Editors Didn't Like

  • Like all ATI cards, it could use more memory bus width
  • Pricey (compared to international markets)
  • High power consumption at full load
  • Needs matching high end hardware to appreciate fully
  • Not the best price/performance
  • Tends to be noisy under load
  • Not much overclocking potential on our sample
  • Long card, might not fit all cases
  • DirectX 11 wont be relevant for quite a while
  • No support for CUDA / PhysX
