From card running at idle to full load underneath Crysis 2, the total wattage increase is only 200 watts. At idle it seems to draw 10 watts more than the ATI 5770 card it replaced.
Card has over twice the raw thru put of the previous card it replaced but the GPU rendering in Sony Vegas only improved 20% which indicates the drivers need serious work to improve it. Photoshop CS identifies the ATI OpenCL drivers and gives full GPU acceleration.
Sitting at idle, the card temperature is 57°C while the motherboard and CPU are sitting at 85°F! Default fan speed is to slow and allows the card to heat up to much whether at idle or at max. Setting the fan speed to 40% drops the temperature over 12°C without much noise. When playing games, I manually set the fan speed to 50-60% to keep the temps down in the 60-65°C range. The fan is loud at the higher speeds, but its low pitch sound makes it more bearable. At 100% it's impressive the amount of air it can move and how loud it is.
In my computer, the card has a 230mm fan on the left, two 140mm fans to the front, two 120mm fans to the back, and another 230 mm fan above so the card has cool air blowing across it at all times. When playing Crysis 2 or GPU rendering, it's impressive the amount of heat the card blows out of its vents. If you have a computer that normally runs hot, I'd look at one of the other brands with multiple fans.Read more ›
It's been 2 months for them to address my issue, and still remains unresolved.
So, if you buy this card, just hope that it won't break down or you will be dealing with awful customer support.
