Pros: 4 GB memory.
GCN 1.2 (Alot of improvements over earlier GCN)
Excellent cooling by XFX with a very good quality PCB and components.
Pretty much the best card for 1080p gaming!
Cons: None really? Didn't come out sooner.
XFX could use a little bit of work on the XFX website. Its a little bit difficult to navigate especially when trying to register the card.
Other Thoughts: I wanted this due to the GCN 1.2 alot of improvements in tessellation etc.. I'd recommend this card to anyone gaming on a 1080p monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks are amazing. Green and Black is absolutely gorgeous on the board. The quality of the PCB and components are TOP no better. Gigabyte is the best when it comes to that area. Bios is great too.
Cons: Killer LAN is GARBAGE!!!!! Seriously after using Intel LAN or even Realtek is an improvement over this thing. Also the sound pops and crackles randomly. Not too happy with that. Especially when the board is geared towards sound.
Other Thoughts: Good, But I have had better for cheaper. I am sure with a couple driver updates this will be an excellent board.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The board has nice on-board audio and is packed well.
Cons: Where to start. First the board is FLIMSY compared to the A88X up4. Ugly brown PCB, Almost looks rusted. The bios has alot of control but yet it doesn't let you control anything. You set something in bios and it magically changes values on its own. That's unacceptable. Another huge issue is AMD TURBO CORE DOES NOT WORK on this board. No matter what you try in bios, enable, manually set, Turning off Cool and quiet nothing makes turbo core make whats so ever. Thats a problem, again no control in bios. Maybe a bios update will fix these issues but who knows when that will be 1 week - 5 months? Who knows. As it is now this board is NOT WORTH it.
Other Thoughts: I can't recommend any AsRock products. Every single one I have owned have been plagued with bios issues and poor quality. I gave them another shot with this board and it pretty much proved what I already knew. Do your self a favor and pay a little more for a quality product.READ FULL REVIEW
