Quiet but outdated 04/08/2014
1. Low profile
3. Old system supported (try the R7 240, it won't even boot)
1. Driver support is going out soon.
2. The performance is actually worse than Intel HD4400/4200 internal graphics accelerator.
To this day and time - early 2014, the use of this card is marginalized. I can think of someone wanting to pop this in a Sandy-bridge-era Pentium/Celeron board, but if you are building new HTPC/PCs, you better use the onboard graphics and invest in an i3 (Haswell) instead of splitting the capital between a CPU and a Video card. I have done benchmarking of this with an i3-4130. Believe it or not, the onboard graphics is around 50% faster than this card, while consuming less electricity and generates less heat in combination.
