To be determined

John Palmer, Amazon

  • Summary: The first card Amazon sent was difficult to make it through a complete boot without receiving a blue screen. Even once the system was up and running it might be minutes or it might be hours but never fail the computer had a hard time going more than a day without hanging at a blue screen.

2 cards, both fail (update: third time's the charm)

Nimbus, Amazon

  • Summary: I was excited to upgrade from my 4850 and purchased this card as a replacement. Never had any issues with the 4850, but this card had issues within 10 minutes after startup. Initially everything was fine, then I launched BF3, which ran beautifully on the highest settings for few minutes before...

Good card but poor rebate process

  • Summary: After seeing the tempting rebate-based price of $245, I ordered a pair of these cards. I was attracted by their better price/performance over Nvidias and they were also reputed to run cooler.

Shaders will NOT unlock

DocMarmo, Amazon

  • Summary: Even though it has the bios switch it will NOT unlock the extra shaders. Using GPUZ and extracting the alternate shader bios I can confirm that Sapphire is putting an unlock bios on the card from the factory. However, even though this is the case the shaders will NOT unlock.

Not fair enough for the price

Jason, Amazon
3 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought this card from Newegg when they had it on sale for $200. The reason I chose it over an ASUS topII 560Ti is: 1.I heard a lot about unlocking it to 6970 and 2.it has 2G Memory, but after using it for a few days, I start to regret my choice.

Faulty card or just not as expected

D. Adams, Amazon
25 March 2011
  • Summary: OK, I got this card from Warehouse Deals. It's exactly as pictured which is exactly what I wanted. I installed the card and all seemed to work as expected. Loaded the latest drivers and such. I started playing some games and I could see some differences but...well how about a list?
