Best Card Ever

Kostyantyn K., Newegg
7 January 2015
  • Summary: ASUS designed this card to be the fastest single-GPU video card on the market and they achieved that goal and went beyond. ASUS took the factory design and threw it out. ASUS designed an entirely custom card. The only thing on this video card that is part of the original design is the GPU.
  • Pros: Have 2 of these in Crossfire.. maxed out most games on 1440p.. crazy overclock-ability. Look Sexy and Beast!
  • Cons: NONE

$500 card that over heats watching YouTube

Fred W Christie, Amazon
17 October 2014
  • Summary: Here is the email I sent them.... I'll update this when they respond... There's nothing more frustrating than a company that doesn't stand by its product. I didn't just buy a graphics card I bought an ASUS ROG Card. I Also bought the ASUS Maximus V FORMULA for $300.

Extreme artifacting out of the box.

Chef Soderstrom ":]", Amazon
26 January 2014
  • Summary: Purchased orig. as a litecoin mining card, but ended up swapping it as my primary card. Anytime things got really heavy in game (multiple characters) things would end up stretching/bugging out and artifacting. I searched online and apparently the 7970s are well known for this product.

Can't Crossfire with air cooling.

Earl A., Newegg
30 December 2013
  • Pros: Fast Card
  • Cons: Hot alone by itself and I have the side of my case open. I just built a new system and bought 2 of these to crossfire. Well you cannot crossfire them because they sit too close together and the top card gets extremely hot. And if you want to move the bottom card down a slot you need a 120mm cross...

Awesome card, but even better on water...

Derrick B., Newegg
14 November 2013
  • Summary: Water cooling my Asus 7970 Matrix Platinum with a custom bracket to retain the MATRIX LED shroud. Overclocked to: Core 1275MHz Memory 1850MHz (7400MHz Equivalent) Max temp using Furmark = 52c, Normal temps while gaming is 45c. Running three 24" monitors in Eyefinity with no problem at all.
  • Pros: Performance, Aesthetics, Brand, 20 Phase Control. This car is amazing for the price to performance ratio.
  • Cons: Triple Slot if running more than 3 in a system. Direct CUII Heatsink in my opinion is the limiting factor for this card. It does all it can on air, but once water cooled or LN2, that is when this card really starts to stretch it's legs. The only other thing about is card is, it is a power hog. Fo...

Asus and Newegg bad combo

Douglas M., Newegg
6 November 2013
  • Summary: Buy locally. From now on its up to Mirocenter to make my purchases. I can deal warranty issuesm locally as to having to wait weeks to find out that there is no support.
  • Pros: Has the ability to drive 6 monitors. Looks impressive. Lots of memory
  • Cons: Looks are deceiving. Dead from the start. Took took too long to detect bad product. Motherboard bad from newegg and could not test video board. Rebate time was running out so sent in for the rebate (rebate offer was over 10/30). When motherboard came back, installed it and no video. Found an olde...
