  • Conclusion: Although our rating and final score are made to be as objective as possible, please be advised that every author perceives these factors differently at different points in time. While we do our best to ensure that all aspects of the product are considered, there are often times unforeseen market conditions and manufacturer changes which occur after publication that would render our rating obsolete.

  • Excerpt: For gamers with multiple monitors or a 30-inch LCD (or those with healthy bank accounts who want the absolute best), this DirectX 11 graphics card is the most powerful you can buy.
  • Pros: Fastest gaming graphics card currently available, Improved power efficiency, Unlocked for overclocking
  • Cons: Too long to fit in many PC cases, Six- and eight-pin power connectors (and a robust power supply) required, Still no six-monitor support
