Summary: Loving this card for 2560x1600 gaming on max settings. Able to run Battlefield 3 nice and smooth, Crysis 3 if I turn Anti Aliasing off and many other current "high demand" games. This was an upgrade from the GTX470, and I am having no power issues with my 750W PSU keeping up with it. The card came with Tomb Raider, Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite and Far Cry: Blood Dragon. That was the main reason I went with AMD, otherwise I would have grabbed an nVidia card.
Pros: - Powerful, - Efficient, - Good deal with Game Incentives
Cons: - Loud under load, - A little pricey compared to the nVidia cards
Summary: I am loving this card! Great for gaming. I have never had such a powerful card that runs so cool! I'm used to buying a high end Nvidia card and they run much much hotter than this, ussually a high end card has hot air pouring out its back vents while gaming or running FoldingwHome, but not this card!
Summary: This card is quick, and will not leave you wanting in performance. I just tested it in FC3 as an upgrade from a 6950 - and it's not even a contest. I can set FC3 to "ultra", 8X MSAA at 1920x1200 with no issues or complaints. The card runs cool at idle (30C) and under load about 60C. Can not complain. I have ordered an Accelero cooler for it anyways, as the last Gigabyte card I had with the same cooler lost it's fans (failed bearings). The bad spin?
Pros: Lightning fast, VERY COOL (even with stock cooler!), Quiet (wasn't expecting that).
Cons: Box and accessories leaves much to be desired.
Summary: originally I had purchased the XFX7970 ghz then after returning three of them for coil whine I went with this card . When running 3Dmark11 stock no overclocking on card or cpu scored 9250 vs XFX 7970 ghz got 7800 stock cooling Gigabyte around 55 to 57 the XFX 68 Gigabyte gets a total 5 Star for 7970 GHZ
Summary: I've had this card for over 2 weeks now and I literally cannot fault it one bit. Quiet, no lag, handle over 2000 pixels with ease. If you're looking for a card within the price range to run any game at ultra settings (Battlefield 4, COD:Ghosts ETC.) this is the card for you!
Summary: Great card, absolutely beautiful. Working great, and mostly silent under-load. The only problem I had is that when I first tried to install it, it wouldn't show any display, I found out a few hours later after some googling that I required to update my motherboards BIOS. If your cards fans are working and you get no display, I would recommend checking out updating your motherboards BIOS driver.
Summary: 1100 Mhz clock and awesome cooling power. Runs every game I have on High - Ultra settings Almost twice the power if the PS4 or Xbox one. Upgraded to I5 Haswell from AMD CPU made a huge difference also.
Summary: All in all, I'm very pleased with this purchase. It runs very quickly, even stuff like Skyrim. Can't really think of anything bad. It's definitely worth getting something like this. Good points: Very fast Nothing seems slow on it.
Summary: Hab die Karte heute erhalten und mir extra frei genommen. Hab ein System für meinen Bekannten zusammengestellt, selber wär mir die Karte zu teuer. Er wollte für die nächsten Jahre Ruhe haben (sein altes helt stolze 8 Jahre...Respekt) Deshalb riet ich Ihm noch zu warten und gleich bei der 7970 zuzuschlagen. Und bin angenehm überrascht.Etwa so groß wie meine (6950) und damit kleiner als 6970. Hab das ganze in nen CM STORM Gehäuse eingebaut und keinerlei Platzprobleme.
