It's no rival for the mighty Titan but I thought it was a pretty decent price for a budget card. As far as I can tell, it's £30 cheaper than everywhere else - apart from Amazon, where it's OOS.

Product features:

Memory: 2 GB GDDR5
CUDA cores: 768
Clock speed: 1026 MHz
Memory bandwidth: 128-bit

Only in certain views. If you add the price to the price box it will show the price in the title in some views but not all; that's why you should add it to the title as well. Cheers

Better than an rx460 so well worth this price

you can get a gtx 1050 for about £100, uses less power too.

no you're better off saving for something better or just keep to your current card until you cant run games you want to play.

I agree. SLI is a waste of time as scaling is about +50% with the second GPU and many games don't support it. He should upgrade to an RX470 4gb for about £160, as it's *much* quicker than the RX460/1050Ti for nothing to a bit more.

Yes, yes, no. Your money would be better spent into a 460 or a 1050

I'm looking for a DX12 card to play gears of war 4 on my PC. I'm using an i5 2500k, 16gb ram etc but my GPU isn't DX12. would people recommend this card to play this and future Windows 10 games etc? Appreciate any advice!

1060/480 at the higher end or 1050ti/460 on the cheaper side.

Used 380s and 970s are going for around 130-140 ish, so have a look at those.

Same price on amazon if you're a prime member +free second day delivery

still a bad price when the 460 and 1050 is around this price

That is a lie. It's worse than RX460. Both slower and lacks half the features of it.

I currently have an HD Radeon 6870 and I am stuggling to run Battlefield 1 - would this card be much of an improvement on my current card for BF1?
thanks

Rolf Harris could draw frames faster. Get an RX470 4GB. 95% of the performance of an RX 480 4/8gb for £40/£80 less. Bargain now they've dropped the prices.

This is a good price - I just ordered one last night from Amazon even though it was showing as out of stock and I got the dispatch email this afternoon (it is still showing as out of stock) - from the non-Amazon Prime listing. I was looking for a 750Ti to upgrade my boys' PC but getting this for similar money seems a no-brainer. Hot.

​thanks for the advice, appreciate it. I ended up getting a gtx 970 4gb, it was a bit more expensive but I'm hoping will last me a while!!
