I got a crappy 4890 back(not officially part of the bad batch, but know to be of MUCH lesser quality than the 4890 I had), I offered a compromise to a 5830 or a proper RMA and give me a 4890 which had the features my old one had. They told me to kindly f off, I told them I will do my best to make sure no one I know will buy XFX due to how they treat their customers. I'm not alone in this, ask Pioneerisloud or Blitz6804, or hell, any other of numerous OCN members who've been screwed over by XFX.
lol umad bro?
the 5830 is a tad more powerful than my old 4890. i see it in crysis, JC2, and in 3Dmark vantage. i get moar points!
my XFX card actually DOES have voltage control, i unlocked it with TriXX and it seemed to be working.
and my MSI one DOES have it too, its a TWIN FROZR II!
you should have raged at them like i did. thats the only way to get what you want from XFX from my experience.
i still kinda miss my ref 4890's VRM, Memory temperature sensors and easy voltage ctrl...
i wish ATi made reference 5830s.
