Great Card for Crossfire
3 weeks ago
Summary: I bought this product so I can crossfire it with my MSI Twin Frozr Radeon HD 6870. It's been working real well. I was planning to get a new graphics card instead of using crossfire but this was much cheaper and better than getting a 7770.
Summary: This card really has more graphics power than I would ever use... except it's exactly what I was looking for. graphics on BF3 loo smooth and my 40 fps are a thing of the past. It's a larger card, but definitely recommend.
Summary: I went through 2 of these cards. First one I got nothing but continuous blue screens on boot up. Second card worked for about 3 boots, then blue screens again. Used latest drivers, tried older drivers, no joy. Event viewer reported GPU overheat. Gave up and returned card. Theoretically sound concept, wish it would have worked for me. I've been using HIS 6870HD single for past 2 yrs. No problems. ASUS Rampage III Extreme, i7 975, 6G Corsair XMT, Win 7 SP1.
Summary: I already have a 6870 from XFX but man this one beats it out of the park in power and performance. Switched to my main on crossfire because it seemed to outdo the black edition. Only thing is runs about 9C hotter than the black edition. Still good tradeoff for the performance.
Summary: This card is a monster. It runs quiet, and runs well. Have not even had to consider overclocking it it any way to get the performance required. BE careful though, it is a very large card and you might have trouble getting it to fit in a Midtower case. Mine had to be slightly modified to accomidate. Other than that no issues and well worth the money paid.
Summary: Just buy it after considering what you need. Go for a higher spec if it is available in the same price bracket. Cant say more about this thing as it is a generation old now. I bought it way back in the middle of last year. A good replacement for my ageing 8800GT.
Summary: Got the product in just three days. Thanks to Flipkart, nice packaging. This card comes with Dirt 3 coupon. You can download the game online using the coupon code. Performance wise this card is awesome. The card runs at 920 MHz clock speed (although the specs here shows 900!). The card is cooler by 5-7 degree than similar chipset cards from other vendors. The card looks very nice. The card have Mini DVI port. I think the card is future safe for atleast 2-3 years.
Summary: I got the product on time . the product was in good condition with no damage done. Its now working like a gem in my computer.HIS rocks. Its cooling technology is also very impressive. It will easily work in 550Watts PSU. No need to hesitate at all to buy this product . This company is good.
