Huge Performance, Huge size, tiny heat signature and quiet 05/10/2013
It is insanely fast. I used to have the superbly good the superbly good 570 OC2 from Gigabyte and this thing is a significant upgrade. I went from 25 fps average to 40fps running Planetside2 with everything cranked up to the max at 2560x1600.
It is extremely quiet. The giant radiator and 3 fans do a great job at keeping the temps lows. 60c on full load.
I went for the 4GBs version because I like running high res texture packages.
I am also playing Batman Arkham city all maxed with Physx running on the video card. Some times the card shugs a little when there is a lot of stuff triggering the physx at the same time. However this might be one of the many optimization issues that the game has. The performance test gives me 50fps. /shrug
This card is HUGE!. Not a problem for my case but it might be a problem for some low end cases. It uses 3 slots and is also a very heavy card so take a look at your locking mechanism for the card as some cases might not be solid enough to keep it steady. It is the price you pay for the giant radiator and the 3 huge fans.
I recently upgraded to a 30inch monitor so the 570 was not cutting it with everything maxed at that res and a friend wanted to buy a card at a budget so i sold him mine on the cheap.
Had it not been for this the 570 was more that enough for maxing any game at 1920x1280.
