    So for £30 you can get a small, quiet and relatively powerful card for a media PC. Low power consumption too....... And it will play games in a basic form.... Bargain, absolute bargain.

    No reviews or scores regarding HD play back?

    For a HTPC card with HD in the title that seems like a bit of an omission

    Good review though

    See the below which I have copied from the first page of the review, will probably see the next part of the review in a couple of days...

    ''The evaluation will be split into two articles. The first - this one - focuses on architecture and 3D performance whilst a subsequent one will detail multimedia capabilities.''

    Yup, as Mark points out, the time limit was such that we could run performance numbers.

    Actually, we're far more interested in the HTPC performance, so watch out for this against a GeForce 9400 GT.

    Is this is a paper launch, because nothing is showing up in retail. If so what is the proposed release date?

    I look forward to the HQV tests for the 4550, and how it stacks up against IGP solutions such as 780G/790GX and G45.
