Runs most games at 1920 x 1080 resolution full HD with no hiccups
11 July 2010
Summary: I am running a machine with windows 7, an AMD phenom II quad core processor, and 8 gigs of Ram. I like to run my games at 1920x1080 wide screen. I can run games like Mass effect 2 or mirrors edge at full settings with no slowdown issues. Crysis also runs very well at this resolution with everything turned up and suffers only a slight frame rate drop.
Summary: I bought this card about 3 weeks ago. It replaced the hd3600 in my Dell studio xps 435. this card has great performance and very low power draw. The dell studio xps has only a 350 watt power supply and i have had no problems so far. i have played crysis maxed out in 1080x1920 with no problems. I usually use the dvi port, but i tried the HDMI port plugged directly to my tv. The HDMI port transmits video and sound.
Summary: Card has some issues which make the screen blur for a second. The card just came out and already a newer version came out which includes a copy of Dirt 2 ! (What a rip off) Waiting to buy some directX 11 ganes to really check it out!!
Excerpt: The HDMI is nice, Use it on a 40" LCD Tv as my monitor. I watch a lot of films, HD of course. Possibly its my lack of technical understanding, but I expected this card to be in a position to play Oblivion and WoW GFX maxed out, but it can not. This card falls a bit short for that. I dropped to 4-5 FPS in oblivion at instances, running at 1920x1080. And that was with mid-high GFX settings. Possibly its the sorts of games I play that strain the card?
Excerpt: Well one point about this graphics card is that it'll play anygame on the market on maxed out settings with 60 - 90 FPS :) I knocked one particular egg off lead to the first one particular was NOT DOA it shortley immediately after gradually began acquiring worse and worse then it went totally out following 24 hours....
Excerpt: Got two of them to crossfire. Run smooth and I get about 50-60 fps playing WoW. When I disable verticle sync (WoW feature) and such I have seen it get to about 150fps. Have had them for virtually two months now and no large concerns however. Kinda sucks that the games (WoW) have to be in Complete screen (Not windowed complete) to see the final results of crossfire. They get a small hot at occasions through intensive sessions averaging around 115 - 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
Excerpt: *Installation was uncomplicated. Didn't bother with drivers on disk, had currently downloaded the ATI driver update software, so ran that on initial bootup. Worked speedily, initial time, no difficulties.*Replacing a trusty (but dusty) 8600GT, anything is a lot shiner now. I'm mainly playing older games (e.g. Dragon Age, Mass Impact), but they're all maxed out with area to spare.*Impressive-looking cooling method if you care about that.
Excerpt: Nothing at all particularly specific... it performs and can handle games like Fallout: New Vegas just fine. I've got two monitors and just about every once in a although, my secondary will flash and blink through a screen re-draw. It could just be the drivers, but I in no way saw it with my old NVIDIA card (Windows 7 64 bit).
Excerpt: > bang for the buck>easily overclocked to 950ㄓ from 850゠ although maintaing great temps>runs all my games at max settings... so far>good temps (maxed out at mid 60 c for the duration of tension testing) and on a regular basis at mid 40 c through games and even much less for other use>runs silent even during stress testing > some dvd motion pictures are displaying @ fourɇ rather of 16ɍ aspect ratio and nonetheless could not figure out why.
Excerpt: Nice image on my HTPC, colors are brighter and the image is clearer. Of course an upgrade in a video card should do that so it's genuinely no surprise. As I stated in my earlier post the card did not want to function with my older PCIe V1. board. I knew it wasn't the video card, and it wasn't, it was just a comparability situation. But these cards shouldn't have that challenge, a PCIe bus is a PCIe bus supposedly. All video cards are suppose to be downward compatible.
