This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA2010KIT AV200 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 200Mbps
Pros: -works as intended
Cons: -facebook thinks im offline on chat sometimes...idk if this is related... it only started happening after installedREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: -fantastic card
-fantastic price (i guess this is because theres no sli)
-i like the input options, display port screens are overrated
-i havent seen it go above 52C yet
-decent overclocking potential
-looks beast... only wish I could see the cool side on a regular basis
Not in the description:
-768 cuda cores (which is really all you need for consumer 3d applications or whatnot that use cuda)
-fans are quieter than my stock fans, in fact, half the time i can't tell if they are running because they are so quiet.
-surprisingly lower voltage usage than I expected.
Cons: -no sli, but i don't really count that because I never spend the money to get two cards for sli anyway
-why this is 4 stars instead of 5:
-i have three monitors set up, two come out of this card and another out of the onboard gpu. the vga that comes out of this cord appears to be occasionally wavy and old-fashioned analogy like an old tv. I suspected that this was due to the frequency but i maxed it out and the distortions still occur (on a less frequent basis). I think there are probably several different reasons why this could be happening (vsync issues, pcie2.0-3.0 compatibility, shared memory with onboard gpu, etc...) but as for the exact cause im not sure yet. I have noticed however that this issue isn't always consistent, usually if i'm working on that monitor it fades away but when Im not it is more obvious....
-Now where is DirectX 11.1? speccy and cpuid and the nvidia control panel all say that this is a directX 11.0 card and one of the reasons I bought it was because of its 11.1 capability... i could just be missing a driver or something or maybe it just downgraded because it's in a pcie2.0 slot, either way, there should be some documentation on that somewhere at least.
Other Thoughts: -hope to get it to be 11.1
-hope to fix monitor issues
-will overclock when the time is right
-I use this for boinc which its not doing anything. does well
-all in all:
buy this card if you are a normal person and don't ever plan on using sli, best bang for your buck here, in fact i'd say it rivals usually cheaper amd cards. id be weary of the DirectX status and of the vga output.
Pros: -made previously unstable microatx rig stable
-fantastic look and feel that matches my case
-great voltage.. amount
Cons: -should'shoulder come with more zip ties....
-I don't think anyone really knows what to do with all these extra wires
Other Thoughts: -dankeREAD FULL REVIEW
