Card has stability issues. There is virtually no support from Sapphire to resolve driver failure to respond and restart issues
24 April 2011
Summary: Terrible card that is not ready for selling to the public. Card has stability issues. There is virtually no support from Sapphire to resolve driver "failure to respond and restart issues" messages that occur in Windows 7. Card finally died and I am having problems trying to obtain an RMA from Sapphire.
Summary: I bought this card six months ago for my home theater pc. It worked well for three months. Now it freezes randomly when you try to watch stuff on the Internet. I've contacted Sapphire; no luck. Wish I could get my money back. I checked on the Internet and there are numerous people having same problems with the ATI chip in the 57xx, 58xx series. There's no commonality between all the problems. So bottom line: no one has any idea what to do other than swap it out.
Summary: It's really hard to review this card as all I ever get is the now commonly reported "Black Screen" at boot. There is an apparent incompatibility with this card and older (~2-5 yr old motherboards). So, unless you bought a new CrossFireX Motherboard, matching CPU, RAM, and a VERY powerful powersupply (mine is a brand new 650w SLI/Crossfire certified) and decent RAM to go with this card, don't waste your money - it'll ONLY end in heartbreak.
