ASUS RoG MATRIX 5870 2GB Video Card Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
X-bit Labs have posted a review of the highly customized ASUS MATRIX 5870 2GB graphics card, which is part of the Republic of Gamers product line.
Here's what they had to say:
"Summing everything up, the ASUS Matrix 5870 looks like the best choice for an overclocker or enthusiast as it offers such control over the graphics cards parameters as no other manufacturer can offer. The LED highlighting will look nice in a system case with a side window. But if you are an ordinary gamer and want a Radeon HD 5870, we wouldnt recommend this version to you. It is rather noisy and its power consumption is comparable to the faster Radeon HD 5970 while its price is going to be higher than that of most other Radeon HD 5870 variants. If you want a graphics card for gaming and nothing more, you may prefer the Gigabyte GV-R587SO-1GD or even any Radeon HD 5870 with reference cooler."
This is a very impressive card, but if you want to hit the highest possible clock speeds the GIGABYTE SuperOverclock and MSI Lightning.
