Summary: Has gone exceptionally quick for everything that I have needed. I was an Nvidia fan until I realized there was such a variety of AMD cards for every price range, and they also seem more like Android in the Android vs Apple war. Much more high level user stuff, nvidia cards have always given me trouble when OCing but these are lovely and hold together for a long time.
Summary: I bought this when Radeon HD 7000 series was just being released. It has a dual bios switch on the circuit board, however I was not able to unlock the shaders. To make up for it, it gives a monster overclock of 941Mhz from stock 800. I am still working with Core 2 Duo, PCIe 1.0, on WinXp 32bit, so it may be being held back. Can't complain. As a note: only 6950 and above from the HD6000 series are Cayman core; anything below is a generation before.
Summary: buenísima tarjeta de vídeo, no tiene nada que envidiar a la nvidia, todos los juegos levanta al máximo sin levantar temperatura y sin perder la fluidez del gráfico, buen precio y excelente calidad
Summary: Shaders were unlocked to achieve higher performance; if you can find the right card, like those with a switch, you have yourself an effective 6970. Slight overclocking, and it matches the 6970 specs flawlessly. Take care to have a full size ATX case! It's a long card.
Summary: I bought this card because it had great reviews and (At the time)a great price point, it was about $199. I believe they discontinued it hence the giant price jump but it honestly has been a dream. I recommend it!
Summary: It unlocked YAY ME! This is a great card and I'm still using it...I carried it over to my new Ivy Bridge build but for some reason these unlock cards don't work unlocked with GEN 3 PCI-E boards...
Summary: I bought this video card when I upgraded to an FX8120. The dual bios switch enable the extra shaders that a HD6970 has. Use the Trixx sofware, with the dual bios enabled and a mild over clock, instant HD6970. The dual fans keep it really cool.
Summary: This is a nifty little card. I purchased it in order to mine Bitcoins, and it's working like a champ. Using Windows 7 and GUIMiner with a few options (easily found on the BTC Wiki) I'm generating about 350 MH/s with this card. I don't really have any complaints with this card, but there are some annoying things to take note of.
