Pros: Im glad that I got this one over the Eagle, this one has better cooling (based on personal research) and I wouldnt want my gpu to get hotter tbh. This has been a great experience, it came 2 days earlier from when it was supposed to, the card is great and Im absolutely in love with AMD software. Its a big fat upgrade from gt 730.
Cons: The shroud is a little too plasticky for my liking. Gigabyte aorus software is kind of unnecessary if youre using AMD Adrenalin, yet I dont think theres a way to control rgb without gigabyte software, which sucks.
Overall Review: I ran borderlands 3 at max settings, for 5 hours temps stayed around 55-65 yet it was super quiet. Im very satisfied with this purchase. Cant really ask for more. 5eggs
Pros: -Good value for mid-performance range -Solid build (metal backplate, triple fan, beefy cooler) -Great performance on 1080p, will hold up at 1440p -Just a bit of RGB
Cons: -Fans can get loud when cranked up. -Software defaults to "Zero RPM" passive cooling -Still relatively expensive for what amounts to a binned, OC'd 3660.
Overall Review: I wanted a card to upgrade a 1650 Super that was capable of running 1080p at extreme settings. This one works great. If you're on a tight budget I might suggest looking into a 6600 and overclocking it, you will get similar results for about $100 less. I spent the extra for a known name brand, better build materials (metal back plate, larger cooler). I get over 80-100fps on many of my games at highest settings. I was originally shopping for a 6600xt, but the prices for this newer model were actually lower than the older card and the newer card had better features (cooler, rgb, metal backplate). I have no complaints really about the card. Looks great, is quiet until put under heavy load and is not noisy until fans are over 50% speed. I don't think AMD's "Zero RPM" feature is beneficial. It shuts off the GPU fans until the temp hits 55c, then it will ramp them up. They say it's to help noise and reduce power consumption which may be scientifically true, but real-world I don't think it makes a real difference other than heating up your GPU faster. I suppose if you want to extend the longevity of your fans and don't game that often it might be useful. I tested just on and off with 1080p full screen YouTube - Fans off: Power Consumption 20W; Temp was 44C. Fans on minimum 1300rpm; Power Consumption 20W, Temp was 43C. No measurable power saving and was slightly cooler with fans on.
Pros: Beauty. Get this over the Eagle version for better OC and RGB.
Overall Review: 2x the performance of my GTX 1070. Thank you, AMD, for selling at MSRP and finally putting an end to the insane gpu pricing craze. This card is almost on par with an RTX 3070 for 400+ dollars less.
Pros: Definitely an improvement over older cards (rx580) At the time, May 2022 a good deal at roughly $440.
Cons: Noise, the fans after 40% speed are very loud Issue with white snowy screen when alt tabbing. (Might be specific to my setup)
Overall Review: This card works, I run 1080p and all my games feel better going from a RX580. And for the money, seemed like a good deal. That being said, I'm not sure I should have jumped on this card. My Dual fan GPU ran at decent temps and was quiet. So the switch is proving to be an annoyance, to the point I'm considering water cooling, but being this is a new card and a "budget" range. Blocks are unavailable or too pricy to justify The other more setup specific issue is white snowy screen when alt tabbing. Not sure why but it's an issue. Could be a cable or the monitor, but all was good with the old card. I wanted an upgrade and spending over 500 wasn't in my chosen budget. So I settled.. I would not recommend this card if you can spend 100 more, I'd look elsewhere. If you're on a tight budget, this card will perform, just be sure to use headphones.
