Pros: Most powerful single slot, low profile card there is. period. Can fit in just about any case. Full DX11 capabilities. Can crossfire without a bridge. Great for HTPC. Acceptable for gaming (major surprise in this category!)
Cons: Tends to run hot. About 175 F to 180 F. This is common among Radeon cards as a whole. Runs fine, but will alarm someone used to Nvidia cards. I wouldn't recommend overclocking though.
Other Thoughts: This isn't a top-of-the-line gaming card. If you want one of those you need a full size case and 2 open pci slots. However, running 2 of these in crossfire will turn an HTPC into a mid-level gaming rig! I mean 1080p, 40-60fps in modern 3D games!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great for most uses. Perfect for an HTPC, as no video card is needed. High clock speeds and easy to overclock. Can crossfire with a 6670 for added performance.
Cons: Not hyperthreaded, so it takes more of a hit during multitasking. Officially only supports 1866 RAM (not much of a con, as current RAM is only a little bit faster). Frame rates in games are a bit lacking in 1080p, although all effects will turn on.
Other Thoughts: I built a rig with this and a 6670 in a low profile case. I wanted the fastest thing that would fit in a box that size, but this would still only score a 2500 in 3dmark11. I disabled the onboard video and swapped out the 6670 for 2x 7750 low-pros and now I score about 5k on the same benchmark (and I'm quite satisfied).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lots. Legacy PCI slot, PCIE 1.0, 2 vid-card slots, all on a micro board. Love the XFast RAM utility and the AXTU program for the fan controller and overclocking in windows. I've used this to build a SCREAMING htpc. Basically a gaming rig in a low-pro micro case.
Cons: Even after updating bios to 1.20, RAID utility doesn't recognize my 2 Mushkin Chronos Deluxes. I was hoping to run those in RAID0 for maximum performance.
Other Thoughts: Currently crossfire-ing a 6670 low-pro card to my A10. Runs Diablo and similar games LIKE BUTTAH. I'm not really into FPS but I'm sure this will run one of those at least on Medium settings without difficulty.READ FULL REVIEW
