Summary

  • So far, I have not seen any serious issues with this card
    • Kombuster HD – fine
    • Furmark HD – fine
    • Heaven Ultra HD – fine, although I might have seem a brief artefact
    • Subnautica – fine
    • The main issue I noticed is that 3D Time Spy wont run against this card.
    • I cannot see anything unusual in GPU-Z, VRM efficiency seems fine.
    • Temperatures seem to peak at 75 degrees C
    • I do believe that the seller isn’t making it up, could be my test rig mounting the card vertically? Maybe there is a faulty BGA joint?
