This review is from: AMD FirePro 2270 100-505836 512MB DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x1 Low Profile Workstation Video Card
Pros: Bought this Card over 2 years ago when I bought a SuperMicro Barebones kit from NewEgg that had no PCI x16 slots to drive two monitors. Even though it only has 512MB of DDR3 it is capable of driving two widescreen monitors. I have a Calibrated NEC P221W 22" Display running at 1680x1050 and an ASUS ProArt 24" running at 1920x1200. This card was designed to add additional Monitors to CAD or Medical Imaging workstations and while is not suitable for anything but really lightweight gaming it easily handles Photoshop CS, InDesign, and Premiere as well as 1080p playback. It is passively cooled so the system is quiter only consuming 15W for the 512MB version and 17W for the 1GB model.
Cons: After 2 1/2 years one of the pegs holding the HeatSink snapped and the HeatSink has warped on one side almost touching an adjacent card. I would have been really pi**ed-off if this had shorted out my SAS controller which was beside it but noticed it in time and have glued a small piece of cardstock where it might hit should it warp further. The heatsink is likely undersized as the SuperMicro case is not stuffed full and has good airflow as I have not gotten any Thermal Alarms from the on-board sensors.
Other Thoughts: Am contacting AMD as there is a three year warranty on this unit.
