PowerColor Radeon HD 4890 AX4890 1GBD5 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Good performance, yet too hot + noisy = SHUTDOWN 04/03/2011

This review is from: PowerColor Radeon HD 4890 AX4890 1GBD5 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Very outstanding performance, runs most games at over 60fps @ 1920x1080 only if you don't put aa. Crysis ran at 30fps which is good and COD4 can run 250fps. Core clock - Memory clock are 850Mhz - 975Mhz

Cons: Runs 60C idle, load over 80-90C, could be because of my air circulation in the case but even after I took the side panel off for it to breathe, nothing changed, still 60C idle and load over 80-90C. Once the temps go that high the fan usually runs at maximum speed 100%, and I am very disturbed at how noisy this fan can be, it worries me because even at these high fan speed at these temps, my computer shuts down out of nowhere usually playing crysis or any other demanding game. My temporary solution was to lower the memory clock, the core clock kept throttling back to 850MhZ.

Other Thoughts: Btw, I bought this card from CyberPower which came with my pc.

I'm very disappointed, it's very hard for me to play games while this fan is too loud and the computer shutting down.

Do not buy this card, hopefully any other 4890 will be better than this piece of poop.
