    When it comes to video cards fan noise means a lot to me and this card doesn't disappoint in that regard.

    Only 8.4 score on that one too? When the total failure Nvidia 550Ti got 8.8? Again the "No support for CUDA/PhysX" slogan?

    Maybe this is an explanation for what's happening on techpowerup (from an older article in The Inquirer):

    Its still doesnt change the fact there are some games witch has the ability to use advance physics with ONLY Nvidia's craphics cards. about CUDA, when AMD STREAM will balance with CUDA in terms of common support in apps that wont be a problem

    Imma go and grab my shovel for this hardcore necro...

    Did you replace the washers or did you just add new ones on top of the old ones? I have this card and it has the same puny transparent washers, so I'm a bit worried.

    AMD stream is dead.

    If all goes well all companies will be making the move to open cl since most hardware could utilize it.

    And it dynamically sets it's self to what ever processor will be best for the job.

    Shame development will take a long time but some of the little toys I've seen and used based on opencl are very impressive.

    same goes for my hd 6950 vortex II

    i got the same problem here. but even though i had it placed with washers. still temperature on the thermal sensor #3 ramps up to hundreds at some 3d extensive games.

    i called the distributor yet they said its normal...:?
