1 out of 5 eggsSave your money

Pros: Pretty good technical specs for a pci card.

Cons: I tried this card in 3 different systems all with different, but equally negative results. The first systems performance slowed dramatically, the second and third instantly blue screened.

Manufacturer Response:

I apologize for the inconvenience. If you contact me directly at hugo@powercolor.com I will be more than happy to help you troubleshoot, or assist you in getting a working replacement under warranty. Thanks.

1 out of 5 eggsPCI Card no video on dvd or live tv

Pros: It's "promise" to provide hdmi, dvi and vga through a pci slot. Unfortunately, it appears to be an empty promise.

Cons: Tried this pci card on 2 newer PCs. All windows updates done, but can only hear audio (no video) when watching dvds and live tv on BOTH pc's.

Manufacturer Response:

The issue is probably related to whatever video codec is being used (could be FLASH or something else). You should make sure your playback software is fully updated or check for any compatibility issues. How did videos playback through Youtube or through Windows Media Player? Please contact me at hugo@powercolor.com if you have any questions or would like further assistance in getting this issue resolved, thanks.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Product--Don't buy

Pros: No pros. terrible product

Cons: I bought two of these cards. One went into a windows machine. The other went into a linux box. Pretty close to the same time, the windows started blue screening. The linux box started slowing down dramatically. I pulled the cards out of both, both machines ran perfectly.

Manufacturer Response:

So you have 2 different cards that you assume both started failing at the same time. Either both of these cards were programmed to fail at the same time, or you just had some bad luck (assuming it is the cards that failed). Either way, we appreciate your feedback. If you got replacements and experience problems in the future then don't hesitate to contact me and I'll be more than happy to help you out. Hugo@powercolor.com, thanks.

3 out of 5 eggsDoes not accelerate video

Pros: Native HDMI with onboard audio. Energy-efficient (important for low-output power supplies).

Cons: Expensive (to be expected). Difficult driver install. No video acceleration support (despite the claim of UVD2 support on the box).

Other Thoughts: ATI has disabled DXVA (DirectX Video Acceleration) in the driver for PCI cards, due to their opinion that the PCI bus lacks the bandwidth necessary for certain HD codecs. Supposedly, through the use of the "DXVAChecker" software, this can be enabled, but I have not confirmed this.

For those wanting to use PCI-only machines for video playback, the best option is an 8400GS-based card, as that is the only chipset available in PCI that fully accelerates all three popular Blu-ray codecs. Furthermore, the driver install is quick and painless.

3 out of 5 eggsProblems with Flash

Pros: Works great with games like Civilization V.

Cons: It's fat, taking up the space of two slots.
Adobe Flash doesn't work, which means no YouTube support.

Other Thoughts: Youtube displays a blank green screen and Internet Explorer locks up (Not Responding). No suggested fixes on Adobe or Youtube fixed the issue. But there are plenty of people who experienced these problems. This is sad, because otherwise, it's a great product.

Manufacturer Response:

I can assure you that your Flash problems aren't because the card doesn't support Flash or Youtube. In fact, this card DOES support both Flash and Youtube, and the problems you're experiencing are probably related to old drivers, or lack of software updates to your machine. Feel free to email me at hugo@powercolor.com and I'll try and help you out. Thanks.

1 out of 5 eggsBlack screen with Media Center

Pros: - Passively cooled so it's perfectly quiet

Cons: - Drivers. I had to repeatedly retry the driver install. The first few times I got a blue screen.
- Wouldn't play WTV files recorded in Media Center

Other Thoughts: Maybe I just got a bad one, but I ended up RMA'ing this. All the video worked, but it wouldn't display a picture for any video recorded in Media Center. I replaced it with an NVidia GT430. It worked perfectly on the first try.

Manufacturer Response:

If your system has an integrated ATI CPU then that might be why. It's very important that all display drivers are uninstalled before trying to install a new graphics adapter.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks Mostly

Pros: Works perfectly under XP with HDMI sound.

Cons: This card had an IRQ conflict with the existing (defunct) on board video under windows 7.
Nether the Shuttle bios or mucking with win 7 resources could resolve this so I had to revert to XP.

Manufacturer Response:

some hardware is better about sharing resources than other. To solve this kind of problem I would recommend removing the PowerColor card, then going into the BIOS and temporarily disabling some peripherals (such as the NIC, sound card, etc), then going back and installing the PowerColor card. Once installed, go back into the BIOS and re-enable the devices you disabled and this usually fixes IRQ related problems. Thanks.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade, fantastic service

Pros: *Shipped same day, received the next - less than 24 hours from when I placed the order!
*Card fits perfectly in our old Shuttle, running XP on a Celeron 1.8 in our home theater system. Not much room in there!
*Easy setup, has been on most of the time for two days now with no problems. Seems more stable than the original on-board video.
*Great 1080p from the hdmi output, and silent operation is a must in our HT.

Cons: *Card is double width, overlaps the (unused) AGP slot in our Shuttle.

Other Thoughts: *Supplied video management software requires NET framework 2.0.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for intended use

Pros: HDMI audio over PCI, no more CPU based rendering freeing it up for actual work. HDMI audio does work in XP, I added this into a old 2Ghz "celery" system to use as a multimedia display with a 40" TV. Works well for that, and not much else.

Cons: Skype does not see the HDMI as a audio device in XP.

Other Thoughts: If you have issues with this card causing mouse jerkiness or other things slowing down it is due to it consuming all the available bandwidth on the PCI bus, not the card doing anything wrong. Try using a lower PCI slot, or manually configure the IRQ of the card to lower ( a higher IRQ number) priority. PCI bus only has 133MBps available shared bandwidth and this and any other advanced graphics processing unit will need alot of bandwidth to perform correctly. Do NOT buy this card if you want to play games. It is a add in fix for junk PC's to upgrade to larger displays for business use.


If you don't know what any of this means, just buy a new PC.
