Summary: Installing it was a bit of an ordeal; in addition to the card, I also had to get a new power supply to support it (this is very important. Word to prospective buyers, check your power supply to make sure it's 550W or more.) After the hassle, though, the improvements were immediately apparent - games that regularly ran around 30-40 fps instantly shot up to 60. That was for the first few days.
Summary: Installed product on a new build and it did not pull up my bios on the monitor. Not sure if this is a good product or not, but I ended up getting 2 EVGA graphics cards from Best Buy to compensate.
Summary: You make a "special offer" with a 25$ rebate, you charge everybody 255$, then the next day the offer expires and the price is 225. Plus, to get that rebate on a useless american express card, you have to fill out papers, cut your box and send it via mail, not e-mail. I don't have time for this, the card is good, but the company is not fair to their customers. Thank you for stealing 30$ from me.
Summary: This card has serious compatibility issues with some motherboards/BIOS. Update to new BIOS may help but in my case I could never fixed it. So be aware before purchase. So here is my story: I purchased this HD7950 few weeks ago as upgrade for my HD6950. I was so excited when I got this beautiful 3 fan GPU so I plugged it in and turned on my PC but I only got pure black screen.
Summary: i bought this as a gift for my husband. at first everything was great. he upgraded from a 6970 to the 7950. it ran everything better along with being a lot quieter. he never overclocked it. the temps always stayed around 40 to 50c even with playing games. the problem started to show up after a few weeks.
Summary: Ok, I just installed the card today and the computer has already froze twice. I was playing Sniper Elite V2, which is a not graphic intensive game. My old GC, which was a Radeon HD 6670 with 1 GB DDR5 has NEVER froze on me on Sniper Elite game. Also, the stock driver CD arrived damaged, I had to download the driver from BOTH AMD and Gigabyte sites. My PC is a Dell XPS 9100, with Intel i-7 2.8hz, 16 gb RAM, Samsung 830 SSD. I wonder if I should return the card or not.
Pros: Nagy teljesítmény alap beállítás mellett, talán neki van a legjobb teljesítménye azonos ár mellett. Komoly kártyának is néz ki., A hűtője átlagos amellett hogy háromventillátoros. Hűvösebb kártyára számítottam, habár lehet azért mert ez gyárilag tuningolt emiatt jobban melegszik is.
Cons: Azért a két csillag, mert nekem tesztek mellett megfagyott, pedig tuningolva nem volt. Alapbeállításon. Lehet hogy csak én vagyok balszerencsés.
