Beast of a GPU
April 25, 2018
Upgraded from an HD7950 and this is obviously way more powerful.
-Beastly max's everything out at 1080p, In AC origins literally everything is set to its maximum, rendering at 2715 x 1527, getting about 55fps avg no OC.
-Quiet AF. Seriously, maybe its just because the comparison was a super noisy windforce 7950, but this thing can barely be heard even when it ramps up, which;
-it barely needs to ramp up the fans because this thing stays so cool. Barely reaches 70c, seriously does not even reach it, in any game. Even with gpu at 99% use for extended times, and this is all on air/ fan cooling.
- More then zero rgb (but not by much).
-Price. Right off the bat I paid about $200 more then I should have for this and could have gotten a 1080 if prices were normal. Oh well. I bought crypto in 2014 so it going up and offsetting gpu prices is no biggie, I hope it keeps going up ;).
-RGB control is terrible. Seriously. The light itself is fine and nice, but the control you have over it is almost zero, and thats when the software works. Rainbow or color cycle? no. Change brightness? no. Change speed of animations? no. Its quite sad how little control they give you when its more then likely available in the hardware (like color cycle for example).
Overall this card is a nice quiet cool beast. A perfect upgrade, if only ill timed due to current pricing (unless crypto moons some more, then get in now!)
