Below you will see some images captured of Transformers in HD playing. I was using the Xbox 360 drive to play the HD version of the movie. Every time I tried this on my monitor and with an Nvidia card I would get an issue that the screen was not HD. Since I now have a HD TV I was able to test this part out without any problems.

 

 

 

I also have the King Kong HD from getting the drive.

 

Overall the benchmarks had issue running, but testing everything else against the card worked fine with no problems. We can probably chalked this up as a software issue with the benchmarks.

Games get high frame rate with DX9 (117fps Lost cost DX9 test) games, DX10 are on average being around 30fps. Power level requirements are high and the size of the card is one of the biggest on the market, matching the Nvidia DX10 high-end cards. The ATI matches close to the Nvidia 8800GTS mid-range card when it was released for speed and abilities. All of the cable and extra converters are a nice plus for the card, as well as having a code to get HL2 Ep2, which I haven't finished yet unfortunately.

The DVI2HDMI converter was easy to use to get the card hooked up to the tv set. Since ATI has not been my preferred card I still have to say it is a very nice gaming card for a mid-range system. Vista internal system scores the ATI video card a 5.9, so it should be fine to meet your DX10 needs for the time being.

Thanks to ATI for sending this card over!



Pros:

  • DVI2DHMI converter included
  • DX10 compatible
  • HD 5.1 sound
  • Nice design and use of fancy flames


Cons:

  • Benchmarks DNR
  • Was not as powerful as expected
  • High power requirements
