Pros: 3 DPs hooked up to three 165 hertz monitors. i went it to changed the settings, and it already was at 165 hertz. Apparently packaging!!
Cons: i have to crank some games down to 144 hertz because it is just too crazy on 3 screens!! Oh bummer lol. I came out to meet Gary, the UPS driver. He comes from the back, clips the corner with his shoulder, and BAM, on the deck, BAM to the step, BAM to the ground! I FREAKED OUT on him. he was all casual like, oh i can come back and pick it up or you can file a claim. I'm like GARE, i have been waiting over a year for cards to come down, i did endless research, and i finally decide on one and its like dropped at the end. Now if i didn't work for a cross dock facility and watch loaders toss stuff, or know from just watching customs going thru boxes, or postal video of under cover vids i would have refused it. It was rocked though! AND I MEAN ROCKED!! I haven't had a problem yet, and hope not to.
Overall Review: I replaced my Sapphire Dual-X R9 280X OC 3 gig with this. I had that forever, and it still cranks! But i got MORE than my money from it, and wanted to upgrade. i added a screen shot of streaming, playing a game that skips on my MSI 570 8 gig. seriously! JOKE!, AC Odyssey and all setting on ultra and its nice. It was $389 after the instant, a no brainers. I could have picked up a 12 gig Nvidia or a cheaper MSI (no more) but the 12's had one or LUCKY 2 DP, and the cheap MSI cannot handle most games. This card cranking out 77 frames (random shot) on ULTRA with ACO tells me it will play EVERY GAME EVER MADE AND EVEN the ones you get for free when you buy a GPU. IMO anyway. Over 25 years of building, repairing, upgrading, networking, and hosting and designing sites, take my word for it, unless you are doing something crazy you do not need 12 gigs, and you do NOT want 4 gigs today for gaming! If you have the means this is choice, but you cant go wrong with the 6600 if it is %40 or more cheaper or you do not want 3 DP. i have 3 viotek 24 inch monitors and eyefinity is awesome!
Pros: Card works well for 1440p (mostly dirt rally) and install / drivers work well.
Cons: ASUS rebate seems to mostly be a scam. After months of waiting for them to hear get back my $180 rebate they finally claimed too much time elapsed (even though they have had it in their system and my letter with the UPC from the box for months). Just assume all rebates from ASUS are not valid.
Overall Review: Card is nice and reasonably fast. ASUS rebate is a scam so I overpaid by over $150.

Pros: Solid middle of the road card for a middle of the road price Meets or exceeds my 1080p needs Quiet (relative to what I am used to)
Cons: Doesn't act like a heater in the winter
Overall Review: Replacing my aging R9 390X. Noticed an immediate performance boost compared to the old card (as expected) Card runs quieter and cooler all while outperforming my old one. I bought ASUS because I've had awesome customer service with them in the past and because it suited my needs for casual gaming and some light rendering needs. I do not regret my purchase. If you've made it this far you've probably already seen the benchmarks, you probably know performance wise what you're in for and this review likely will not sway your opinion.
Pros: -No RGB -AMD software is really good as long as it isn't the "full" install for overclocking and stuff like that -ASUS software is great so far, much prefer GPU tweak over afterburner/riva personally -Stays very cool, cooler than other people claim. Maybe I got lucky -Set everything to max and relax with everything I've thrown at it -Faaaastest budget card I've seen in a while. Replaced my 1650 and got that when my buddy had a 1060 3gb and we had our back and forths on which one was better for what but I ended up coveting his processing power and he coveted my Vram, now between this and his 3080ti I just can't imagine paying 4 times what I did for not 4x the power. His is better, for sure, but not enough to wish I'd gotten one even if it was in my budget.
Cons: -Learning curve from Nvidia switch and they both have there own fun names for things so I have to look up "How do I 'x' with AMD card. Not a critique of the card itself and I'm sure it works the other way around -AMD software team says "if windows already made the setting we'll just send you there" ie. multiple monitors -Doesn't want to do native 4k 144hz so good but I have 1080p monitor anyway so it'll last me some years -The occasional odd stutter when things are getting loaded in. There are settings that help a lot but for some reason in some games turning around real fast feels like there's a skip. Best fix I've found is setting a soft frame rate limiter through AMD software to 144 or 72 instead of letting it go hogwild, which it will. This thing loves to pump frames and stay at 99% usage -No RGB
Overall Review: it's a great card but the MSRP isn't. Faster and more stable than you'd think especially after all the bad Radeon reviews throughout the years. I'm really glad I bit the bullet and spent money I shouldn't have spent on something I didn't need cause whoowhee Elden Ring has never been so pretty. I'd recommend this card to anyone that can snag one for $220 USD or less, I got mine for $195. At the price it sits now at $410 though, it might be worth some extra bucks to get something that can pretend to do raytracing. Has the same power as a ps5 on paper so that's neat and helps you defend your purchase to your SO
Pros: -Price after rebate, taxes and discounts came out to $150 -Rebate was processed in less than a month -Breaks 10,000 score in 3DMark Time Spy -Cool that AMD found a way to make a 128-bit bus work in TYOOL 2023
Cons: -AMD Relive is much worse than NVidia Shadowplay for clipping highlights -Raytracing just isn't feasible in many games -Plastic backplate
Overall Review: Wanted something to replace my 1060 for MW2 on Black Friday and this was the best-priced option. More than doubled my framerate (went from an unstable 60 to a stable 120+). Easily a 5-star product with only a few compromises to reach its price.
