MSRP: ??? (probably a tad higher than the reference $399 price point)

Pros Cons
  • Factory Overclocked
  • 5-phase power and 8+6 pin PCIe connectors
  • Effective and Quiet Cooling Solution
  • Game changing performance – outmuscles more expensive competition (hope AMD responds fast)
  • PCIe 3.0 support (officially only on Ivy Bridge platforms)
  • Minimal box bundle and lack of display convertors
  • No software voltage control
  • Blue PCB not to everyone's liking / hard to pair with colour scheme of recent motherboards
  • Only 2GB of RAM – will choke in high resolutions or intensive scenarios
