Pros: The one i recieved overclocks extreamly well and out preforms a stock 7970 except in programing loads
Cons: base fan speed is pretty loud. But thats normal for ati, drop the fan to ~40% cap and things are goldenREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: So i dont know if this is standard but mine came with 1333 memory instead of 1066.
the whole setup gets about 8000 marks on 3dmark 06 which isnt bad considering a 4870 + i5-750 get about 1500 or so.
battery seems to be about 1-3 hours depending on what im doing
Cons: 1366x786, wierd resolution, id have prefered something more normal. minor gripe tho and just a personal one.
Other Thoughts: the cpu is abit underclocked at 1.6ghz. however the i series boost really saves it. during games i regularly see it shut down two other cores and hit 2.8ghz or so running just two cores.
the boost also seems to take effect with four cores active but caps out around 2ghz
Pros: see below
Cons: see below
Other Thoughts: Very decent card for the price, but ive found nvidias drivers to be fairly screwy which is saddening as they used to be so very good. Has about half again the power of my 6800gs so a little bit disapointing there as i figured 2 generations latter would be abit better.READ FULL REVIEW
