- 256MB 256-Bit GDDR3
- PCI Express x16
Nice card at first 07/28/2006
- Great performance in video games
- Software that comes with the card is a great benefit of this purchase. Lots of useful things.
After about a week of use my card would lock up during play and the VPU recover would kick in and reset the card. It was running at 40-45 degrees celcius with a load so I didn't think overheating was a problem and I wasn't overclocking it any either. As time went by the instability only got worse and it completely locks up the machine after several VPU recoveries in rapid succession. This only happens in 3D applications.
I have run several tests on my memory and other parts of my computer, checked the drivers and I am pretty certain the problem is with the video card. Unfortunately I don't have another PCIE system that I can put the card into to test it but I am relatively certain that I am just the unfortunate victim of faulty hardware. I'm trying to get fixed up with ATI support.
