No 4k Support
This review is from: MSI R5 230 2GD3H LP Radeon R5 230 2GB 64-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Low Profile Video Card
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.
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.
