  • Summary: i love it my 7970 lightning, it literally destroy every actual game with all in max res. the only cons. it has no hdmi, but isn't really a big deal with the adaptor included or equal with the display port cable... really want to see more of these sold by amazon, so i can get one more for my crossfire...

Best GPU I have ever owned, hands-down.

Stephen Mahanes, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: PROS: PERFORMANCE: First thing to point out: at the time of writing, this is the single fastest 7970 available in the USA. The heatsink design is superb. It is extremely simple to overclock, including voltage control. The "GPU Reactor", as MSI calls it, is a tiny daughter board with additional power phases: more phases in your power conversion results in a more consistent voltage supplied to your GPU core, which in turn means more stability while overclocking.

Things to know If you run multiple monitors / DVI / multiple videos

Lobo "Lobo", Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: The card has a good sturdy construction feel to it. At the beginning I thought the card was defective, however, as it turns out it was not the cards' fault so here are the solutions: - If you run a DVI monitor at 1920x1200 (max single link DVI resolution) using single-link DVI cable you may experience corruption, blinking, and other strange things. I have no explanation as to why (my single link cable has been working fine at this resolution with this monitor for years).

GREAT CARD

Raul Martinez, Amazon
15 June 2012
  • Summary: This is a well built card made for the enthusiast. Cost a bit more but I got my card to overclock to 1260mhz and demolishes games at 1440p. One thing I did not like is the card is very wide and I had to remove the GPU Reactor Cover(not the reactor itself) to install the card. So far very pleased with my purchase and plan to stick with MSI from now on.

Super Karte

x_Thjaffi_x, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: Aufgrund der anderen schlechten Rezension sah ich mich gezwungen auch eine zu verfassen, um AMD nicht im Regen stehen zu lassen. (Habe dieses Produkt nicht bei Amazon erworben) Denn wenn man nicht unbedingt an einem 3D Monitor mit 120Hz sitzt, kann ich dieser Karte keinen, aber auch wirklich gar keinen Mangel nachweisen. Betreibe sie an einem Dell U2711 mit 2560x1440@60 (DP) und habe bei keinem aktuellen Game Performanceprobleme (Crysis 3, BF4, Metro LL, etc.).

Die wohl beste Grafikkarte der modernen Zeit!

Florian Uhlemann, Amazon
19 July 2012
  • Summary: Die R7970 Lightning von MSI ist die wohl heißeste Grafikkarte der Welt! 3GB Speicher, 384bit Anbindung dessen, beachtliche Rechenleistung für Computing und Grafik, hohe Taktfrequenzen und ein klasse Kühler/Lüfter sorgen bei dieser Grafikkarte für Spaß am Übertakten, wie auch beim Nutzen der Karte selbst. Die einzige Grafikkarte, die an diese Karte ran kommt, ist die EVGA GTX 680 Classified. Ansonsten ist sie der "King" schlecht hin.
