2 out of 5 eggsSomething Wrong with this card!

Pros: Direct X 11 support, relatively low power requirements, fair price if not defective.

Cons: The issue I have with the card is that it scores lower on almost every test compared to my 2009 Radeon 4650. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102838 The 4650 has lower specs across the board, half the DDR3 RAM, lower clock etc. I have two builds that are identical with the exception of CPU, both AMD Phenom II X4 one is an 810 the other is an 830, 200MHz difference. Same OS and Apps etc.. I first noticed the Windows experience score for Aero Experience being 2 full points lower, I know that this is not a valid benchmark, but lead me to run other tests. The other thing I noticed was the lack of certain graphics effects missing on the system with the 6570 that the 4650 had. It seems that just one element of the GPU might have failed. Benchmarking puts the 6570 on par with an Intel HD4000 which is far lower than I would have expected. It's not that I'm gaming or a performance nut, I bought the card to take the load off from the shared memory of the on-board graphics, but feel I have a defective card, since I should be scoring at least equal to a 4 year old card with lower clocks and half the ram.

Other Thoughts: I've now run several benchmarks, but nothing isolates a specific part of the card that's responsible for the low scores or effects. I contacted XFX support at 28 days, and found their response less than helpful. ~ "The Windows Aero scores are very misleading with GPU scores. The best way to get a real result is to run a DX10 Benchmark tool, since 4000 series cant run dx11. That will give you the results you are looking for." -- Why would the 4650 not supporting DX11 cause a disadvantage for the 6570? They also stated.. ~"However, you should know that a 4650 is equivalent to a 6570 performance wise, they are marginally different." -- I posted a link to the 4650 in my cons for specs. I take it as dismissive when a company tells me that they sell a chip with 2 generations of advancement, twice the DDR3 memory, a higher core clock, a higher memory clock and an extra 160 stream processors than a 4 year old card, with the expectation that they are equal performance wise. If only that were the case, the reason I opened the ticket was that they are not equal, the 6570 is slower, and not able to process certain effects. If it was as good as the 4650, I'd be happy. So not really impressed with XFX support if they think that answer addressed my issue. I will now swap the two cards to eliminate it being something in one of the systems. I will then run the new 3Dmark tests to try to find the cause myself. If I find anything other than the previous tests, I'll post an update. Otherwise if you don't hear from me, I'd be concerned about buying this card.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we're sorry you are having issues with this card. Are you noticing any other issues, other than performance? I would be happy to approve an RMA for you so we can test it under warranty. Please contact me at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com. Thank you
