here we have it
so much for using a desktop card with a passive cooler, which I grabbed for use in a server
Downloaded the new beta driver yesterday. Machine would not boot.
So now the box has Windows 8.1 on it and while the Athlon is sweating hard, the 8 GB of RAM makes the box run well.
Obviously the HD 5450 is useless for games, but I own two GTX 260s and a GTX 660 Ti so I have options.
Mostly this machine is using Windows server instead of desktop Windows.
Still its handy to test AMD drivers out on. I have one benchmark, the Cryostasis PhysX one which works on AMD. Its DX 10 but it still loads cards hard today.
Maybe 20nm cards will be enough to play Crysis 3 faster.
My panel is 1920x1080 so its demanding when using the HD 5450 or even a GTX 260.
