Well it looks good, and uh...that's pretty much it?! It doesn't have much going for it compared to the base model, so totaly not worth it imo.

Seems like the direct touch style heatsink might be causing a lack of efficiency cooling wise. Two of the heatpipes are barely making contact with the core, and certainly won't be cooling to their capacity. A thin copper baseplate with the heatpipes soldered to it may provide a better solution.

Hello, W1zzard! This is unrelated but I don't know where to post. Can your site put a "Print All" option on your review articles so that readers have the option to print-to-PDF the reviews? I for one don't have internet access at home so I read reviews offline. Thanks!

I must disagree wtih directX11 not being relevant... there are already several big games out using it. Sure 'limited DX11 titles at present' - but its hardly "DirectX 11 won't be relevant for quite a while" - its already relevant for bad company 2 and dirt 2 players, for example.

Solid review as always. Looks like an interesting card. Good to see more cards being released with 2GB.
Would love to see benchmarks of this card in 3-way CrossfireX... ;)

Hi Don!

No mate, of 2 reasons.

  1. I don't drink much alcohol nowadays, at most 4-6 beers / year.
  2. I have bean testing lots of different software firewalls and antivirus/spywares and I found Symantec Norton 360 Version 3.0 & 4.0 to be one of the best on the market just now.

Symantec Norton 360 Version 3.0
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2343092,00.asp

Symantec Norton 360 Version 4.0
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2359926,00.asp

I let PC Magazine Reviews speak for it self's.

By the way, what use is it to have a BIG "tool" (penis) when you might not know how to handle it.

I recommend you to stick to quality rather then quantity.


PS. Symantec Norton 360 Version 4.0 is not the ONLY security I have.

WOLF.

An excellent specification there twp - I'm incredibly jealous, can only dream of having that. I agree with Don and it's a massive kick in the balls to put Norton on there, if anything I'd go with NOD32 - best ever AV program IMO.

Gutted to hear you don't have a camera but still, I look forward to 'seeing' your (benchmark) results.
