Metro: Last Light was benchmarked with very high image quality settings with the SSAA set to off and 4x AF. These settings are tough for entry level discrete graphics cards, but are more than playable on high-end gaming graphics cards. We benchmarked this game title on the Theater level.

    Bit less than 950, hence the large price drop these days. R7 370 is the most power per dollar of any gaming card at the moment.

  • Didn’t know if its the exact sample, but I did run into same troubles OC this MSI, seems to be on full lockdown but beside a glitch in firmware (since others managed to apply some OC) http://www.pcmhz.com/teste-reviews/placi-video/4021-msi-r7-370-gaming-2g-review

    Well, 40dB is not very silent. When sit in a silent room, that will become too noisy.

    On the other hand, this is not too bad. For example, I have a Chieftec PSU, and it seems it wants to fly somewhere when working.

    Anyway, I like this card for its price and performance (http://hardware.nl/msi/v305-030r.html).

    • 40dB is a good margin for a silent VGA, of course, you can have one with passive cooling 🙂 Anyway, on a full desktop setup you’ll have other components that are a bit beyond 40dB (PSU, CPU cooler etc).

        NO!))))
        I would like to have a system that doesn’t sound louder than 35dB, that is nearly perfect quiet noise))) You could even sleep.
