Asus HD 7870 DirectCU II TOP Review

Tech2
4 November 2012
  • Summary: Asus has priced the HD 7870 DirectCU II TOP edition at Rs.25,000, which is not bad considering it’s a special edition card. AMD launched the HD 7870 to fill the gap between the HD 6970 and the HD 7950 and it does just that. At this price point, it beats the Nvidia GTX 570 by a good margin and is follows close on the heels of the GTX 580, which is a lot more expensive.

  • Conclusion: The Asus HD 7870 is certainly a worthy consideration if you have about RM 1.2k to spare, and in my opinion I would work better than having a dual HD 7770 setup that costs around RM 1.2k as well. As seen, the Asus HD 7870 is providing almost always 2x the performance of the GTX 460 (will add HD 7770 new benchmarks later).

ASUS Radeon HD 7870 DirectCU II 2 GB

techPowerUp!
30 March 2012
  • Summary: We were positively surprised by AMD's new Radeon HD 7800 Series in our launch day review. Since then nothing has changed. The ASUS HD 7870 Direct CU II uses the same reference design PCB, adds a bigger cooler and increases clock speeds significantly. Going from 1000 / 1200 MHz on the reference design to 1100 / 1250 MHz on the DC II resulted in a real life performance improvement of about 5%.
  • Pros: Good performance increase, Overclocked out of the box, No price increase for overclocking, Some additional OC headroom left, Quiet in idle, Native full-size HDMI output, Adds support for PCI-Express 3.0 and DirectX 11.1, Support for multiple independent audio streams
  • Cons: Noisy under load, Price too high to be competitive, Increased power consumption, CCC Overdrive memory limits too low

The best motherboard doesn’t necessarily have to be the one that has the most of everything, simply because some of us don’t use a great number of capabilities that a device has.

26 March 2013
  • Summary: XFX довольно высоко поставила планку для конкурентов со своей видеокартой Radeon HD 7870 Black Edition. Но Radeon HD 7870 DirectCU II TOP ASUS V2 показала результаты ничуть не хуже (почти), что связано с высококачественными компонентами и усиленной системой питания. Да и не будем забывать про мощную систему охлаждения DirectCU II. В частности, мы высоко оценили производительность системы охлаждения собственного дизайна ASUS.
  • Pros: Тихая работа, Приличный потенциал разгона, Высокий уровень заводского разгона
