    Soon™.

    End of this month, and then June + July will be swarmed by 1080s and 1070s reviews, you can be sure of it. :giggle2:

    Bit late, but, price is ok for such a product. CF them for full-details 60fps I guess, but, if you're going to do that, then, might as well get R9 390 that has 8GB ram.

    It's funny how a GTX 760 beats it in Grand Theft Auto: V.

    Even a single 7970Ghz Edition from 4 years ago beats it.

    It's direct competition would be the GTX950, which it trades blows with. Again, the GTX 950 is a few £ more, but, I would go with the GTX950, as overall, I think it's a few frames better and uses a "lot" less power (AMD 115watts vs Nvidia 90watts).

    Here's cheapest versions at ocuk;

    Also, in the article; The Witcher III highlighted card says 4GB. Might be an error. No GTX950 numbers to compare either in this one.

    Amd really needs to push out the new generation of gpu... I cant believe how nvidia beat them to the punch again... If only nvidia wasn't such an awful company, I would actually be happy to own one.

    Why do board partners even bother putting out lower end boards such as this?

    Are there seriously enough people that haven't a clue about what is actually available that they can get for a similar price that will blow them out of the water?

    If somebody asked me about video cards, I would tell them to save up a bit and get a higher end card or buy a used card off of Ebay.

    1080p is actually pretty sad on a 2GB card in a lot of games unless you turn down a lot of stuff.

    This card is in effect a higher clocked 7850. I tried a pair of 7870s a couple years ago and then sold them and went to 7970s because the performance of the 7870s was so underwhelming.

    If you are in the market for a card this speed, you might as well just buy a used 7850 2GB card off of Ebay for about half the price this is new.

    i was thinking the same until it give away on pro card and i have been forced to get my 1st quadro...

    then i realized that i have been missing a lot...

    sometime it can be red sometime green or even blue... right now green are the best (and start the pre-summer sale in a few... so if you need better for less...)

    btw if you are more red the last sapphire R9 290 in bstock are at 169 Euro... (you know what i would take isn't it? ;) )...
