personally i dont see the point for such cards. if you want a low power card for a media centre a standard x1300 is cheaper. plus it may well be low profile but it ruins that by being so bloody wide
it's for people who don't have AGP or PCI-Express slots (think Dell users) and want to move away from integrated graphics.
There's obviously a market for it, otherwise they wouldn't sell it. Couldn't you potentially fill up all PCI slots with one of these?
Nice to see HIS use their own coolingsystem.
I think that could be used as somesort of modeling computer GC in factory as known thoes don't have much power.
Yep, I havent made this mistake ever but I know plenty who have in the past. They are still stuck with a dell but it makes their life a little easier.
Don't forget it's helpful if you're moving to a triple monitor setup on you don't have 2 PCI-e slots free - or AGP...
Or if you want a card to drive a PS1 Screen mod and you don't want to risk blowing the G80 via excellent soldering skills
Bit of a shame that they don't make a thin version, though. I mean really, how much heat can that core output.
now, if you can find a modern(or older) board with 6 PCI, 1AGP, and use these or the visionteks - massively montiplayer workstations ensue!
A little bit of creativity goes a long way.
