7950

Somewhat spontaneously, I’ve decided it’s time to upgrade Cyclone‘s graphics card (thereby rendering the name “Cyclone” a misnomer). I’ve moved from the NVIDIA GTX 460, which served me well, to AMD’s Radeon HD 7950. It’s bigger, hotter, louder, but altogether more of a beast than the 460. The specs (3 GB GDDR5/384-bit/2.87 TFLOPS) are impressive, and put the PS4 (and rumored next-gen Xbox) to shame.

And it will play Bioshock Infinite on “ultra” settings, which makes for a beautiful representation of the floating city of Columbia.

So far, so good.
