One reason to wait a bit with your purchase is that this month both AMD and NVIDIA will launch their new high-end products, which will certainly have very competitive performance and pricing. Your Username or Email Address: This means that while overclocking memory, the chips on the back will get hotter and hotter and the ones on the front stay cool, effectively limiting the memory overclock.

But in any case the benchmarks show multi-GPU rendering is far from developed at the moment. Both overclocks are good, I have a feeling that additional memory overclocks would be possible if the memory on the back of the card would be cooled as well.

Please don’t quote stuff from HardOCP. We also included a single Radeon HD in our comparison. This means that the core further from the fan could be getting a dose of warm air from the earlier core.

GDDR3 memory is used instead of GDDR4, though the architecture remains the same, with the internal bit ring bus and the bit wide interface with the memory chips. 38702x the wagon, sorta. Most if not all review sites are biased to one or the other i trust people who buy the cards more as they using their machines day in day out and play the games, you can soon get a idea from 2 or 3 people who got them in the forums what the cards are like.

At idle, it is fairly quiet and should pass the noise test for most fashest.

Sapphire’s card uses higher clock speeds, an extra pump and a bigger fan 387×2 causes the total power draw to increase by about 10 Watts which isn’t that much.
