I came to NCIX that day to get a particular card which was out of stock, not knowing that this one was single fan as I didn't bother to check because i had no idea they made a single fan version of it. Now I have to buy an aftermarket cooler because it gets up to 92 after a while when overclocked, that's with a custom fan profile too. Haven't been able to confirm that this one can unlock shaders, will try eventually, this card is no slouch so it's not really needed unless ur a freak and running 3d eyefinity. Overall I am satisfied except for the high temps because of poor cooling.
This card has been awesome for me so far. It was my first AMD/ATI experience and so far I have not regretted it at all. NCIX was as usual fast in getting it to me and coupled with my Antec nine hundred case the temps idle around the low 40's and under load I am seeing somewhere around the high 60's. Runs WoW , SC2, LoL and TF2 at full everything at 1080 resolution and never has a problem. Coupled with my i5 760 and 8gb of DDR3 this thing flies quite nicely. It can get a little noisy if the fan speed picks up but I have just installed everything in my new case and I don't imagine the fan will be kicking in quite so much any more since it is a much better case for airflow and cooling. Can't unlock this particular card to the 6970 but it really isn't needed IMO. by the time this card can't handle what I want it too any more there will be much bigger and better out and it will be upgrade time again.
So far I'm very impressed with this card. The only game this is incapable of playing at decent speeds is Crysis 2 with the DX11 patch + high-res textures. However, this may change with future driver updates. I'll definitely be picking up a second card for crossfire when it's on sale again.
I upgraded from an ATI HD5770, and have seen a very noticeable increase in gaming performance. I am now able to max out the settings in all my games. For example, Crysis 2 on extreme settings gives me an average 40 fps (that's with an Intel i3-530 overclocked to 4ghz). No complaints at all about the performance of this card. Everything else (such as videos etc) run fine as well. The high temperatures are the only concern I have, although 85 degrees should still be ok for my card.
In fact my primary game is FSX with lots of addons, and this card does not improve the frame rate much (compare to my old 4770) (I'll say from 8 fps to 13 fps in JFK). I believe it's more on my CPU now (Phenom II X4 810 OCed to 3.25MHz but not 100% stable). Considering 1090T now...
And it starts to get laud when fan passes 50%... but I have 8 fans in total in my PC now so doesn't really feel it :(
I got this when it was on special for $229.99 plus another $30 USD mail-in Rebate so basically $200 for this card. I just couldn't resist. I actually own a XFX Black Edition 5850 HD already and being honest I notice very little difference between the two card. It could be myself but I do feel BF:BC2 looked smoother. I'm playing blueray files and it's same old smoothness.
Upgraded from a 4850 and found that this was worth the cost. Doubled my performance in cod4 from my 4850... at higher settings... I've even started playing around with SSAA now. But only in less intense games like cod4.
