ATI to stuff Radeon HD 4000 series with old RV610/RV630 parts

Posted on Friday, September 19 2008 @ 16:46:08 CEST by

Looks like ATI will exploit the success of the Radeon HD 4000 series to clear out its old excess inventory. FUD Zilla reports ATI's Catalyst 8.9 driver contains references to more than a dozen of rebranded Radeon HD 2400 (RV610) and Radeon HD 2600 (RV630) series GPUs.
ATI insisted that they won’t do this and even canceled some projects that we were aware of and all the sudden you see that these cards with new brands are inside of the driver. Now we are getting to the odd territories with the brand as ATI plans Radeon HD 4230, Radeon HD 4250, Radeon HD 4570, Radeon HD 4580, Radeon HD 4730 and Radeon HD 4750. We are not sure if this Radeon 4750 based on RV630 (formerly known as Radeon 3650) will be able to beat RV730 cards and Radeon 4650 and justify this 4750 name. Looks like a big mess to us.
Just when we thought it couldn't get any worse than NVIDIA's current GPU naming scheme ATI drops this bomb of cards:
"ATI Radeon HD 4230" = ati2mtag_RV610, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_95C5&SUBSYS_3002148C
"ATI Radeon HD 4230 " = ati2mtag_RV610, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_95C5&SUBSYS_3033148C
