honestly whats the point? it would seem better cards can be had for the same price if not less
well the only thing i can think of, hd audio bit streaming...this is one of the cheapest ways to add it to a system...
beyond that, i haven't a clue
hehe my 8600m gt ddr2 OCed gets more 3d05 points
HDCP video too, but big whoop. The price/perf is at the bottom of the barrel.
Great. My 2 generations older HD3870 chews up your 8600GT. Whats the point?
I think these cards will do pretty fine in a system that does not require 3D applications.
it's sad that my 2year old notebook's gfx beats a dx11 desktop card
It's a card not for the desktop and not for gaming- it is for HTPC's (as the reviewer did a convoluted attempt at highlighting- gaming bench's are irrelevant). And to put out a low watt, low heat, low profile card that does TrueHD, DTS Master at 1080p is remarkable. And that for $49 a pop is even more amazing.
