This weekend I installed two of these ASUS cards in Win10 i3 boxes which
did not appear to have adequate drivers available for their intel GPUs.
Their RAM comes with a higher speed rating than the similar MSI card
that I have been using with Myth master, Fedora 26, intel core2duo; I
don't know if it's just a marketing number. I had no problems. Single
slot width, passive cooling, seems happy driving 2x1920x1080 displays,
one hdmi with audio, one vga.
