Review by RoccoSi
VTX3d? who is it? that was my first thought. As a matter of fact this card is identical to well known PowerColor 7950 PCS+. It is exactly the same card with the same amazing cooler. The only one difference that you can notice is the plastic cooler cover that is red instead of black and has different shape. Here you have some links (if you can speak German ;) if not you can just check pictures ) to compare VTX3D and PowerColor card:
So, you are buying truly amazing card. The factory overclocked core clock is 930MHz NOT 880! Memory 1250MHz (5000MHz effective).
This card scores 6800 in 3DMARK 11 out of the box.
However there is nothing easier to overclock this baby. You can use standard AMD Overdrive or even better MSI Afterburner:
Please notice that core voltage is unlocked for this card :)
But even with stock voltage (SIC!) and power limit +20% you can easy reach: core 1100MHz and memory 1500MHz (6000MHz!).
That gives you graphics score: 9870 in 3DMARK 11!!!
Wow! this is more that stock: GTX 660TI (7940), GTX670 (8200), GTX680 (8700), GTX 590 (9000), HD 7970 (9100) and even HD6990 (9600)!!
Off course this is an synthetic benchmark and not always reflects performance in games but gives you an idea how powerful this card is.
Temperatures after OC.
Idle: 27C Full Load: 79C. Even on full load fans are running on 20% - 1006RPM and you can not hear them. Amazing!
There nothing more to say just highly recommend this fantastic card.
On the end you can also check some PowerColor reviews:
OC Monster by AndyFalc
Out of the box in Unigene Heaven benchmark,average fps was around 20 @1080p full eye candy,but when over clocked I saw around a 35% increase. An over clocking monster and extremely good value. GPU from 830mhz to 1200 with ease.....357 of 558 people rated this review as helpful
