It is been a small while since AMD's Llano chip has established. When the test answers showed that its incorporated graphics processor was the quickest on the market. Now not all of its capabilities had been tested. In fact, the Llano IGP has the power to function asymmetrical CrossFire, which this time has been dubbed "Dual-Graphics Mode". This is something already seen in former chipsets from both AMD and NVIDIA, but back then IGPs such as the Geforce 8300 or the HD 3200 were so weak that the cards they could be coupled with were in the so low-end of the market spectrum.
With Llano, this is entirely dissimilar story; the most strong card that can be utilized in conjunction with the latest APUs is the Radeon HD 6670, which is not perfectly low-end. ASUS has sent one of its models so the capability of Llano can be tried. That special model is without a doubt created to function; it arrives skilled with 1GB of GDDR5 memory and it has a custom heatsink whereas affordable HD 6670 offerings ship with just 512MB memory.
The first thing that stands out about this card is the non-reference cooler. Commonly there is no pressing conclude to create the plastic heatsink shroud longer than the card itself except for looks, but a heatsink and fan of this dimension on such a graphics processing unit could create for developed thermal function.
The heat sink is added on to the card with four screws. The PCB itself is fairly easy in layout and not really crowded. The card fits in the 75W envelope inflicted through the PCI-E standard, so it does not require an outer power source.
The fan blows onto the nicely sized aluminum heat sink. It is attached to 4 cords, suggesting its speed can be adjusted according to the graphics processing unit temperature for controlled noise output. Connectors add one for DVI-I, an HDMI 1.4a slot with Stereoscopic 3D Frame Packing Format, and Display Port 1.2 with Multi-Stream Transport, entire packed in an individual-slot bracket.
