Waste of money and time

  • Summary: I got this thing last week to replace a Radeon 9600. The only reason the old card was replaced was because the cooling fan on it got noisy. ATI makes its cards so that even something as small as a fan problem means replace the whole card. I got the x1550 and loaded the drivers. Everything looked normal until I tried to play mpeg2 videos. The video froze on the first frame, but the sound kept playing normally. I spent a week updating drivers, codecs settings, etc.

  • Excerpt: Great value for money graphics card. I am able to play games like Crysis, Call of Duty 4, FIFA 08, Command and Conquer Tiberian Wars with this card without any problems. The best thing about this card is it's price.

  • Excerpt: For value for money this is a fantastic Graphics card. I upgraded one machine that was running a 128meg card and the performance upgrade was so good I have done the same on my other two machines I own. The only problem that I could have had was that the 2nd and 3rd cards had Xp and Vista only drivers despite the box's claim that it contained Win2k and Xp drivers.
  • Pros: Good value
  • Cons: very sparse set up details in generic box

  • Excerpt: This Sapphire Radeon X1550 is a simple PCI Express graphics card with 512MB of DDR2 onboard memory. With a retail price of around $89, it is quite affordable. The GPU heat is quite low as many other entry-level graphic card. The 512MB of DDR2 memory does get warm to the touch, but nothing too alarming so it's okay to keep the memory naked. The fan is not making noise too. Conclusion : This card performed exactly as I expected.
  • Pros: Cheap, Good for multimedia PC .
  • Cons: Poor performance in high level gaming .

  • Excerpt: OK here we have a very Usefull and great value of Video Card. It is a 512 mb and suprisingly smaller then most video cards on the market. Yet its right up the with the best ones. I think if you over look this when you are thinking of buying a Video Card then you need your head examining. Not only does this Graphics/ Video offer high graphics for Games and Watching DVD Videos on one screen, but you can watch them on two screens now.
  • Pros: Great Value
  • Cons: Hard to find

  • Summary: Habe mir vor einiger Zeit diese Grafikkarte gekauft. Da ich nur eher ältere Games spiele, hab ich mich bewusst gegen eine teure Highendkarte entschieden ;). Sie benötigt einen PCI express Slot, aber ansonsten war der Einbau kein Problem. Die neuesten Treiber kann man direkt auf der ATI-Seite herunterladen. Die Grafikkarte hat zwei Ausgänge, so dass man seinen Monitor über DVI oder über VGA anschließen kann.
  • Pros: Preis / Leistung
  • Cons: keine Grafikkarte für neuere Spiele

Die preisgünstige Vista-Office-Karte

  • Summary: Es wurde mal wieder Zeit für eine neue Grafikkarte! Nicht zu teuer, aber auch nicht unbedingt ein No-Name-Produkt. Denn damit habe ich schlechte Erfahrungen gemacht in der Vergangenheit. ATI oder Geforce? Eine reine glaubensfrage denk ich. Letztendlich habe ich mich für ATI entschieden, da das meinen Geldbeutel nicht all zu sehr strapaziert, und ich den PC eh nicht mehr so häufig für Spiele verwende.
  • Pros: Preis, Vista - Kompatibel
  • Cons: Nicht für Extrem - Gameplay

  • Summary: Ola a todos, pues bueno, a mi punto de vista, esta grafica es bastante pobre. Suelen ser de las gamas que saca ati x vender algo a gente que no tiene ni idea de pcs. Estas graficas suelen venir introducidas en Pcs que ya vienen montados. La 1550 es una grafica bastante pobre, tanto en core como en memoria y a la hora de jugar y acer algun que otro detalle grafico rasparia muchisimo.
  • Pros: Ninguna
  • Cons: Bastante pobre
