eats everthing i throw at it. wish drivers would work right, but this has been a problem of ati's/amd's for ages now. took 2days and acouple of six packs to finnally get it running without crashing.
needs to be xfired with hd5870 for additional performance, mines wont oc past 750core 1050mem with out artifacting. was going for broke and do a 5970 in quadfire but that doesnt work out too well, a triple cross fire set up will perform better. not really a con but, it still is the fastest single card out on the market right now. knocked an egg off due to junk drivers.
waiting on artic freezer heatsink, these things run hot, have to set fan on 45-50% if catalyst works half the time. really not an issue. i knew what i was getting into before i made the purchase. this card xfired with a hd5870 and a 4ghz cpu will keep up with any new card untill directx 12 releases with win8.
scores a 6300-6500oc on its own in 3dmark 11. 1090t at 4ghz,8gig 1333 ddr3 at 1600.
