I think these are all good arguments. My problem is the price of many of these low end cards. You could buy a card on the lower end of a new generation for say, $80.00 to $100.00. Or you could go with a mid range card from the last generation or even older than that. For instance: I could buy an AMD HD 7750 for $109.00. Not a very powerful card. Or I could buy an AMD HD 6790 for $119.00. Yes it's last gen but it's only $10.00 more and is still significantly more powerful. It really boils down to getting the most bang for your buck.

I'm willing to bet these will be good for people who have older computers, as many oem computers have a decent processor but terrible graphics, like a geforce 6100. You also wouldn't have to put in a new psu.
Furthermore, many people are happy if they can sustain ~20fps on minimal settings.

the 440 (fine, nvidia, 630) is actully 6750 level. so it could at a low price be an ok choice for a very causel gamer on a budget. im planning on getting a 440 actully soon, the 2gb version to be used to help run the extra guis of my vms and to help fold. them little things can pull about 5-7k

I honestly don't get when Nvidia and AMD sell these extremely low end graphics cards. I understand that they want to appeal to the whole audience but, if you really care about graphics, your going to spend $150.00 or more on a real gaming graphics card. Otherwise your going to use integrated graphics. I think it's just a waist of time.

there will always be a market for low-end cards, but the markets shrinking

There is also hardware failure. there has been a number of times that the onboard gpu failed on mother boards and i have to replace with an expansion card, or my client brings me a pc that the d-sub is broken completely off, find it a lot easier to just replace it than to try to solder a new one on.

I recently had to replace an ancient video card in one of my HTPCs. Fortunately had a low-end passive ATI 4350 or something lying around. Great for HTPCs, where I really don't want to spend more than 20-30$ on a video card, but I need hardware decoding of x264 and HDMI output.

Light gaming, media center, dedicated graphics memory (integrated uses system memory), HDMI, Dual monitors, TV Output, smoother performance for a non gamer, etc. There are many reasons. I've built budget systems that came with integrated graphics, but wanted the dedicated memory without spending a 150. There will always be a market for low end graphics. In my experience, most low end graphics solutions generally beat integrated any day. My old Radeon 3450 destroyed the integrated graphics my board had.

There are some places where these make sense. If you want to add multiple displays to your setup for non graphics intensive applications a cheap add in card is a good way to go.

Well if that is the case then why care if these cards are re-branded? At least is still a better product than previous generations. Is not like if the 500 series technology is obsolete. Unless of course your paying more for name change.

You unify your product line. It's easier for consumers to denote where performance is by the name of the product (in most cases). 620 is "better" than 610. That's easy to see.

You give relevancy to your product. "Oh, this one is a 600 series part so that must mean it has a new design". Of course it doesn't always have the new design, but it appears that way.

Sometimes they make minor hardware adjustments that would warrant renaming the products. Tweaked PCB layouts, or just simple changes to the clocks.
