Yeah, I'm aware, but they also advertize 5.1 over the earlier gens and it doesn't work. I have all the cards here, amps capable, but cannot get more than 2.0 LPCM, no matter the content. AMD support has not been helpful.
Ya some reviews show the cards with the dongle and some don't. May be just different revisions, I also see the photo of the card on Palit site has a red logo on the fan but not on my card which is just black. Solid card and I'm glad I bought it when I did $203 with rebate $179.99 at Canada Computer, but with the Canadian dollar falling it's now $229.99 with rebate $199.99.
