  • 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5

  • 1120 Stream Processors

Pros:

Lookes nice installed

Cons:

Ran very hot. 81c idle and auto fan stayed at 100% all the time. If i manualy set the fan to even 80% the card became unresponsive and had to do a hard reset. Even at 100% if i opened a game my pc would lock up and would have to hard reset again. My intenal case ambient temperature is normally around 75F/23c this card made my ambient temperature rise to 135F/57c. I even tried driver reinstalls and used soem older drivers thinking it was the issue but no dice.

Other Thoughts:

This is the 2nd XFX card that i have had heat issues with my first was a 5770 that would idle at 60c. I bought a Asus EAH5770 CuCore and it runs at 31c idle 66c max in the same system.. I dont think i will be buying XFX again
