The initial card that was sent to me had the screws on the fan mountings all screwed up, so one of them was barely hanging on. Watch out for that. Returning it and receiving another one was suprisingly quick and easy, taking about 5 business days total.
Just one of these cards performs considerably better than my older Xfire 5870 set up. Sure, the price is pretty high but it is worth the extra pennies if you enjoy smooth, crystal clear visuals like I do. It is not as big as other cards of this caliber either. It is just about the same length as a 5870. The cooling system is pretty sweet too. The aluminum on it makes it heavier but aluminum gets rid of heat very well.
I have not overclocked it yet because 1000/1425 is fast enough for what I do, but that does not mean I will not try eventually.
By the way, I paired this puppy with an i7 2600k and a somewhat older ASUS P8Z68 board so neither support this card's PCIe 3.0 capability. Soon I will be getting an i7 3930K and an ASUS X79 board. I just need to save a little more cash and I will be set.
One more thing: Personally, I like to use Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIV benchmark because I enjoy playing FFXIV. It scored 6500 in that (any score over 5000 is considered very high performance) with the older PCIe 2.0 setup I am using at the moment.Read more ›
With no adjustment to voltage this card OC's to max CCC settings and at the same time remaining quiet and cool. Temps under full load OC'd are relatively low, never over 65C
After only 2 days of ownership I can see a vast improvement over my previous CF setup (Old running 2x MSI TwinFrozr 6950 2gbs PE/OC)
Some facts and in game observations...
BF3 - All sliders to max settings - 67fps - Dell 30" Monitor @2560x1600
Skyrim - Max settings - So visually stunning it will blow you away! Funny what a difference a few check boxes make...
And don't forget how unbelievably gorgeous these cards are. The new Double-Dissapation heat sink design, Ghost Thermal Technology and Silver/Black chrome finish make this by far one of the more attractive GPUs out there while delivering excellent cooling. **Putting your hand near the card during operation reveals "feeling" warmer air coming off the back section and rear of the card. To me that meant the cards design does a good job of pointing the hot air out of the case.
Bottom line: One of these will get you through most everything out there with a smile, BUT if you are running multiple monitors with high-res you may consider tossing a pair of these puppies in your rig. You won't be disappointed.
After a few days, that all changed. At first, I noticed some random artifacting, in games, but would go away when I restarted the games, no big deal right. Well, the artifacting started popping up in weird places, even over the facebook chat windows, go figure. This was tolerable, as restarting applications usually fixed it, even though it was annoying. Then the card started slowing down,(just started today) It wasnt overheating or anything, it just seemed to be throttling itself. I tested it using Furmark, and was getting 8FPS on their standard 1080p benchmark, and I also noticed it was reporting the correct core and memory speeds. Now the card doesnt do this all the time, and usually a system restart will fix it, but for a card that costs this much money, I fell like I have to return it.
Other thoughts: tested using the lastest AMD drivers 13.1. PSU is fine, 1.1KW, with plenty of power to the rails, more than enough to power one of these cards. Tested this card in another pc, with a different psu, and got the same results. I rated it 2 stars because I still have faith in XFX and their products and believe I just got a lemon card. I will most likely buy another one in a few days and will edit my review accordingly.
