Solid card, decent PQR10/28/2015 12:16:47 PM

Pros: Smooth 1080p performance (Skyrim, Bioshock Infinite, Starcraft II, Heroes of the Storm), 30-60 FPS on average. Simple fan control/overclock through ASUS software. Good build quality, backplate is a plus. Silent at idle, fans haven't been louder than other system fans under load. Temperature generally under 70 C (60/30 idle w/ 0db fan off/on). Single 8-pin power connector instead of 2x 6-pin. Virtual super resolution is easy to enable and works as desired.

Cons: Included software disc is outdated. Download updated versions of the driver and gpu monitor (if desired) from ASUS's website.

Overall Review: Generally comparable to the GTX 960 (faster at some things, slower at others) and a bit cheaper. Power consumption is higher but not excessively. Note: This GPU is hard to find on the ASUS website -- it's not listed, but the page does exist.
