28 August 2009
  • Summary: Over the course of this review, my opinion of this card has gradually improved alongside the software and drivers. Initially I wasn't very impressed, but could see the potential.

  • Summary: Данная карта умеет выводить видео и аудио в HDMI, а также имеет низкопрофильный дизайн, что может оказаться очень полезным, если вы решите собирать HTPC в соответствующем корпусе. ASUS имеет очень широкое присутствие на компьютерном рынке.
