    Picked up my Radeon X850XT card yesterday and got it running but I noticed a flat, 4/5-pin female connector on the card, about the size of a SATA connector that seemingly does not serve a purpose. At least, not in my case. It's located next to the Molex connector.

    Anyone have any clue of what this could be? The card is AGP by the way.. I was thinking it might have been a PCI-E connector but why would they leave it on an AGP board?

    [EDIT] Actually, was just in my case cleaning some wires and noticed it's a Male connector.

    I did. The manual sucks to be honest, and didn't mention anything about it.

    Found it m8


    Since this is the AGP version of the card, it requires one external Molex connector for power. The yellow connector on this card is a front panel composite video input connection that you can use if you have an analog video capture port on the front of your case.

    Thank you! That's one less thing that's running around in my mind. ;)
