    Here it's in German, though.

    This should be the english version, but I haven't checked.

    Should've compared to a non standard 5870, as there are many out there which compete with this on price, are overclocked and sport fancy coolers.

    On a different note its funny that in the original review of a stock 5870 didn't really sing its praises;

    even though it was as fast a 4870x2, but now its hereld in the hall of fame because and rained as the leading card for what seems like fxxxxxxg ages

    I must admit, I just bought this card following bit-tech's review and I must say I'm not disappointed. Card performs brilliantly and I'm yet to see any game that chokes it. It's connected to a full HD Sony 40" TV and it's brilliant. As per review, the cooler is very, very quiet, so much so that when I run folding@home the only thing I hear is chokes. It overclocks brilliantly too. I have no idea why temperatures where too high and reviewer needed to crank up the fan speed to 70%, I overclocked mine using EVGA's Precision tool to Core 756 and Shaders 1512 MHz respectively and it's still on whisper quiet 40% fan speed and temperature doesn't exceed 63 degrees at any time. That applies when I fold on both GPU and CPU in the Fractal Design R3 case.

    For folders: overclocked like that, card returns nearly 15000 PPD, which is indeed very good.

    And I didn't have any problem with the shroud, as I said even so overclocked the only thing I hear is chokes. Very highly recommended. :thumb:
