17 January 2014
Summary: The displayport had an unreliable connection from day 1. The hdmi port required all other ports to be disconnected to work properly. after the hdmi was activated, other ports could be connected without issue. The DVI ports worked flawlessly. The card died within a week.
Summary: After one year Windows stopped loading. Changed the graphics card(sapphire radeon hd6870) to another graphics card and it works fine. sapphire radeon card put into another working computer and it also would not work. conclusion-bad card. spent 3 days and many hours filling and sending and resending forms between 2 different web sites to use the 2 year warranty. NO RESULTS. never buy sapphire, radeon, etc. products. THEY ARE CRAP AND HAVE A BOGUS WARRANTY.

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. I have emailed firstname.lastname@example.org twice, attaching my Amazon purchase receipt and they have not replied.
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. I updated everything and it still did not work. I looked online and found out others had the same problem woth the card being "dead on arrival".
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? FAIL auf ganzer Linie. der ausgelieferte Treiber hat die Version 10.10e das "e" weist auf eine "modifizierte" Treiberversion hin. Doch was macht ATI in seiner UNENDLICHEN Weisheit? RICHTIG!
Pros: Schnell, Günstig
Cons: Treiberprobleme, Spiele laufen nicht (obwohl "runs on ATI"), keine wirklich aktuellen Treiber
