Owned for over 7 years, still runs everything fine. Outperformed my gtx 1060 whilst playing Ark: Survival Evolved. Best aging GC out there, now time to buy a 2080ti and have it age horribly.


Good

Bought it for ~300€ December 2012. Impossible to OC with the AMD tool due to bad chip, sadly. Still handles all modern games pretty well, but lately, with big open world titles like Conan Exiles, it runs into limitations. Most games previous to that I could play on ultra settings (except Shadows and Anti-Aliasing) with constant 30fps. Not that much, but well playable. But after 6 hard working years, it is time for a new one if you want, like me, to play coming games with nice graphic.

Высокий разгонный потенциал, после которого карточка взлетает по производительности очень высоко, Mantle и DirectX12. Идеальная карта по соотношению производительность/цена. Рекомендую брать со вторичного рынка—Oct '15
