Amazing bit of kit, 10 Jun 2013
Going from a HD4870 1GB 256bit, i was a bit skeptical about going to this card, ok its much newer but it has 128bit..anyway it was a a fantastic upgrade..
The f12012 benchmark test gave this result for the HD4870 - av_fps="34.284088" min_fps="26.064951
and gave this for the 650 ti - 49.413887" min_fps="37.272678
impressed i was to say the least, that was on high setting, whats that, you want the ultra settings result, ok -
hd4870 - av_fps="31.529594" min_fps="24.311975
650ti - 40.782360" min_fps="33.920715
ok sorry for boring you. the other games ive throw at it are battlefield 2 and metro 2033,well battlefield you would expect it to handle as its an oldish game, i havent seen it drop below the 60 (vsync is on so it cant go above it either..metro 2033 is handles amazing, cant really give you a fps figure as ive been messing with the settings alot and had different results, but even on medium setting that game looks amazing..
also there is room to OC this card, i got my best OC with MSI afterburner with these settings: -
on the benchmarking programs i got impressive results, F1 maybe 2-3 better FPS. but it depends on the game you may get better results on other games..
the voltage can go higher but i found it got unstable after pushing anything higher, so ill stick to these settings, the voltage increase isnt huge so the temps shudnt go much higher
for the money its an amazing card..i sold my PS3 to move over to pc gaming but havent got and wasnt prepared to spend mega bucks on a top end card, i personally thinks this gves better resuls than a ps3..
gonna get black ops 2 soon, ive seen clips of people running it on this card so shudnt be an issue..
also you can relly grumble at a 3 year warranty..
i forgot to mention the size, wow, its no longer than the solt clip at the end..its like a pocket rocket this card
EDIT..15/07/13..THIS PRODUCT HAS NOT BEEN RECALLED AS STATED ON ANOTHER REVIEW
