In theory, any 6xxx card should work. However, since I cannot test every single card in existence, I cannot guarantee that this particular card will work.
At present I have received a few reports of intermittent trouble with Sapphire Radeon HD 6570 models, but others seem to have 6570s that work fine. I personally have a Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 single slot card, which works nicely.
About the 2 GiB VRAM. That isn't a problem. However, currently the driver will only use the first 256 MiB, as that's all that the CPU can see (Picasso96 assumes that the CPU can access all VRAM directly). That is a limitation that I hope to solve at some point in the future.

6xxx Cards without VGA output seem to be a problem for me.
The following card will only work using a DVI to VGA adaptor or if the monitor in turnd off until after OS4.1 boots . The computer wont boot with this any other way.
My test witha a HD 6750 resulted in no monitor display after the spalsh screen. Monitor went blank but system booted and I could control the computer via VNC from another machine.
Using a 1280x1024 monitor with this shows that the setting of the monitor resolution at boot is the problem. I could see that there was output but the frequency was all messed.

On tip for testing a new card. Set the Screen mode prefs to resolution 1024x768 before removing the working card.I thought that a new card, a HD 6770 did not work at all after installing it and getting a black screen. I happened to reboot with a Clean install of Update 5 from a bootable SD card via an external USB reader and got a display at the default 1024x768 screen resolution. I was able to fiddle with the resolution after this and found that it would work at 1440x900 but no higher. Al l the other cards that I have managed to get a display from work at 1920x1080 . Also I use my Monitors speakers for the sound output and the other display modes with this card cause the monitor to go to sleep so no sound on boot up.

Today marks two years since I started using the RadeonHD driver and a PCI to PCIE adapter with my Sam440ep-flex. I am now using a RadeonHD 6670 low profile card and the combination is lovely.
Great Work Hans .

Thanks. It's good to see people using the driver.

With the Radeon HD driver and the Radeon HD6670 the performance for an entry level AmigaNG machine is amazing .
The Sam440ep-Flex is my daytime Office Amiga NG machine so I get to use it for
long periods on work days.
