Pros: physical size is small could be a plus in some builds
Cons: #1 this card shows no improvement in video quality when coupled with a8-3570, and asrock extreme board. getting a 6.7 windows score, when both linked.. and unlinked
#2 and here is the big one. This card gets outperformed by a HIS 6570, which is $15 dollars cheaper, the HIS 6570 received a 6.9
#3 overclocking this card thru amd overdrive is more limited than the HIS, card begins to artifact with just small oc. 5mhz on the GPU clock, and 160mhz on the memory clock.. The HIS 6570 maxes out the available increase in overdrive, getting slower gpu clock speeds, but almost 200mhz faster memory clock.
Other Thoughts: Lucky for me I was doing two custom builds, and the xfx could go into the cheaper of the two systems.
So my take on this is just stay away from this card. Get the HIS 6570 and save yourself $15 bucks, and get alittle more performance for your dollar.
Pros: Extremely powerful for a onboard gpu, super product from Amd. If this is the new future then it is going to be a bright one. A+ to newegg as always with super fast shipping.
Cons: None, nada, zlich, zero
Other Thoughts: I haven't tried out the hybrid crossfire option as of yet. But the onboard plays games like Need for Speed World at max settings with only a couple frame drops. This is the same performance I have seen from a HD 6850. So with the correct crossfire config this chip with beat that.READ FULL REVIEW
