Everything is on high except Shadows. It's just habit for me to turn shadows off on Radeon cards.
So far so good. I love this card. Playing ARK on high settings at around 40 fps give or take 2 or 3 fps depending on the situation. I'm not really worried about the 4k res as of yet. I think it will be awhile for me personally before I even care about 4k res gaming unless it becomes the standard which I think is still a few years away.
I can't speak for the Asus Strix card but im very satisfied with the XFX version of the card. I've played Ark and Paragon so far on the card and with auto fan it hasen't broken 65c yet. It's is also a very quiet card. I ran it up to 70% fan before I could even notice the sound of the fans on the card.
8/10 Card in my opinion so far.
