Summary: good card so far, first AMD/ATI card i've ever had, and it looks great, and i cant hear it over my ambient PC noise! currently it runs Skyrim on ultra detail, at 1600x900 (my monitors max) with FSAA OFF, at 45-55 FPS. my system is: Q6600 OC'd @ 3.0GHZ 4gb ddr2 800mhz ram 620w PSU Gigabyte p35 Mobo. win7 64bit my old card was a good old Nvidia 9800GTX+, which could also run Skyrim on the same settings, but at a slightly lower FPS, around 35-45, but 25 or lower in doors?
Summary: Saphire with ATI radeon chipset comes in many diferent shapes. This one is a good, solid graphic card, yet not suitable to those who like to tweak or overclock thier hardware. One fan on the devide is silence and solid, yet do not provide enough cooling if the chipset was tweaked. GPU is tricky to overclock as well in this very case almost impossible for those who dont know what they are doing.
Excellent Card, Good Value for a Mid-High End Card, Works on a Mac Pro!

Summary: Got this card about a week ago. So far the results have been excellent. I downloaded the latest driver from the AMD website, rather than using the included CD, which is probably out of date. I am running this on a Mac Pro 2008 (8 Core 2.8Ghz) computer in the first PCIx16 slot alongside the original AMD 2600XT which I have kept with no monitor plugged in, in case I need to see the boot screen.
A good card - on paper it should give a slight boost over the 'best buy' Sapphire 6850

Summary: This large card is approx 4.0 x 11 x 24.5cm in size and fills two slots on our motherboard. It has twin DVI outs [one is a Dual Link DVI-I that can work larger resolution monitors and output to a VGA screen, and the other is a single link DVI-D that's digital only and can't run a VGA display]. There's also an HDMI TV socket and a Display Port socket [the latter can feed video to a third monitor].
Excerpt: "== intro and specifications == I bought this graphics card on its release date as I had been looking forward to have the next generation of ATI graphics cards (now known as AMD) and the specifications of the graphics card exceeded what I expected. The HD 6870 comes with 1GB of DDR5 RAM running at 1,050MHz (4.2GHz effective), 900MHz GPU clock speed and 1,120 stream processors. This card preforms faster then a 5850 and just below a 5870 and for a very ...
Pros: fast, 1gb ddr5, very good video quality, directx 11, improved tessellation and a good price .
Cons: very close to 6950 price, drivers need to mature .
Summary: Então, Placa de vídeo que deu conta do recado na maioria dos jogos de 2012! Tirando um ou outro como Crysis 2, que realmente não deu pra passar dos 25 fps! (isso no high!). No geral, vale pelo custo/benefício. O pessoal da Saphire, mantêm sempre a qualidade, não tem como! Minha marca de placa de vídeo favorita!
Meilleure carte de cette gamme mais quelques défauts

Excerpt: Très bonne carte graphique pour ce prix (135€ pour ma part), un peu plus bruyante que la HD 6850 lorsqu'elle est en charge mais on peut lui pardonner vu ses performances. Autre point plutôt négatif, elle nécessite deux broches d'alimentation contrairement à la plupart des cartes graphiques, ce qui peut s'avérer très ennuyant en Cross Fire ou pour un chassis à vitre où l'on veut cacher les cables.
