Pros: -Not many pros except it does finally allow me to run a single video driver stack with my notebook and external thunderbolt dock (where Nvidia cards have lived / worked fine until now) -I guess it runs cool, but since I can barely use it I can't really be sure of that.
Cons: -The card is giant, wouldn't fit in my external Thunderbolt enclosure after having run both Nvidia and AMD cards in it for the last couple years without any fit issues. Why this thing is so wide is....disturbing. -It can't run a simple Passmark benchmark without failing. It barely gets through the 2D stuff which doesn't make a lot of sense for something from Intel. Then it just completely fails in 3D tests. -It required both 8 pin power connectors which is a little strange since the last couple generations of Nvidia and AMD cards I have used (admittedly mid-rangers) only require one.
Overall Review: Overall I'd wait on this card. They clearly have a lot of work to do on the drivers. And if you have a tight fit on AMD & Nvidia 2-slot cards, it'd be best to skip this unless you can run without the built in fans on it.
