Summary: It's performance may not be optimal since I did not install all the software that comes with it. Rather, I let Windows Update find drivers online. I still noted a significant boost in performance.
Pros: Silent! Faster than my 2006 video card. In Windows 7, video ratings went from 3.9 to 4.4 (5.9 in one graphics category).
Cons: Still too hot to touch, but it runs for hours with no problems, unlike my initial copy of the board.
Cons: This card is a complete waste of money and time, this card is advertised as having dual graphics tech with select A-Series AMD APU's , i was much surprised to find out that this card actually slows the system down with very reduced fps in all games and extremely long load times. The gpu that come...
Summary: The software settings and driver selection should be better thought out - and tested against other software looking to see if the driver causes it to crash.
Pros: When it worked it worked well. It installed easily and loaded drivers and software.
Cons: Some of the software loaded was not what I selected. Some of the drivers caused other software to crash. And the heatsink got so hot you couldn't touch it. The computer then crashed - no BSOD, just dead! After cooling it would run again. Will see if a replacement board is any better and update th...
Summary: first time buying this brand, too bad never have a chance to see how good their cards are.
Pros: cheap, but not worth it.
Cons: first card arrived none functional. tried on two different cp. got RMA from newegg (great service as always). second replacement arrived two weeks later. looks like they sent me someone else return item to replace the dead one. security sticker on box looks like it had been opened already. inside...
Summary: Just not strong enough for my newer games anymore:(
Pros: This has been a great little graphics card. I have had absolutely no problems ever. I have had this card for two years now. I am upgrading and hope my new one is as nice and trouble free as this one has been. Thanks Asus and AMD!!!!!!!!!
Pros: I was sold on the idea for a GFX card that would be better than the stock on-board graphics. The perks were that it was cheap (everywhere kept trying to sell it as a "quiet" card---which it is.. it's fan-less). it's a powerful little card, definitely getting my money's worth out of it. Thank you....
Summary: Should have done more research and upgraded whole system to A8 series APU. Live and learn.
Pros: Quiet/Small form factor
Cons: Got this to beef up my HTPC. Now that we finally have good interwebs I can stream HD. Come to find out my HTPC can't handle the HD decoding and streaming was choppy. Thought this card would do the trick but I was let down... Gives a great picture off DVD and MP4's but still choppy when streaming....
Summary: Woks well with the class of less demanding games that I play, but I did have to add another small fan to keep it cool while it is working hard. Oh well... Failed completely 1 month and a week after I received it... It didn't seem very hot when it died, I guess it was infant morality.
