Not latest tech but:With all due respect, Palit/Gainward always made high quality products, and there's nothing "low tier" about it. Enjoy.
Not always but last 10-15 years Palit/Gainward has done good stuff maybe.
Story from years ago. If you have ever owned Gainward Geforce 6800LE AGP, I would say it was disaster. These cards had so called black screen problem. Screen just would turn black when running 3D applications. I had two cards from Gainward. If somebody remembers Geforce 6800LE AGP-versions these where unlockable in Rivatuner.
First card didn't have anything to unlock and just crashing when more shaders/pixel pipelines where enabled and I did RMA it as screen turned black in most of 3D applications even as a stock. But second card was almost at the 6800 Ultra levels, overclocked nicely and pixel and shaders where unlockable to 16/5. 16/6 did work but clocks did result errors on screen. But card had also same black screen problem.
How did I get it running: Someone found there was two certain voltage testing holes on pcb, this is where you soldered capacitor between these holes and card overclocked nicely, fixed black sreen and if you had good capacitor installed->better the overclocking result.
Too bad I did sell this card years ago. I once was third in 3Dmark results in 6800LE category, until PCI-e and SLI results where listed in same category. I just miss this kind of tweaking.
