Summary: This card was easily installed, and although the drivers took a few minutes to install (probably because I didn't read the instructions) everything seems to be working great. This doesn't have the power to handle large professional projects, it works great for low to medium usage of CS6 and Maya.
Summary: Have used this extensively on numerous builds for various AutoCAD users. It gets the job done. If you are needing to work with anything animated or very complicated, I'd dig deeper into your budget and go for a V4900 or a V7900.
Pros: Fast, capable, affordable, great drivers
Cons: Overpriced hardware when you dig out the specs
Summary: Works great on Linux with an AMD cpu/apu. Graphics gpu works along with apu when using an AMD driver. Very robust, low-cost graphics solution. I've been using this card for about a month now with an HP ZR30W 30" monitor. I'm quite pleased.
Summary: -This is a "renering" GPU and not a "playback" GPU (like gaming video cards) however this little humper has AWESOME playback due to the DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.2, Unified Shader Architecture, Full Shader Model 5.0, and most importantly Hardware acceleration of DirectX 11 & OpenGL 4.2. Seriously folks it renders WONDERfully AND plays top notch video games AS WELL!
Pros: -Comparing to a Galaxy nVidia GT 430 (that it replaced), this card cut render times from 15 minutes to 1.5 minutes! -Plays modern video games with ease (see other thoughts)
Cons: -The fan is small but does the job. However in a warmer environment like mine (Las Vegas) that little fan works pretty well However 3 months ago I had to RMA this GPU to AMD because the fan seemed to be stuck on high all the time even when using MSI Afterburner to control fan speed. Couldn't control it any longer. I had been expected to ship the defective product to Canada; the only receiving center for AMD's defects. $74 via UPS, $68 via DHL, FedEx $72, and $40 via U...
Pros: Cheap, and does the job. This size is very small and will fit in any computer. The older graphics cards are typically very large. I use autocad and it works great. I cant even hear the fan its so quiet. There are far more high-powered graphics card available but it all depends on what you do. If its 3D stuff this card is fine.
