Without doubts a great card, but the price is only for those who want the best only and can throw the money at it 😀

Dear lord the lights will dim when you get it going.
Sadly, the powerful hardware is spoiled by mediocre drivers. Frame-rate stuttering all over the place.
Great for OCL computing, though.
Definitely a better compute monster than Titan for the same price but besides that rather *meah* a bit late AMD
