What is its performance ?

You need to make sure that you have ample space in your case to avoid disappointments when you find that it can’t fit inside. It looks wonderful and has protective plastic covering surrounding it. The plastic does feel a little bit cheap, but it does the job. With 8GB of 256 bit GDDR5 memory and a maximum clock speed of 1822MHz in overclocked mode, this graphics card will comfortably handle high resolution gaming at frame rates as high as 100fps. The tweaking is where the things get juicy because the Xtreme engine makes your work very easy and straightforward. You can tweak the card to meet whatever gaming requirements you have without any overclocking knowledge since it doesn’t involve any manual adjustment. There is a one click overclocking mode in the settings and two other modes (gaming mode and eco mode) to ensure that you get whatever you need at any particular point. It has three active fans with LED indicators to keep you aware of the current cooling status at any one time.
Conclusion: Should I buy it ?
When compared to other graphics cards like the GTX 970, this graphics card might appear to be a bit high on the price. However, you get what you pay for in this one. The performance is smooth and the cooling is incredible. If you already have the Titan X or the GTX 980 Ti, buying this might feel like a lateral move.
