As the card does not throttle in their "MAX" category.


Yes, in that review you have the MAX setting and that's the only one that should be considered

Anything mid range I guess

I wouldn't buy an i3 for gaming though , i5 for the four cores

Yes dx11, but no for vulkan

no, midrange is GTX1050 / RX470.
cards that performs faster than GTX950 or R9-370, but slower than GTX970 or R9-390.
