a Socket 754 Sempron64 3100+ CPU. Running Win XP Pro with 1.5GB RAM. Replaced an NVidia 6200. This PC is used as an HTPC and is connected to a projection TV via Component Video. I do not play any games on it, just run SageTV software with multiple TV capture devices. My old video card was unable to playback 1080i MPEG-2 or any HD-h.264 videos. This Diamond ATI Radeon HD4650 AGP card plays everything flawlessly (provided I am using codecs that are able to use hardware acceleration) with either Overlay mode or VMR-9 Renderless (Full Screen Exclusive). Regular VMR-9 works when playing back in windowed mode, but there is some stuttering during full-screen playback of HD MPEG-2 content with plain VMR-9.

Using the ATI MPEG codec with DXVA hardware acceleration to play back MPEG-2 content full-screen on a 1080i TV, CPU usage maxes out at about 45% for 1080i content, 40% for 720p, and 20% for 480i. Using the MPC-HC h.264 codec to play a 720p file required only about 15% CPU. I am still unable to watch Hulu content at full screen, but this is because there are currently no hardware accelerated codecs for playing back FLASH content, and my Sempron 3100 just doesn't have enough power to handle it.

Questionable Specs...
The picture shown on the Amazon page is still incorrect. The installation guide has a diagram that looks like the picture on Amazon's website, but it's wrong too. The card has 2 DVI connectors and one round S-Video connector. The package includes 1 DVI to VGA adapter, 1 DVI to HDMI adapter, 1, S-Video to Composite adapter, and 1 S-Video to Component (HDTV) adapter. The heat-sink and fan look different too. Oh, and the PCB is green, not red.

Be careful before you buy this card... Until a few days ago, this video card was listed by Amazon as having DDR3 memory.

Inexplicably, this video card is now shown as being equipped with the very different "DDR2" memory (a much slower variety of memory chip). This is after this product was temporarily unavailable for a few days through Amazon (the page was red flagged by Amazon as "Under review" for a few days, and then became available again with the memory spec quietly changed).

What's going on? All the reviews of this card, the product's .pdf sheet, and even Diamond's own Web site and product literature note that this is a DDR3 card. It's one of the chief reasons this card's performance has been so well-reviewed - particularly for users with older processors (and since this is an AGP card, that will apply to most people interested in this item). To the point: Without the DDR3 memory, it's not the same card. How can it be sold here under the identical model number (Diamond Model #4650512A)? It is very misleading.

UPDATE: There are multiple user complaints over at another popular electronics retailer (with the initials NE), where customers note they ordered this card expecting DDR3 memory (as of this writing, it's still listed as having DDR3 over there), and received DDR2 instead. I contacted Diamond directly asking what's going on - as I mentioned, Diamond's own Web site lists this model as having DDR3 memory - and have yet to receive any response (it's been 6 days so far). Buyer beware.

Card works great. It lets you make the most of your older AGP slot motherboards. The drawbacks are the installation instructions are poor and I had a hard time installing the drivers to make it work. The card also takes up a lot of space and the cooling fan sticks down so far as to make the adjacent PCI slot unusable. The specs list a minimum 300W power supply needed to run this card. I'm currently running it from a 250W supply without any trouble, but I don't have a lot of other loads on my system.

Installed this morning:

Hardware installation flawless -

burning the card in all day with no issues. i have a 280w power supply and is holding up just fine. my card came with a cable for the power between the graphics board and the power supply. i just connected the supplied power cable to the card and the P2 connector.

Software installation flawless -

inserted cd after boot up and followed the instructions in the manual(quickstartguide) and the drivers loaded just fine, then i restarted and all is well.

the only prob i had was that someone forgot to connect the keyboard before booting back up ??????

played some new games(CoD WW) without lag or any other issues.

will update...

- - - UPDATED - - - 9:16 PM 4/8/2010 - - - UPDATED - - -

It's been almost 3 months and all is still well with no issues.
All hardware and software behaving nominal.

Just finished fine tuning/tweaking my new HP 2509m 25" Diagonal Full HD Widescreen LCD Monitor and this agp card
is up to 1920 x 1080 pixels in true HD. I am still using my dual-link DVI-D cables since i already have my sound configured separately.no need for hdmi cables yet, and i am liking this new monitor more and more the further i go with it. Seems to be a valued, quality monitor from HP.
