ATI sent a reference card with nothing else so I wonít talk about the bundle of this card. The HD 4350 is a low profile PCI Express 2.0 video card meaning that it will fit in almost any case and motherboard designed to have a PCI Express video card in it. The card has a tiny fan that covers the graphics chip. As the card doesnít have a lot of heat due to its small graphics chip, there isnít a heatsink on the card.

There are two 1024 Megabit memory chips on the front of the card next to the fan. Each chip is clocked at 500MHz, giving a total of 256MB of DDR2 memory rated at 2ns. The ATI reference card doesnít have a Crossfire bridge so to install more than a single card requires Hybrid Crossfire. The rear of the card has the circuitry for the card, the fan mounting bracket and the Part Number sticker.

IO


The IO on the card has a single Dual-Link DVI connector, a VGA connector and a TV-Out connector. There is a cable connecting the VGA to the PCB of the card as the card isnít tall enough to reach the VGA connector by itself. Two CRT monitors, a CRT and a LCD monitor, a TV and a LCD monitor is possible with the various connections on the IO.
