Rating: 1/5Why are these so cheap, you may wonder...
This review is from: DIABLOTEK Radeon HD 5450 DirectX 11 VX5450 1GBK3-H 1GB 64-Bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
Pros: What I got was indeed a 5450, GPUZ confirmed this. It was the proper interface. PCI-e. It came (as ugly) as pictured. (maybe that one's a con)
That's all I can think of that was good.
Cons: Card is defective.
To clarify, mine posts, but...
Artifacts in windows loading screen. Red dots appear in picture like an added red hue (similar to a video cord not plugged in properly).
Clicking on any game lets you know that no, you didn't really just pop in a new GPU, there's really no direct3D device installed at all.
DXdiag shows a card is present, but no tests for Direct3D. Default windows driver. 12 series Catalyst drivers won't install properly. Neither will 11 series, and so on...
Other Thoughts: This isn't my first refurb/open-box trip around the block. This company though, I only touched because of the mesmerizing prices.
I was thinking I was rolling the dice on such a cheap card. $17 for a dx11 card, how could I go wrong? (it's for a PC with onboard video)
I don't think I'll touch this brand again, ever. If you are considering a DiabloTek as your primary GPU, you had better have a backup plan
...and it better not be a 2nd DiabloTek card.
