Excellent Card for Far Cry 4@ 1080p ultra/custom 60fps

victor crump, Amazon
30 November 2014
  • Summary: It's a great performing card, runs far cry 4 with an i5 4670 at 1080p ultra using smaa and volumetric fog. The issue that everyone needs to be aware of is that this is not a reference board design, so many coolers will not work with it. The need for alternative cooler does exist though, because there are no heatsinks on the Ram or the Vreg chips. This card will fry if used for 10 hour marathons without some extra cooling.

Powercolor are simply the best.

Mario Holder, Amazon
11 April 2013
  • Summary: This card rocks! Many people have negative reviews on this card, but mostly because of the fact that theirs was defective. Powercolor in general has been making powerful and reliable graphics cards over the years; not only does this card have some style to it, but it's also one of the best -- if not the best -- oc 7970 gpus. Make sure this thing can fit in your case: it's about 11 inches long, but you need not be concerned provided you have any full tower case.

Horrible artifacts out the box

Kathy Porter, Amazon
5 April 2013
  • Summary: Hooked it up with no overclocking from my end. Card had horrible artifacts on Combat Arms and other low demanding games...Sent back. This was the second 7970 in a row I had to send back. the first card was from a different company. I'm not waiting to see if I get 3 strikes. Just threw a second gtx 660 ti super clocked in and it's all good.

Unstable Card

rackmaster, Amazon
9 January 2012
  • Summary: I am currently on my third card of this type. The first one I had to RMA after 2 months after I bought the card. The second time was 4 months after I Rmaed the first card. Not only have I wasted about a month and a half of my time. Both times where the same problem of the card becoming defective and pixalating after about 3 months of use. I would not recommend this brand since this is my third RMA from this brand 2 being this card.

Runs cool, quiet and very stable

John H Teoh, Amazon
9 January 2012
  • Summary: Compared to other 7970 video cards, this 3rd generation PowerColor 7970 runs cool, quiet and stable when overclocked to the max of 1500 MHz. It seems to me that the 2-fan design is effective, they draw more heat out and as long as you have another fan to direct the heat away from the card and another fan to draw th heat out of the case. I have used many 7970 cards but found this card to be one of the better 7970 cards!

I guess it's okay...

Andrew P. Woods "The Mario Master", Amazon
9 January 2012
  • Summary: I got this card at a rather steep discount right when it was discontinued. Despite the price, it was still the most expensive price of hardware in the case (typical for GPUs). While most of my other hardware ranges from simply good to outright fantastic (FX-8350 forever!), this card was rather underwhelming. The main advantage is the 3GB video ram, which can come in handy in super-modded games. However, I can't say the same about this card's power.

Decent card, not reference design board

Broo2 "Broo2", Amazon
9 January 2012
  • Summary: I purchased one of these a few weeks ago and I have been pretty happy with the card. In my system, it idles around 45c and gets up to 80c when under full load. The fans are very quiet vs. the single fan design. It will overclock up to 1125 core in rgw Catalyst software with temps of 84c. All-in-all, it is a very good card for the price. Two issues with the card: 1.

PCI Express 3.0 is backward compatible

Cameron.Sutor, Amazon
9 January 2012
  • Summary: This is just to inform potential buyers that pukey doesn't know what he/she is talking about. PCI-E 3.0 is backward compatible, meaning if your motherboards pci-e slot is version 1.0, 2.0, or 3.0, this card will work. The difference between those 3 versions is bandwidth, but the physical slot is exactly the same. That said, I don't actually own the card.
