The HD 4670ís intended competition at this price point is the GeForce 9500GT. Unfortunately, I donít have a 9500GT to test it against. Of course with the price drops of the last few months intended competition and actual price competition is not what ATI expected it to be. ATI has not released drivers for the HD 4670 and provided drivers to test the card with.
