It can play most games on 1080 but it has startup issues

Freezes every 15 min whilie playing, and stays freezes for about 30~60seconds. There are games that you cant recover, like CS-Go. You're forced to restart the game, losing points. Its worse when playing a ranked. The only workaround is to DOWNCLOCK. No new updates or over the years... And the "wattman" restarts the configs, so you have to remember to downclock always before play.

Was good back in 2014 as my GPU but when I went for GTX 10 series, it is 1.5 times better!

with the correct ram manufacturer, aka hynix and a voltage overclock capable design, and a strong cooling solution, this is a powerful and futureproof gpu, 1625 base memory clock that could be pushed to 1750 and a core clock of 1188 that could be pushed to 1300, which made this 5 year gpu as fast & as strong as the 2gb RX460
