Beat GFX Card(s) I've owned so far! 07/17/2012
Jaw-dropping performance; Silent operation; Runs very VERY cool. This could very well be the best Graphics Card I have owned...
[Doesn't have the "Limit 2 per Customer" -- which is considered a pro, especially if you're planning on getting more than 2 pieces]
The EVGA backplate will not fit this model. (The cards will sag after awhile without proper support)
Must have ample space if you're going to SLI these. (i.e: I tried Triple-SLI and the top & middle cards had a very hard time getting cool air)
Coming from a 6990, the performance jump wasn't that huge. I couldn't really feel it during gaming. But I saw the enormouse gap after running some benchmarks like 3dmark11. I was really impressed.
What really made me happy though, was that: not only were the cards quiet... they also kept themselves cool. REALLY COOL. (One of the major cons of having a dual-GPU was that: not only were they noisy, but it made my room so hot, I felt like I was being baked in an oven. I've learned my lesson: no more dual-GPUs for me. But all those hellish days have ended, thanks to these cards.)
