Expert Review

While it may not give you the performance of something like a GTX 970 or 980 Ti, this model still offers great performance at a very reasonable price. You get 2GB of GDDR5 memory with this card, which runs at 6.6GHz, though it should be noted that it's only 128-bit memory. While that's not the best RAM you can find in a video card, it's pretty good and should be more than sufficient for a lot of builds. The core clock speed on this card is quite nice, running at 1140MHz minimum in the default Gaming mode, with a boosted speed of 1329MHz for excellent overall performance.

You can run the card in OC mode, which gives you a base GPU clock speed of 1165MHz that you can boost up to 1329MHz for even better speed. With 768 CUDA cores you'll still get great performance out of this card, especially with a couple of them in SLI and each one has much lower power requirements than something like a GeForce GTX TITAN X. Considering the fact that you can pick up two of these for half the price of a single EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti, this is a great budget-friendly option that still delivers solid performance.Rating: 4/5
