Get better media and gaming performance over integrated graphics with the XFX Force Radeon R5 230 Low Profile Graphics Card. Using this card instead of a video chip integrated into your motherboard has several benefits. The main benefit is enhanced video processing with discrete video memory. Another benefit of a dedicated video card is more output options. This card has VGA, DVI, and HDMI output for interfacing with a wide variety of displays. Additionally, because dedicated video cards have their own video memory, system memory is freed up for running computer programs. Having a dedicated graphics solution also accelerates programs that are compatible with APIs like DirectX. When using those compatible programs, the GPU will take some of the processing load off of your CPU allowing the program to run more smoothly.

Hardware-wise this card uses a 625 MHz core coupled to 2GB of DDR3 vRAM. Included with this card is a low profile bracket so you can use this card in micro tower cases or regular ATX cases. Because of its relatively low thermal footprint, this card only needs a passive heatsink to keep cool. Having a heatsink with no fan increases reliability and provides a silent GPU cooling solution.

AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture
The 28nm GCN Architecture's more efficient process technology puts more transistors in less space, enabling an increase in processing power while decreasing voltage requirements and heat.
AMD PowerTune 2.0
Dynamically adjusts the clock speed during runtime based on the thermal output of the GPU. If there is sufficient thermal headroom, PowerTune will increase the clock speed to increase performance.
AMD HD3D Ready
Enjoy an immersive experience with full support for High Definition Stereoscopic 3D, a technique that presents 2D images (movies, games, photos) in a format that creates the illusion of three-dimensional depth when using compatible 3D displays / glasses / software.
Dual Display Technology
Display your desktop using dual monitors. Having multiple monitors makes games more immersive and can increase productivity by enabling you to have more windows visible simultaneously.
AMD Dual Graphics Ready
When this card is combined with a motherboard featuring an integrated AMD Radeon APU, their processing power can be combined to provide a performance boost when needed.
AMD App Acceleration Technology
The GPU will accelerate video playback from compatible applications including from the web, reducing stutter. App Acceleration will also apply itself to running the applications themselves to take some of the processing load off of the CPU.
6x Tesselation Technology
Maintains performance while enabling advanced tesselation. Tesselation provides more details in surface rendering and helps to more accurately define bumpy or uneven objects such as bumpy roads, textured fabrics, and rippling water.
Multi Sample Anti-Aliasing (MSAA) Technology
Fills in jagged spaces with varying shades of color for smoother rendering of curved and slanted edges for more realistic, crisp images with minimal artifacts.
Bullet Physics Engine Technology
Take advantage of the 3D physics capabilities of compatible games which include completely destructible objects, walls, and buildings collapsing from gun fire, realistic particle effects such as fire that reacts to the environment and realistic details such as moving hair, water, and other textures.
Partially Resident Textures PRT Technology
Generates more combinations of textures for less repetition in surfaces, making more realistic images while minimizing the hit on processing power.
