Pros: Drivers! Dual Bios! Unlockable! AMD! Cooler then Nvidia's 560ti! And Performs Better with the 2gb Vram!
Cons: Lolwut? How is this option still here?
First off, this Card is way way cooler then Nvidia's 560ti Hawk! (2 fans with a huge heatsink) This card was 65C MAX, on Crysis (1) everything set on highest, The Hawk was 79C MAX, Again let me repeat myself (1 fan 65C max) and (2 fans 79C max) Disappointed with you MSI (Nvidia's manufacturer of the Hawk) I have never owned a High end card with VisionTek but with these temps, I am extremely happy!
Now with the FPS/Performance. I got in BF3 (multi) Again Everything is maxed out at 1200P 40 FPS and higher. With the 560TI It was a good 18-23FPS, Single cards, everything maxed out Drivers all updated. There is a huge difference between 1gb Vram and 2gb Vram. Only get 2gb with this badboy.
Now the drivers, AMD's drivers don't crash at all! nvidia's drivers crash once a day (maybe more) I tried the new beta versions with my 560ti and it stopped the crashing for a few days then it starts again. I am not making this review to Bash nvidia, I am just stating the truth and my experience with these cards. I like nvidia but they just have to step up and start making good cards. The 4 series where just Awesome! But with the 5 series the problems started.
Almost forgot to add, with the Dual Bios you can Unlock it to a 6970, for even greater performance!
Please note: the 6970 has the same power requirements so don't be alarmed!
Thank You for reading my huge review about this product. Hope my next card will be nvidia and hope they will change there BS. - RussianHak
PS: I got the 560ti Hawk NEW, The 6950 Used (With a W/C Block) from a great member of this forum.
