I bought these on a similar deal from Adorama a couple months ago. First pair they sent me, the left ear was dead. Second pair, the right ear was dead. Third pair, the right ear was dead. I asked for a refund at that point. Which I should really really make sure indeed was credited to me. Each...
I got this bad boy refurb on Woot a long time back now for $300. I'd been planning on sticking with the ancient CFL 24" I'd been using, but it was too cheap to pass up. It's been such an amazing delight having this monitor.
Reminder that the VRM's are way under-spec, way worse than reference,
Still tempted, but remember the recent thread- https://hardforum.com/threads/newegg-powercolor-red-devil-rx-480-8gb-190usd-ar-25usd-cash-back-free-civilization-vi.1917538/ .
Apparently the PowerColor RX480 design is awful and the VRMs overheat like crazy. Wouldn't be surprised to see similar...
Almost bought this for gaming, since my Samsung's 4K is way past my computer's capabilities. 32" might also be fun for gaming.
There don't seem to be VESA mounts though. My monitor arms might not be delighted about holding up a 32" but I think it'd work.
Tempted to try & go relive the days of my 4870x2, which too cost me $500.
But I'm super jazzed about the next GCN drop & want to play with Vulkan sooo not happening. Also, terrified of the power bill. ;)
Cool card though.
Keep in mind the 2.5" is a SFF-8639 aka U.2 aka SATA Express connector, not a traditional SATA connection. Unless you have a brand new server (edit: or some new desktops!) with 2.5" NVMe drive support, you'll need an adapter (such as one of these) to plug this in.
Super tempted to pick this up...
Oh man, I have a compact HD 4850 in a data-center box for some cloud gaming and GPGPU that needs an upgrade. Little too much power consumption to fit, unless it's significantly lower than the 190 watts TDP on the full size. Tonga! GCN 1.2! HSA! Bah.
Very tempting, especially with that 10yr warranty. 950 Pro's with their insane world hanging NVMe are still what I'm holding out for, even though I'll need either pcie<->m.2 adapter or a new system to use it. Only 5 years on the 950 Pro- maybe they don't trust their stacked VRAM + new controller...
