AMD has long been the value proposition when it comes to gaming. Whether it's processors or graphics cards, you can always rely on it to give you options no matter what your cashflow looks like.
Indeed, with this little card at around £50, it's seriously limboing that £100 price point.
So we've seen the HD 6570's big brother in action and, ignoring the more tantalising prospect of the XFX Radeon HD 5770, it's not a bad little budget gamer's card.
Based on the same essential architecture, this slightly slower £50 version ought to be pretty good value too.

But you've got to ask yourself what you really expect from a £50 GPU.
