video card choice

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

i know everyone says that different companies with the same core gpu will work the same, but in www.versus.com i have a prob between 3 cards:

powercolor red dragon radeon rx 570 4 gb

gigabyte radeon rx 570 4 gb

sapphire radeon rx 570 4 gb

 

now they are almost identical (i mean, all of them are in the range of $168.14 +- $0.5)

 

which one do you like more? or is it purely based on what's prettier?

 

another thing to think about is that "red dragon" is from amazon (which we all know and love) and the others are from newegg (which i never bought from and i dont really know how it operates and all of that) so its another thing to think about

the site you should never use, it tries to do as much as possible and end up being shitty at everything

I like the sapphire pulse mose. Gigabyte card is cut down more than the other 2 while the smaller fans on the Red Dragon in theory makes it a bit worse than Sapphire's larger fans.

 

OC or not in the name doesnt mean you couldnt overclock, it only means whether the GPU is programmed to run higher frequency at stock than the reference card.
