When you're buying a card at such a low price, you expect certain features to be lacking, but we have to say that the VTX3D really looks cheap. Quite why they decided to remove the shroud is beyond us, and it certainly doesn't improve the aesthetics.

It reminds us of the ASUS HD4850, with a cooler sitting alone in an island of PCB. That's not a good thing.

At the business ends of the card we have a couple of DVIs, an HDMI and a DisplayPort, covering all the options. There is a DVI to VGA adaptor if you're still using a very old monitor.

This is why we're so hard on the looks of the VTX3D. The reference card includes the shroud and so at a glance it could be any of the many Radeon cards on the market. Whereas the VTX3D is unquestionably a cheap low-end card.

Agreed. Sadly we're approaching the point where failure is more of a regularity than success for AMD.Quote

Its the 1GB 7850 thats being discontinued, and thats the one thats right on the same sort of money as the 7790. Fuzzy logic IMHO.Quote

I don't like to be the one to complain but I'm finding it harder and harder to parse the graphs nice and easily. Is there a way we can get some sort of sorting going on?Quote
