Really good overall, but with a few flaws for me

  • Summary: Fist want to say I bought this model of the card for the cooling system, I wanted a powerful but silent computer, and this one seems the best choice. PROS: Excellent performance, beautiful design, and stays cool all the time. CONS: When idle, fans run at 30% of speed, making audible noise.

Very good

  • Summary: I'm curious as to why it is no longer in stock- it's a powerful, powerful card that should be slightly cheaper now, but instead, you can't purchase it. :(
  • Pros: It's a very powerful GPU that can play any game I throw at it, no problem. 60+ FPS most games.
  • Cons: It doesn't handle AA very well. At least, not BF3 AA- which destroys framerates.

Good card for the right price

  • Summary: It's big, but fit in my Antec 300. Can run Skyrim maxed at 1680x1050 and BF3 is at high (not ultra). Playing with 2500k @ 4.4 and Z68 AsRock board.
  • Pros: Quiet, no issues/crashes with BF3 and Skyrim.
  • Cons: Wish it would max BF3, but that's not the card's fault. :)

Whines & Squeals

Woon P., Newegg
19 January 2012
  • Summary: I upgraded from a crossXfire 4890. My PSU is 1000w (bronze certified); so it's out of the question that the squeals comes of my PSU, since I ran my pair of 4890 just fine as it is.
  • Pros: FPS improvement Quiet (but... see cons)
  • Cons: Whines & Squeals under high load. I'm not sure if I'm the only one that is experiencing this, but I hope it's not a big thing and I'm hoping that it'll go away after awhile (the burn-in period). It's not really loud, just high pitchy.... but since I owned a pair of 4890 b4, that is really nothing...

Good value for the $$$

John M., Newegg

  • Pros: 3 cooling fans make this card run at low temps. I can play BF3 on ULTRA settings without a hiccup. Well worth the money!
  • Cons: AMD's latest driver updates threw my system out of whack and the card was lagging big time. Complete format and reinstall fixed everything, but was a pain.

Big... BUT AWESOME!

  • Summary: Still a great card. well worth the money
  • Pros: -Great power. Runs Total War Shogun 2 at High Graphics no lag -XFire works great, two of these monsters fit a little tight but will fit none the less in any AMD motherboard
  • Cons: - Gets a little hot at some times and will have massive heat spikes even if you're running low quality games like >70 degrees - If you do plan on getting two the airflow will be pretty poor on your top card (which unfortunatley is the one you have to plug into you monitor as well making it hotter...

Great Card

Russell B., Newegg
15 December 2011
  • Summary: 4 out of 5 stars because first card was bad. Otherwise, it's a 5 star product.
  • Pros: I got this card to upgrade from a 3 year old card that was starting to have trouble with newer games. This 6950 now allows me to run games like Skyrim and BF3 on ultra setting flawlessly. Before, in BF3, I felt like I was always a half second to a second behind eveybody else. I felt like I was fi...
  • Cons: The first card I got had issues with crashing my system after 20 minutes or so of gameplay (any game, even old ones). RMA'd it and the new one works great.

  • Excerpt: в простое тишина практически полная. под нагрузкой вентиляторы таки слышно (в пределах разумного, в моем ноуте СО громче жужжит :). греется несколько больше чем ожидал - в непродуваемый корпус лучше не ставить.
  • Pros: тихая
  • Cons: цена (себе бы не взял, разве что в подарок)

  • Excerpt: блин, из-за её пришлось менять БП, предыдущий 600-Ваттный Грейт Волл вообще не справлялся: в 2-Д все норм, хоть днями сиди, но в требовательных игрушках десяток другой секунд 3-Д сцены - и в перезагрузку.
  • Pros: Aliens vs Predator 2010 на высоком качестве в ФуллХД летает (ну и Denied Ops - но это не показатель :)
  • Cons: все-таки в нагрузке её слышно - высокочастотный гул. Особенно это ощутимо после безшумного ХИС АйсКью Тубро 3850
