World in Conflict at maximum details is just not made for this kind of system, so in order to get at least double digit results we had to put the game on medium settings. Conclusion The card is capable of running most games at reasonable resolutions, its cooling is effective and the temperatures are surprisingly low. A passive card for mature PCs. Of course, the main advantage of a passive cooling solution is it’s completely silent, so if you are a “noise-freak” a passive solution is made for you. The only difference between this card and the MB version is memory size; the cooler and the clocks are identical.

Bear in mind temperatures are measured in an open case environment, and in a closed case good airflow is a must. Simple math comes into play: Games Games like F.
The reason for r2600pro we decided to pick this system is the fact that the AGP market is dying, and that those in search for the AGP card either want to make a nice HTPC out of their aging system or simply just want to refresh it a little. It was interesting to see that the temperature on the GPU block is the same as the one on the heatsink fins, which means that the heat is effectively transferred from the GPU to the heatsink.
Of course, rwdeon main zti of a passive cooling solution is it’s completely silent, so if you are a “noise-freak” a passive solution is made for you. In Serious Sam 2 the difference rises as you set higher resolutions, which we can attributed to the difference in memory amount and memory interface, but MSI HD Pro handles Antialiasing and Anisotropic Filtering really well. A passive card for mature PCs. Yet another difference is the 4-pin floppy connector which can’t be found on the PCI-Express version.
The card msj Windows Vista and its Aero Glass without any problems. ATI’s HD Pro GPU, or less commonly known as RV, is made in the 65nm manufacturing process which is the main prerequisite for this card to be passively cooled, since it produces less heat and doesn’t need a large heatsink like, for example, Sapphire’s HD Ultimate.
As this card comes without the temperature sensor on its core, we measured it using the temperature probes placed on the GPU block and on the heatsink fins on the back of the card. Even then, the cards, as well as the entire system, just didn’t have what it takes to run this demanding game. We were very skeptical concerning the performance of this cooling solution, but MSI has managed to pleasantly surprise us. That difference is noticeable in 3DMark 03 where the HD Pro has marks less, and in the 3DMark 06 where the difference is lower, marks.
The main credit goes to the large heatsink, as well as the fact that the RVPro core doesn’t heat up too much, thus making it a perfect candidate for passive cooling.
Conclusion The card is capable of running most games at reasonable resolutions, its cooling is effective and the temperatures are surprisingly low. The reason for this is simple, the AGP port can’t supply enough power to power this card.
For this test, we decided to use an older system which we like to call “old faithful,” based on Intel’s PE socket chipset paired with Intel’s P4 Northwood processor working at MHz. Fudzilla It News and reviews. As we mentioned in the beginning, MSI has decided to go for a passive cooling solution which uses dual heatpipes to transfer the heat away from the core to the heatsink located on the back of the card.
More in this category: We tried playing a few HD movies and the CPU usage ranged from 30 to 50 per cent, which is understandable if you consider rx260pro this an ancient single core processor and playing HD content is only made possible thanks to the HD Pro card. MSI was kind enough to send us the MB version.
Intel P4 Northwood 2.
MSI RXPRO-T2DE – graphics card – Radeon HD PRO – MB Overview – CNET
The only noticeable difference between the AGP and PCI-Express versions is the lack of Crossfire connector and the small Rialto bridge chip placed on the back of the card. The only difference between this card and the MB rrx2600pro is memory size; the cooler and the clocks are identical.
Benchmarking and Conclusion All Pages. The memory works at a lower clock of MHz MHz effectiveand the card has a nsi memory interface.

World in Conflict at maximum details is just not made for this kind of system, so in order to get at least double digit results we had to put the game on medium settings. The memory, on the other hand, is a different story. It’s a silent AGP card with a reasonable price and price is often what really matters in the upgrade market.
When talking about passively cooled cards it’s always worth mentioning that you should assure good airflow inside the chassis when using such cards, as passive cooling solutions are in most cases less efficient than their active counterparts. Stock Intel Cooler Memory: When compared to the X we can talk about some performance issues, but these cards aren’t in the same class or generation for that matter.
