Funny how it's "...out of date," but still outperforms the new GTX 1650 in ALL categories, shy lighting which it loses by 8% (it stomps the 1650 everywhere else--by upwards of 29%). Great card--one of the most stable they've built.

I kinda have like the AMD drivers more, because they are cheaper and function almost the same
