Silly Mail in rebate rules ( one per customer)
Would have liked to order 2 or 3.
Instant rebates good.
Mail in rebates not so good
I ordered this GPU before there we any reviews,and was a little worried after reading some of the less than stellar reviews that started posting. Now that I have installed it I can report that I have had none of the problems some others have reported.
1. The card installed perfectly
2. The fan is quiet, at least as quiet as the Sapphire 6850 it is replacing.
3. The fan speed adjusts based on temp. It has never needed to go above 50%.
4. On factory settings I burned it in with Fur Mark and the temp. never went above 74 c. (still quiet)
5. I ran it a bit on Bio Shock Infinite. On 1080 p, highest settings it ran 60 fps without breathing hard. (still quiet)
If you want to check your fan speed and performance go into the AMD Control Center and click on GPU Overdrive under the Performance tab. There you can see the temp and fan speed of the GPU. I honestly can’t hear much difference between idle and 100% fan speed.
This is my first Power Color Product and so far I couldn’t be happier. I have not done extensive testing on games but I would expect it to perform as any other 7850. Time will tell on durability, any issues here would obviously affect this review.
