would you like to know that zotac & sapphire are the same factory, sapphire being the OEM for AMD reference cards... so no they are noname, zotac is probably just fineI have a very bad experience with these "no name" brands. Zotac, Colorful, Club3D etc. They may have improved over the years, but the bad taste remains. Almost every time I've seen one of these there were some retarded problems with them...
club3d is almost 20 years old, but i suppose they are independent just like visiontek
a lot of the names are actually under a bit of a duopoly of parent companies
basically, very few brands are independent nonames, also those parent companies with a ton of brands & totally global distribution end up pushing the sales numbers down for asus, msi, gigabyte since those 3 are independent (also not reference or engineering sample)
