none the less i do welcome this brix and definitely buying it but at the same time i do wish they sell an external add on that stacks on top of it for SLI or external GPU that actually have some guts.

and how would you power that...? rolleyes.gif
its quite a feat getting the horsepower in that small of a case , but it'll never be enough for some people, will it?


this isnt for the people that NEED 120FPS on max settings, this is for the people who travel who dont want to play on min settings at 20fps on some Lagptop, or for the people with limited table/ entertainment center space.

Take it for what it is.

just wait until they make a maxell/ haswell refresh version if this isnt enough power for you.
less power usage = more headroom for CPU/GPU power

I love this concept a lot. I have to travel a lot and leave my baby at home, and I can't play any games during my downtime on the road. This plus a semi portable monitor gives me all the productivity and healthy gaming I need. Don't understand the power complaints, if you want to run 4k or heavy games on max settings, wouldn't you just use a beast rig?

I've been throwing around the idea of an itx rig for a while just so I could game on the road, and the SHIELD was an option but this trumps that for me. Can't wait for some prices and benchmarks.

It's a pretty balanced card imo but I wouldn't expect this to run alot of games at 4K with the settings maxed out, perhaps low-medium dependening on how demanding the title is, and then you'd probably run into ram problems with 2GB, if it is the 2GB variant and also lack of horsepower. rolleyes.gif A bit silly of them to throw "4K" around.
It's a 760, not a 770 or 780, this isn't aimed at gamers who play at 1440p, I'm guessing it's aimed at 1080p minimum which it can do just fine in basically any game, I dont know why you would believe it would barely keep up on a 1080p screen when it can run almost any game out there perfectly fine, I'm presuming they chose the 760 for it's performance per watt ratio, it would require more power to push higher settings and resolutions, so much that many who posted in this thread struggled to believe they fit a 760 in there, let alone a 770 or 780 upwards.

If the 760 can barely keep up on a 1080p screen, does that mean all the owners of 750s, 660s, 650s and below can't keep up on a 1080p screen? If it isn't capable of meeting your needs then it's not aimed at you.

The 760 beating a 7950 is only due to a few games that is poorly optimized for amd. Performance per watt goes to maxwell. Even so the 670 have the same 170w tdp the 760 has and is more powerful.

My 670 cant even run half of my newer titles on max @ 1080p. At best it can only do medium any higher would just end up stuttering. Games like chivalry i can only run it at 720p low otherwise i get massive lags during combat and im using an i7 with the card.

Cards at lower tier would just have to sacrifice alot more detail and resolution.

I dont need 120fps ether. I just want minimum 30 fps medium setting @ 3440x1440. No doubt this is highly welcomed and like i said i want it regardless but preferably i want something that would atleast last a few years of gaming rather then something that is just enough and not upgradable.

I do have high tolerence levels for low fps as for dayz im only getting an average of 10-15fps on my desktop.

Etherway im getting it to replace my aging alienware m11x as my primary gaming system

a lot of speculation, just wait until they release more specs. smile.gif

Your doing it wrong. Your running a card significantly stronger than my own in sli and yet you have poorer frames?

My 460's have little trouble keeping up with most modern games at medium/high settings and 1920x1080. Only a few such as Crysis 3 or BF3/4 really make it struggle. And my current N760/OC definitely has no issues.

Not sure what you're doing with a 670 to make it have troubles at any game in 1080p.
