5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great for Windows 7, Linux and Hackintosh. Low power, I think it is 28 Watts. Runs cool and fan usually runs at slow speed.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I run this in a Lenovo M58p. With this video card, the computer normally runs 65-70 Watts and peaks at 95 Watts with heavy video applications.

4 out of 5 eggsThe best for a Low Profile application

Pros: IMHO PNY has come a long way. nVidia has partnered with them to build their Quadro FX line of Graphics cards and they are doing a great job. This board has a dual-link DVI port facilitating the output of true WQXGA resolution. Space on the reduced profile rear slot plate is limited so the second monitor port is a 'display port', roughly the size of an HDMI port. An 8" adapter cable to DVID is included. This card will process 3D and Stereo in Open GL as well as in DirectX.

Cons: There is no manual for this card included in the box as a hard copy or on the disc. I couldn't find it on the PNY site either.

Other Thoughts: The FX380LP is the only solution to run true stereo video output on a small chassis PC. I didn't think it would be able to handle the processing load but it seems to be able to handle our demonstration program requirements. The nVidia control panel gives you complete control of the GPU configuration globally and for any installed program on your computer.

As stated in another review, you need to go to nVidia for the latest drivers. This isn't a plus or minus since anyone that builds computers knows that you should go to the mfgs website for the latest releases of any driver.

3 out of 5 eggsthe jury's still out on this one

Pros: Low Profile: dual display and good for 2d/3d specs say. Make a portable desktop out of a slim case or a rack and use this card to run a dual display, this looks like your guy here. Just how much power will it really put out to get the job done?

Cons: The driver disk is very old and disc does not have Windows 7 drivers and the one I got from NewEGG was in an beatup generic PNY box that is clearly a generic box they use when they are just getting something out on the market. This says something about their planning however not about the card itself.
Always go to nVidia to get drivers... I hope the latest nVidia driver works by the way. Just seems like a last minute holiday push to get the card on the market.
Good luck.

Other Thoughts: After getting one of these, it meets my specs flawlessly but I have not pushed the GL in it yet. It say Quadro right...
I say get the card if you need a low profile banger.
