Best low profile video cards available (April ) - TR Forums

Single slot low profile gtx 1050, hi...

I've "normalized" the results to the IGP score for each proc.

A might be worthwhile for an Ivy Bridge system, but not a big bump for a Haswell proc with HD The pciex4 slot has a larger clearance in my case meaning I could get a low profile double slot card in it albeit with a drop in performance due to using the pcieX4. That might make a difference in gaming performance, but I don't know that it would be enough to keep me from wanting to install a discrete card.

One big takeaway from the testing is that a single slot RX would be a monster of a gaming card for that form factor, and an excellent update to the R7but to date no one has released such a card.

There will be a small impact on performance with a PCI-e 3.


I realize these cards are not designed for p gaming, but the question for a lot of small form factor systems ties pretty closely to the HTPC "can I play games on my TV with this" crowd. Maybe they'll do that with the Rx series. I chose i3 processors for the results comparison for two reasons: R results come from a system with an i MHz faster so may be slightly askew.

I've normalized these results to the DDR one. I also got ahold of an R7 E - Powercolor's 4-displayport R7 see the list of cards below for more detail.

Figure that in actual games, not synthetics, this difference might be even smaller, and I can easily say it's just not worth the cost. But hey, if you've got an unlocked processor and can do a little overclocking, why not try that and see what it does for performance? Also, you'll notice the GT is marginally faster than the GT when both are using GDDR5, but the R7 still has a slight advantage - seems the bit GDDR5 interface is a pretty good match for the SP config in theand thewith the same amount of SPs, isn't really able to make use of the extra bandwidth from the bit config.

Now the issue with the case is that there is only room for low profile single slot card on the pcieX Bit of research suggests very few options for this layout, best of which is potentially the GT 2GB DDDR5 there is a low profile single slot version From a different forum though I have seen the pcieX4 slot on my machine is open ended, meaning you could put a normal sized card in it.

I think the takeaway here is that a beefier processor may well make the IGP a little faster, but not by a massive amount. Hi folks, just got a SFF Dell machine and looking to add a graphics card.

Here is a very brief overview: Can't find your answer? Some interesting results in their database here, and it confirms my suspicions and those of many others that a card with DDR3 is absolutely not worth the cost of entry at this point. It might be enough to hold me off until all the new cards have launched, though!

Slots 500 deposit bonus Gate is not a graphics-only test; it also does a physics test and the overall score is averaged somehow from all of the results. I also have a system with an ik in it, and if I get a chance to connect another drive to that box for a quick Windows install and benchmark run I'll include those numbers here, but I expect what you'll see is largely the same as the i3 vs the i5: That puts HD graphics a little slower than a mid-range part from April of If you can do double-width low profile, though, the or ti are the definite winners.

Considering that the GTX is significantly faster than a GTit should still perform much faster than that card on an x16 slot. I don't think the was as common in the low-end processors for Sandy Bridge, but honestly can't recall - I skipped from Clarkdale to Haswell on the desktop, with a big gap of "not paying attention to this stuff" in between.

Results and discussion are located in this thread: I figure it is comparable.

The pricing makes less sense when compared to other equivalently priced cards. Memory type was determined by reported clock speed and known video card configurations. Just make sure that the slot is in fact an x4 slot, and not an x1 slot, since that would cause a more substantial performance hit.


Keep in mind that the PCI-e generation will also affect the slot's bandwidth. Radeon Pro WX I've done a bit of testing on one of my own systems about this, out of curiousiry, including some memory tweaking and overclocking results.

GT results from a system using i; same clock speed as but has onboard HD instead of HD I've listed all three scores below, but I think the "overall" score is going to be most indicative of the kind of performance increase you can expect from installing one of these cards.

The isn't much slower than the ti, so unless you can get one for an especially good price, it seems the ti makes the most sense.

To try and get an idea of this, I browsed through Futuremark's databaselooking for "Cloud Gate" scores. My two system configs: I focused on these processors: Since it's easy enough to spec an ITX system with 8GB of system RAM, I've looked for results from systems with that amount, and a few different video card options for each proc.

The and ti are really the best option if your case has room for a double-slot low profile card. For the first set of tests I wanted to highlight the difference between previous single slot low profile gtx 1050 newer games unplayable, older games sometimes passable and current gen newer games playable, though not great.

Moving on, let's see the i3 vs the i5, to explore whether or not there's big gains to be had from having four physical processors: So my question is, how much of a performance drop is there when using pcieX4. There were, although they weren't "validated".

For example, what would win, roulette number GTX 4gb obvs higher spec than 2GB in the pcieX4 or the gt 2gb with no drop in performance in the pciex16?

That's a tough call, but in that form factor, it's the best option. As kuririkura pointed outthe higher-end processors can push their onboard graphics a little harder than these i3s.

The i and i are same clock speeds, but one has HD graphics and the other has HD
