Obviously done for the sake of cooling, not like it’s there to make toast. Overall I was hefcules surprised with the way the card performed. I had expected a bigger difference, after all the Kyro 1 is 60MHz slower and has half the RAM of the Kyro 2, but such 40000xt not the case.
Quake 3 tells the same story: He is a lifelong computer geek and loves everything related to computers, software, and new technology.
OpenGL wouldn’t start for Quake 3, 2D was terribly sluggish in windows, video was low-resolution and low-color and looked horrible.

If you’re going to be playing games in the lower resolutions, that is, x or x, and considering this is a low-end video card I wouldn’t recommend playing in the higher resolutions anywayyou’ll get acceptable performance levels.
