After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    The testing setup used in our reviews features a higher end system that anyone might have however does not reflect the exact buying audience of all the graphic card owners systems. The reason for this is to minimize any kind of bottlenecks from the system as they can interfere with the performance of the graphic card.

    We are using the Radeon HD 4850 512MB of DDR3 RAM as the baseline card for our testing. The 4850's are a strong performing video card with a very good price range. It sits in the $130-$160 price range and is on the bottom of the high-end graphic cards segment. 

    With all that being said the Sapphire Radeon HD 4670 is being pitted against the Radeon HD 4850 to illustrate a bang for the buck between the two cards. Is the Sapphire Radeon HD 4670 strong enough to satisfy most thrifty gamers for under $100?

    Lets find out!
