On release it was amazing. a couple years later, obviously it has become a budget level card.
It is dont OEM comparation, R9 280X and is better in DX12.
not sure about that, i bought it about a year ago and for instance on ultra on BF4 with resolution scaling at middle around 100% its only hitting around 40fps on a good day its a good card but some games just dont like it much
budget???? u high bro... this thing should be on the best pcs around. 91fps on crysis 3 aint no joke
This is good for a budget pc, its cheap and great for what it can do.
This thing is a killer for its price and add in Amazon and you know what I'm talking about ;) It's even at a discount deal on Amazon right now http://amzn.to/1xzyCIU
XFX version is not 850mhz.. Its clocked to almost 1080mhz.
