  • Low Memory
  • Fan gets noisy above 50% speed, expensive
  • Low overclocking capacity
  • Fan is loud under load
  • Ran warmer than an HD5870 and an HD5850 during testing, Tiny factory overclock on the GPU seems more like a gimmick, but extra speed is never a bad thing, Not ASUS's fault, but new naming structure is confusing
