4 out of 5 eggsReally Good GPU For The Price

Pros: I just got this today and it has much more power then I needed. I have tried playing some games on this and it is just like my gtx 760. I can visually see no difference between them even on high settings.

Cons: The only thing I do not like about this is that there is no fan on it to keep it cool but the heat sink does a lot on this one.

3 out of 5 eggsWas highly disappointed

Pros: The card looks well built.


Good video quality.

Cons: This card can't support 3 displays like it says on AMD's website.

Other Thoughts: I have never bought something that did not have reviews before. I thought AMD says it can do 3 monitors so I went for it. Well guess what it can't! I was highly disappointed. The only reason this gets 3 is because other than only supporting 2 monitors its a good card. Hard to say if I will order MSI again this is the 2nd MSI card I have had and both have been a big disappointment to me. Good quality but lacking in the "modern" part. I thought by now 3 monitors on all new Video cards would be standard.

3 out of 5 eggsworks... but.

Pros: Cheap, silent, low profile.

Cons: DDR3. Had an issue when initially configuring using an ASUS monitor that had only HDMI in. This card somehow botches the resolution recognition and was only utilizing a small square on the screen (native resolution is 1920x1080). Unfathomably I had to install the whole Catalyst control center suite and then set the scaling to overscan. Works fine now but totally unacceptable OOB experience.

2 out of 5 eggsNo 4k Support

Pros: Cheap, Doesn't run hot. It works for 1080 screens. Running two screens off of this and two off of my intel graphics doing dual GPU works pretty good.

Cons: Does not support 4k, MSI and AMD both list this GPU as supporting 4k on their websites. I spent a few days trying to get it to work with my seiki 39" 4k HDMI 1.4 screen and it wouldn't work at all. I tested the screen and cable with my Haswell 4400 graphics and it all worked, but nothing with this R5 230.

Graphics don't install as R5 230, this card isn't even really listed on AMD's graphics website. Device Manager recognizes it as a Radeon HD 6450.

Other Thoughts: This card would have been everything I needed if it would have actually pushed 4k resolution like the manufacturers website states. If you just want to run multiple(4) 1080p monitors for coding/browsing then it works excellent. If you want to game/encode then I suggest getting Lucid's Virtu but that will cost you at least $40 for the product licence.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
Based on the symptom you provided since many reasons can cause the situation like this, we suggest you verify the follow troubleshooting tips out first;
1. Only the HDMI port on this card support 4K, can you verify with different cable and adapter.
2. Please kindly contact our support team for further instructions/troubleshooting at 626-271-1004 (M to F, 6am to 6pm Pacific Time).

Best Regards,
MSI Review Team |
