Summary: Don't buy this product or from this manufacturer. I've had mine work for about 10 months and then started to get the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). I created a ticket at their website - [...] sapphiretech.com. They replied that they don't handle RMAs. They told me to email email@example.com.
Summary: Memory clocked down, 1050mhz, If try to clock anything up it promptly locks up and crashes. Just 4 screws with springs holding the cooler on. Flimsy, Card with out any room to increase speed. Power connectors on top of Card , interferes with case fan
Summary: I researched this card extensively and it looked like a great buy. After I received it and installed it on my new desktop, I got the blue screen of death. I had to bring it to a professonal to look at the situation. He concluded it was not the card, but the software that came with it.
Excerpt: Bisher habe ich immer nVidia Karten benutzt. Doch als ich die 6870 gesehen habe dachte ich mir "Naja - CPUs können sie ja auch bauen, probierst es halt mal." Netzteil und Grafikkarte wurden ausgetauscht. Doch dann schlugen erst mal die typischen ATI Krankheiten zu. Aktuelle Treiber?
Pros: Schnell, Günstig
Cons: Treiberprobleme, Spiele laufen nicht (obwohl "runs on ATI"), keine wirklich aktuellen Treiber
