4 out of 5 stars

PC Advisor describes this chip's performance as excellent and gives a nod toward the manufacturer's success at improving this model's energy efficiency. Yet they go on to describe how full today's market is with high performing mid-range GPUs and that this little chip's big problem is that its competitors have considerably lowered their prices.

4.5 out of 5 stars

TechRadar found this card to put on an acceptable performance for an acceptable price. Reviewers also remarked that its great overclocking capabilities are worth pointing out, yet they also say that while it's not overpriced and performance is reasonable, they feel that it is outdone by another graphics card on the market.

Without final score

Although quicker, cooler and a bit more efficient that last years GTX 470 card, this graphics card probably isn't enough reason to pay for the upgrade if you already own a decent model from last year. For owners of older cards though, now might be the time to splash out on a new mid-range card. Tom's Hardware liked, but were not overly enthusiastic about this card.

"very good" (5 out of 6 stars)

Value for money: "very good" (5 out of 6 stars), "Recommended"

PC Pro considers this chip to be at the top of its class, offering all the high-resolution playing power needed to enjoy the latest titles, yet for a price that's surprisingly sensible. A generous amount of overclocking headroom, cool and quiet operation, reorganised stream processors and more efficient transistors make for a powerful perfomance that's tough to beat.

"Best Buy"

Expert Reviews granted this card its 'Best Buy' award, declaring it not only an excellent deal for the price, but also a step ahead of the AMD competition when you pick it up already overclocked or adjust it on your own. They also note that it's greatly improved since its predecessor, boasting more base clock speed and memory, while featuring better parallel processing power.

"excellent" (10 out of 10 points)

Value for money: "excellent" (10 out of 10), "Excellence"

Bit-Tech declares this to be a solid buy, describing it as an excellent mid-range performer, that not only boasts outstanding stock-speed, but also amazing potential for overclocking. It's also accompanied by what reviewers consider to be one of the best reference coolers they've ever laid eyes on, and it's competitively priced.
