Hi everyone, I purchased a Gigabyte graphic card from Amazon and I currently have 2 issues with it.

http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-HD4550-512MB-PCIE2-GV-R4...

Issue one, the system will not boost, it keeps turning on and off for so many times, not even loading into Windows, that is with my G41 Gigabyte board. Am I experienced a comparability issue right now?? I am using another system to test to find where that is the card issue or not, but it works fine with other board.






Issue two, I am not sure about the directx 11, it says it supports directx 11 on the box and manual book, but after boosting with other machine; I found out that it only has directx 10. Originally I thought that might be a system error, but I did some researches on AMD official site it says 4550 only supports directx 10.

Please help to verify where it supports directx 10 or 11

many thanks

For the compatibility problem make sure everything's connected properly. It should only support DirectX 10.1 as only the HD 5000 series supports DirectX 11, from ATi's side anyway. The Mobility Radeon HD 5100 don't support DirectX 11 though.

It doesn't fully support DX11. That box is either an error, or misleading.

At best, you can say the card will function using the DX11 library, but without the newer features, such as tesselation working.

I'm thinking thats what they meant. I can use my cards in DX11 in some benchmarks/games but the DX11 features are locked.

Wow, borderline false advertising there...of course, they'd simply say that it works with DX11, even if it can't use it...

You could try suing them for false advertising (claim you brought the card for DX11 support); they'd probably settle out of court for a few grand! :D
