VisionTek R5 230 overview

  • 1Description

Get better media and gaming performance over integrated graphics with the VisionTek Radeon R5 230 Graphics Card. Using this card instead of a video chip integrated into your motherboard has several benefits, primarily 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 outputs 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.

This card fits in small form factor cases with the included bracket. For cooling this card uses an active fansink which pulls air across the card to cool it down. This kid of fan is best used in cases where the card is unobstructed and airflow will exhaust the recirculated air.
