Great solid card

Johnnysmooth, Amazon
26 March 2014
  • Summary: I got my first one on Newegg for $399 (on sale) in 2009, I still have it in my Rig and am running Titanfall on very high settings. I got my second from Amazon for half, maybe less, in 2013 for Xfire. However, I couldn't get them to play well together. I got lots of micro tearing and hickups from them so I just put the 2nd in my wifes PC. I know noone is still buying these as they are so out dated.

Awesome card

Luis Hernandez Vargas, Amazon
12 March 2011
  • Summary: Simply put, it is just amazing. Of course there are better VCs out there, but the difference between an HD4870 to this one is big and the performance is all everything I was looking for. Although I was expecting fro the card to have a better finish (physically) like shown on the headline picture or whatever, it came out to be a refurbished or something like that look. Just a very simple red plastic cover on top not like shown here.

The Joys of DirectX 11

Christopher Deweese, Amazon
29 March 2010
  • Summary: Recently upgraded to the 5870 from an 8800GT. This is my first ATI card as I was previously convinced that Nvidia were the kings. Oh how times have changed. The benchmarks for this card pretty much blow away anything Nvidia has (not to mention the added benefit of low heat and low power consumption). I was lucky enough to find one at a Microcenter for $399, so I snatched it up.

So far its great

John Kessler, Amazon
19 March 2010
  • Summary: So far this card has worked great. I had read about all the nightmares with installing it, but it went smooth and easy. Once installed Win7 recognized it and I installed the drivers from the CD. Then went to ATI web page and downloaded the newest ones. Every thing runs smooth and my Windows experience rating went to 7.8 for graphics. It is a very large card and I also had to install a new psu [...] which was larger than the one I had before.

Great card great price!

D. Orders "Otterwan", Amazon
25 February 2010
  • Summary: First, let me point out that so far the only 1 star review for this card is from someone who COULDN'T GET ONE! That says more about this card than the 5 star reviews does! I love this card. It is very quiet, not like the last card I had (a BFG Nvidia 6800GT). It is, however, huge, both in length and width.

Excellent Single GPU Video Card, Faster than my old 4870X2!

M. Brandenburg, Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: I was running a Tri-Fire combination with a Dual GPU 4870X2 & a Single GPU 4870. This Combination gave me a 3Dmark06 score of 23416 using an Intel 3.0 Quad Core and 8 gigs of DDR3 Memory. It also gave me over 50 FPS in Crysis with all settings maxxed out. The old 4800 series is a 55nm process and sometimes runs a little hot during full load and intense graphics. This new 5870 is the best I have seen so far. It is built on the new 40nm process and runs 20c cooler.

Great for use on 30" screens

X. Caine, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: Seems i was lucky enough to find one of these at my local shop. Upgraded from an 8800GT and this card is great. It is fast.. (usually over 100 fps in 2500x1600 with wow latest patch) and it does not make a lot of noise. Very happy for now and i highly recommend that. Had bad experience with sapphire 4850x2 and xfx 5770 so if you do want a video card and need a lot of power, this one is a great choice. Not cheap but worth it i think.
