5 out of 5 eggs Great value! Two of these in Crossfire mode beat out a single R9 Fury. 09/20/2016

This review is from: SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 480 100406NT+8GOCL 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Cool running. When using one, the fan almost never came on. Using two were a little cooler than the R9 Fury it replaced.
Crossfire: Unlike Nvidia counterparts, two may be linked together and provide increased graphics performance. Newer Crossfire technology allows Crossfire linkage without the telltale external connector anymore.
LED color display: One of the coolest things about this card. Using the Trixx software, you can change colors of the Sapphire name based on user setting. Matches my keyboard cycling through colors.
Display performance: Great single card performance especially for a 1440 resolution on a wide screen display.

Cons: Crossfire: Not all games are optimized and may actually slow down under Crossfire configuration. Your results may vary. Initial difficulty in getting both cards to function together. Recommend if purchasing cards separately, when adding in second card, first uninstall the driver software, add the card and reinstall the software. Ensure power is supplied to the second card.

Other Thoughts: Now that these are available at a reasonable price, if your existing single card is R9 Fury or higher and you are only purchasing one, probably not worth the swap. However if you want to Crossfire, then ditch the Fury for two of these bad boys! You will be amazed. In my mind, Sapphire is one of the best high performance manufacturer of AMD video cards. Recommended!

Cons: - 16GB internal memory is small especially when using lots of widgets
- Freezes when memory is tight
- Moving some apps to ext SD card prevents display of associated widget

Other Thoughts: Some of the bloatware is good. Check out Papergarden. Without doubt, the best tablet to date.

ASRock 990FX Extreme6 AM3+ Northbridge: AMD 990FX Southbridge: AMD SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Good, stable motherboard, liked the m.2 slot 08/18/2016

This review is from: ASRock 990FX Extreme6 AM3+ Northbridge: AMD 990FX Southbridge: AMD SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: One of the very few 990FX chipset motherboards with an M.2 slot. Not a huge performance increase because of limited bandwidth, but exceeded the typical SATA 3 channel on the motherboard.

Works well with a AMD 8350

Cons: Not stable with the AMD FX 9590. Could have been heat related, but I am running with liquid cooling. When I downgraded to 8350, performance was so much more reliable with a relatively small hit.
Old and tired 990FX chipset needs a real refresh. Looking forward to Zen and supported motherboards in the next 6 months to a year.

Other Thoughts: Recommend this to others with a limited budget and want to try out M.2 SSD in a non-Intel motherboard.
