Conclusion

 

Flyvideo have once again given us a great little add-on for the PC users/Home entertainment freaks. With super low CPU utilization and hardware encoding and decoding, this card is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of using. While a few niggles were present such as not including any onboard RAM for caching (comes in handy incase you have high speed RAID arrays) or the internal soundcard audio connectors, I can still say this card works better than my old one.

High Quality Chipset

 

Supports over 1200 resolutions

 

Low Resources needed

- Cons
