Showing 1-10 of 39
Good performance, bad quality, abysmal support.

Summary: I bought this card a year ago, and it handled any game I threw at it at max settings without any trouble. About a week ago, while playing Metro 2034, the card temps when up to 95°C. The card, as many MSI 7950, had a case of bad thermal paste. After reapplying new thermal paste, the temps went down 5°C, but still where too high for this card. Turns out the rear fan had died.
Summary: This card is a beast! I run Crysis 3 at max settings and get 40-60 fps no problem with just a slight overclock on the card. Ive aslo used it for cryptocoin mining (i.e. Litecoin, et al) and it gets the best hashrates for a card per $ spent. No reason to buy a 7970, this does the job just fine!
Summary: This card is very well built with a aluminum cover not plastic and has performed as expected and for the same reason i use AMD processors in my builds as well as their graphics cards is the price/performance ratio over the other guy.
Great bargain, even with R9s being out in the market

Summary: It's a great replacement for my 3 year old HD5770 HAWK and it runs most games (DCS, Wargame: ALB, Crysis 2, Mechwarrior Online and War Thunder) fairly well in 1920 x 1080 resolution. Best thing is that it came with 3 free games by way of AMD's promotion. No problems with this so far.
Summary: A beast card to go with my beast of a computer (not really, its actually a collection of outdated and OCed parts), BUT this card is awesome. OCed to 1100 core and 1350 mem, usage at 98-99%, temps aren't going over 55'c with 60% fan in bf3. Crysis 2 and 3 give it a run for its money though(although I suspect that's actually my other components letting me down).
Summary: This card is superbly made with a sleek aluminum case and heat pipes. Much better than your usual plastic fare. A little bit nosier than I had expected. However the performance is as expected and excellent. No issues with the drivers, all the latest games play really well on 1920 x 1200. Already a next gen console beater. Also comes with easy to use overclocking software.
