Hi
I have got a Radeon R5 340 without any video connectors. It is abnormaly short, and has fewer PCIE-pins than usual. Here is a link, where you can see, what it looks like on the backside:

I have a I3 7100 running and when I check for the gpu, it just shows me the Intel HD 630.

So why is this graphics card inside there? Can I somehow activate this gpu? Does this kind of graphics card have a special name?

Specs say 1 single GPU card / integrated GPU
Somewhere in your PC is the software that controls the Graphics Output

Sorry i must larf:laugh::roll:
It's likely a mining card never intended to display video because alI it was going to do is mine
My 1st thought was Headless Card = mining then i thought Spec's wont mine Turds from an A**hole

Must be a form of hi-bred Graphics Display as found on some Laptop's

its not a mining card, what you have is a AMD Hainan card, what that means is that specific chip only works with an intel/amd igp and can also be crossfired with an amd gpu of the same gen.. essentially its a co-gpu.

I got this PC in second hand, so I formatted everthing and installed windows. I think it should have looked up all components and searched for drivers, but why doesn't it work then? Any idea, where I can get those drivers?

Looks like it just needed some time. Just rebooted after I put the gpu in and out and suddenly I have both gpus showing up. Without doing anything.
Thank you anyway, guys!
