Poor (edit your comment) Add link

Fine for light low-setting and retro gaming, as well as being a display adapter in a pinch (maybe would help for Ryzen setups, especially in this GPU crisis). With an i5 2320 at minimum settings 720p dx 81 with comanglia's config, TF2 was very playable, even with a somewhat fluctuating frame rate on my 144hz monitor. Doesn't consume much power but can run a bit loud due to the small cooling solution/form factor. There really is no reason to get one of these, besides getting it for free from an old OEM system.
