Conclusion: In the age where anyone can appreciate good power efficiency, it’s almost upsetting to see how much wattage any graphics card manages to pull from our walls. Even the lowest-end models don’t seem too impressive when compared to the power efficiency of a CPU, but that’s how it is, at least right now.
Pros: Though minor, Sonic version is faster than stock model., Temperatures are much lower than cards with reference coolers., Includes support for DVI, VGA, HDMI and DisplayPort., Priced-right at around ~$270USD.
Cons: Doesn’t include 1GB of GDDR5 like some newer HD 4870’s., The cooler is a bit bland – it needs a flashy sticker.
