Most helpful reviews

James, Bristol IT professional and gamer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Beautifully engineered, small touches like a solid plastic cover for the pcie connector strip to protect the card when it is out of the case and a solid metal plate covering the usual circuit board on the side opposite the fans make it a joy to install without worry. It is also noticeably shorter than other cards making it easy to fit into a case with less space.

Very quiet, and only takes a single 6-pin power connector to run - my previous 7970 required 2x8pin connections.

Good performance, although I am running it on an 3 year old A10 APU based system, so the system is holding back the card's capacities, it runs everything I have tried it on in Ultra settings at 1920x1080 without breaking a sweat (or getting noticeably warm or noisy).

Good value, especially for a card with 4GB of ram rather than the usual 2 GB.

Software bundled with it is unintrusive and shows some decent info (fan speeds, temp, clock, %usage etc). Installed itself quite happily on windows 10 with no issues or extra drivers needed beyond what windows provides and the included CD.

Full DirectX12 capabilities mean it should be good for gaming for years.

Angelina, Average tech fiend gamer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic little card, especially at the discounted price.

Playing all my games on 1080p high/ultra settings (DOOM) being the latest with a near constant 60fps.

Same with Rocket League, no more stutter :).

Replaces a palit gtx 460 1gb.
Bad points:
Although a 4gb card only something like 3.75gb can be potentially used.

Unlikely to be an issue at 1080p but worth noting.
