Weak Performance Compared to Most Other Radeon HD 6570 Cards

Summary: I was very disappointed to find that this card has a 64-bit memory bus and not the 128-bit bus of most other Radeon HD 6570 cards sold on Amazon. As could be expected, this difference causes significantly degraded performance of this card compared to the others. My windows 7 WEI 2D Graphics score is only 4.2.
Summary: Rebuilt my wife's computer using this video card and other parts from Amazon. Everything works great and it is a great step up from her old computer. Not a power house GPU but she just plays on Facebook and doesn't need a really high end graphics card, just something solid.
Summary: I've used this for over a month and it installed and works great. I checked all video cards for performance and price and chose this one as best overall. I don't do gaming so I can't tell you if it would be good for that.
Summary: the was a purchase to replace a burnt out video card for my wife's pc.It did the job but the only thing i found strange was that the video drivers had to be downloaded from the internet which would be a problem if you had no access at the time of installation.
Summary: This was part of a barebones kit. If I had the choice, I would have left it out of the kit. It does what it was meant to do: render graphics. It did play Left 4 Dead 2 just fine on high graphics without any lag. Replaced it with a much more powerful card for heavier gaming. I'm planning on putting this in an older computer that I'll be using to connect to my TV for media streaming. HDMI port is a definite plus, but the 2GB version is the same price.
Summary: This card would be great but the 64 bit memory bandwidth just isn't enough to drive hardcore gaming. Wouldn't recommend for anyone that uses Graphics Applications or edits video. You really need, at the very least, 128 bit memory bandwidth.
Summary: When I watch YouTube (or leave open for a while) the entire video on the system seems to screw up. I have to reboot my system in order to correct it, even starting and stopping KDE doesn't help.
