amazing how well it works! 08/22/2013
low power... no noise.
well rounded card at 25watts.
if you try, it will get toasty...
have used this card for 1 month, it truly is an amazing card... their is NOT a card that is better than this one for MYTHTV and deinterlacing OTA HDTV due to being able to use vdpau high quality.
in my search for this card (long story short) and buying a gt610, 2 gt630,gt 640, 2 gtx650... basically looking for the perfect silent card for myth tv, i have finally decided, NVIDIA has a winner here!.
after doing some measurements comparing the power of an intel g1610 on an asus h61, this card gt630(gk208 64 bits) idles at 6 watts, the gt610 8 watts, gt630(gk107 128 bits) 12 watts, gtx650 14watts.
do not let the "64 bits" fool/scare you into thinking is card is weak... IT IS NOT.
on LOW to MEDIUM settings without shadows this card will alow you to play gta4, saints row, tomb raider amongst others, even crysis! at playable frame rates.
will run Second Life at 24-30 FPS without shadows on a g1610.
if you try, it will get toasty... i mean that if you run the (Unreasonable) benchmarks tessmark or furmark, the card gets to 97c.
Under Reasonable use it gets to about 64c.
