Abit Computer RX700 Pro
  • Expert Rating

    3.00 / 5

Pros

  • Performs reasonably well

Cons

  • Only 128MB of memory, no extras

Bottom Line

It's a little cheaper than comparable cards, but its performance is not quite up to scratch.

Would you buy this?

This card has a memory capacity of 128MB of GDDR3, which is half the capacity of many other cards that use the same processor. It is based on the ATI Radeon X700 PRO GPU, and its clock speeds are 425MHz for the GPU and 866MHz for the memory.

The cooling solution on the chip is an active one, meaning it has a fan as well as a heat sink on its GPU, but the memory chips do not have any heat sinks attached. In our tests, its performance was slightly lower than other 256MB X700 PRO-based cards.

Installation was very simple using the auto-run CD-ROM, and the card ran reliably and relatively quietly throughout our tests.

The card does not ship with any games nor any extra utilities, but it does have video-out capabilities and a DVI port, and ships with composite and S-Video cables as well as a DVI-VGA adapter. Its price tag is lower than the other cards in its class, but comparatively, its performance scores and the lack of a gaming bundle do not make it an attractive purchase. There is also a 256MB version of this card available.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
