This thing is huge! 09/26/2008
Two of the most powerful chips tied to GDDR5 with a built-in crossfire setup makes the best video card I could have imagined. I use thing primarily for Lord of the Rings Online, and run 1680x1050 with every setting turned up all the way. I sit at 60 fps solid with Vsync on, and during insanely busy scenes never drop below 30 fps. On my old 8800 GTS I had less than half the graphical settings and averaged 30 fps at the same resolution.
Currently a driver issue with LotRO making Anti-Aliasing and DX10 not survive inside scenes. Until this is fixed I am running without AA on, but my frame rate doesn't even seem different with 8x is on compared to none.
I have a large server case and this comes less than half an inch away from the hard drive cage. I even had to turn it at an angle to get it in before inserting it. Takes lots of power, I had to upgrade from a 610 Watt PSU to a 750; though I could have gone with 650 supposedly. If you have the system that can handle this you will not be disappointed. Being able to use the insanely high resolution textures makes games look like pre-rendered scenes!
No doubt about it, beastly size, beastly power and beastly performance.
Thanks for going Palit.
