+ Small form factor compared to my old Asus nvidia 8800 GTX
+ Very lite and extremely silent, Can't believe that I have a performance graphics card which is so silent
+ Played Crysis 2 maxed out settings with high resolution texture and it played it very smoothly! you gotta see dx11 to believe it!
cons: none so far and I bet there will be none for sometime to come.
I am very happy with the card and a must buy if you are looking in the $350 range performance graphic cards..
ASUS seems to have discontinued this card for some reason, and I managed to get a decent going out of style sale so I paid about as much as a regularly priced 7850 here on Amazon after mail in rebate. When comparing my benchmarks to those online, I'm getting similar ballpark numbers so I am very happy. The card is large, about 10.5" long, takes two 6-pin graphics card power connectors, and at least two slots on the motherboard. Being there are two fans on the heat sink, I would not recommend installing anything in the immediate slot next to this card unless you are prepared to cool that setup down well. I have two fans pushing fresh air onto this card, so I have not had problems with heat yet. That being said, it does heat up when playing games, but nothing out of the ordinary for a large card like this.
It came with a download voucher for "Sleeping Dogs". Seems like a fun game, haven't played it much because I bought the card to play CS:GO with friends online and my old setup could run CS: Source (lowest settings), but choked on GO.
Installation went without a hitch. I downloaded the stock drivers from AMD before installing the card because I rarely use drivers on the disc, and ASUS wanted me to download and install programs separately to make this work.Read more ›
For temperature reference, I have this case: NZXT Phantom 410 Mid Tower USB 3.0 Gaming Case - White
The card itself idles around 29 degrees C, watches a 1080P youtube video at 39 degrees as it has AMD's app accelerator to provide seamless video playback and can even smooth out the imperfections in the video as you watch! When playing at the limits with max clock speeds and AA being used, I have seen it max out at 59 degress with 44% fan activity on the card itself.
One quick note -- It is a monster in its physical size as well, be sure to have a large case! I have already heard of people not being prepared and cutting out portions of their case to accomodate this refined beast (ouch).
I heard Asus's drivers can cause compatibility issues so I did not install them, but instead went with the generic drivers from AMD, and it works perfectly. The main thing I love about this card versus other brands during my research is how much Asus put into the cooling design. It's not obnoxious, it looks great cosmetically, and does its job phenomenally.Read more ›
Games like: Call of duty, Crysis 2, Hitman absolution, Tomb Raider 2013 are run pretty well by this card.
The unique inconvenience is the software, some times it get stuck and freeze the screen, and the only way to solve the issue is rebooting the computer.
I intend to Crossfire another one of these cards within the near future which will push me over what would be required to run the previously mentioned games maxed out. (to put it in perspective it will bottleneck my CPU at stock speeds.)
This card runs ASUS's DirectCUII, while it isn't the best looking card on the market, twice the fans means up to 20% cooler, and significantly quieter. I can crank my cards up to 55% (using ASUS GPUTweak software)before i'm able to hear them. With their default manual setting, the card constantly runs at around 20% (though I haven't done any at-load gaming which would up the fan speeds), and is unidentifiable from the symphony of case fans (my case, the Antec DF-85 comes stock with 7 fans, with an optional 8'th on the left-side cutout, which I have installed)
Whenever possible, I opt for ASUS. Their products are built to a higher standard, and I've only had one product partially fail on me, an ASUS monitor shipped with DOA integrated speakers) and this card is no exception.
Thus far, I have nothing bad to say about this card!
