Rebate is a giant pain

John S., Newegg
13 January 2014
  • Pros: The card performs as expected. Zero complaints for the hardware.
  • Cons: Purchased this card with a $50 rebate during Black Friday. My claim was rejected b/c the ASUS Rebate Center incorrectly scanned my documentation. I emailed the Rebate Center to ask about the rejection and was directed to call. I called 3 times, across 3 different days and each time was on hold fo...

Performance was poor

Steven B., Newegg
18 November 2013
  • Pros: Cant really think of any to be honest
  • Cons: For the price of this card it is trash. Ran super hot and also didn't see any better performance out of this card in any aspect compared to a nVidia 550 Ti.

DOA

Michael J., Newegg
5 October 2013
  • Summary: Will inform everyone once I get the new card in and setup.
  • Pros: The card was DOA but New-eggs customer support made me very happy. They are shipping me a new card right away. That is the only reason I'm giving this 3 eggs.
  • Cons: It was DOA. I got the card in on Friday evening and was looking forward to getting it in and running. But got the 8 beeps from the motherboard and it was dead.

Drivers.... :(

Anonymous, Newegg
13 July 2013
  • Pros: Streams console games at very high quality and runs well.
  • Cons: Everytime I play any pc game, the game freezes after a few minutes and I get the message "Drivers have crashed and successfully recovered". Unless anyone can help me fix it I'm debating on returning this card soon.

Buyer Beware

Joseph N., Newegg
21 March 2013
  • Summary: Fool me once with marketing shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. I hope my review helps single display gamers and gamers looking for a next level multi monitor experience make an informed choice.
  • Pros: This is an updated version of Asus Radeon HD 6870, which came in two different versions. This version will only support two monitors at a time. If a one monitor solution is your gaming goal expect good things. If you want to run duel monitors, this card will handle that pretty much out of the box...
  • Cons: Like the previous generation this card does not support HDMI or mini-displayport. If you are looking for a 7870 model that will handle 3x monitors in crossfire mode, look at some of the other models offered.

This card...

James G., Newegg
14 March 2013
  • Summary: This card would be exactly what I want if these issues were not here, and its possible it could be fixed via driver updates, if only ATI was on the ball like nvidia...
  • Pros: Benchmarks fine, games like Tomb Raider I can run on ultra np, crysis 3 is about 45 fps a second, can run anything on the market.
  • Cons: MAJOR ISSUE ALERT, I have found this to be common in the 7800 series when doing research, and I personally have encountered this in Tera and in League of Legends, where as I am playing, usually every hour or so I will get a glitch where the screen sort of flickers/rolls and the hud will jump out ...

On the fence

Robert S., Newegg
23 January 2013
  • Summary: I had great luck with Asus motherboards in the past, and assumed that an Asus GPU video card would play in concert with 8-core AMD CPU on an Asus MoBo--but NO! I'll have to move this board to the home entertainment system and buy Nvidea for video editing.
  • Pros: It looks cool. It plays video.
  • Cons: GPU crashes my video editing software and Asus technical support was not helpful. And while the card took more than a week to be delivered over X-mas, and 3 weeks of evenings and weekends trying to solve the various issues that popped up, I missed applying for the rebate by 2 days! This video car...
