After initial card installation, the monitor screen was blank. Try to troubleshoot by removing new card, desktop back to normal. Cannot download driver as card not detected.
Went to BIOS to select boot up with motherboard GPU, insert card, download and install driver, change BIOS to boot with graphics card.
It seems to punch a little above his weight, running Star wars Battlefront 2 without major issues. It's quiet and performs well. It's not a high end gaming card by any means, but it's affordable with good performance at it's price point
Otherwise this is a good option if you just require a basic GPU (ie. For AMD processors). Passive cooling is also a bonus if you're concern about noise.

If you want (like me) a silent card to run your desktop at 4k and occasional game use - and don’t expect full performance - then this is excellent.
I get 2160p60 resolution over HDMI which is exactly what I needed. It also supports hardware acceleration of videos like H264, HEVC, HEVC hi10p, or VP9 without any issues.
The only thing is struggles to play is HEVC hi10p HDR UltraHD blurays using MadVR, which appears to need about 3.5GB of vram. Not a big deal since there is no much content out there yet anyway.
The card is also small enough to not need a slot support and will easily fit in a compact case (e.g. a 2U rackmount). I didn't actually buy it for a silent build but in order to have a less cramped build when using multiple graphics cards while passing through a high powered graphics card to a windows VM. This high powered card has a similar db to a jet engine under load when it gets too hot and wasn't going well cramped in with a super high speed NIC, high core CPU and silly fast NVME drive. This card solved the problem and has hugely reduced temperatures without me adding any fans.
So .. buy this if you need high res. and minimal 3D. It's great for any 3D desktop effects your into, and You can certainly play older games and some simpler modern games with this card, but you may need a fan / open case with low ambient temp. to prevent throttling. If you have such a retro CPU you need it for video decoding you probably can run a decent looking dekstop at a decent resolution anyway and would be better paired with a cheaper card.
It pays to use the propietary drivers under linux if you want a slick high res fancy desktop like kde and gnome with loads of effects .. but as they aren't open source they aren't well integrated and can cause no end of problems .. e.g. required more work than I could be bothered with to integrate with my monitoring software (libre) .. the only hardware I have in a large stack like that, doesn't like wayland at all, required hacks to allow DDC (which I used for switching displays when doing VM passthrough) .. oh yeah .. and required fixes to work with the recent kernel I was using. I or someone like me would have patched all them of course .. but it's not open source .. so .. you're really better off with AMD for linux or if you can bear it .. using the open source drivers (they're not that bad .. but personally I get tweaked out by clunky mouse pointers or 2 bit colour 4k res desktops). As far as I can tell .. there is no extra pain under windows vs other graphics cards so do not hesitate if you're going for main use in windows.
And I like peace & quiet - so I want a passive card - i.e. no fan.
My existing passive card was running hot, so I worried about upgrading with another passive card, but I reasoned that a more powerful card ought to have to do less work and so ought to run cooler.
And I am right. This card runs consistently between 34 & 39 degrees C - which is 15 degrees cooler than the older card, which consistently ran at 50-55 degrees.
The card does not require a separate power cable, as it gets what it needs from the PCIe. It comes fitted with a full height bracket, but there is a low-rise bracket in the box.
All in all, a good piece of kit if all you want it to do is watch stuff.
I don't game, so not sure how fast or slow it is in 3D. However it is blissfully silent, which I really value, and the fastest passively cooled discrete GPU card I could find with current (actively updated) Win 10 drivers. It is fast enough in 2D compositing that screen updates via RDP is instantaneous.
Is the card worth £90? No; articles on established hardware sites have the card at around $60 in the past but as the only card I could find whilst passively cooled and not something from 20 years ago (ATI Rage Pro!), will have to do.
I would make sure you get the GDDR5 version, rather than the DDR4 version which is reported to be markedly slower.
