Summary: This video card is almost as good as a HD6970 for those of you bitcoin miners that are out there. The only thing I don't really like about it is that it runs HOT with the stock fan. I would suggest adding an aftermarket fan such as the Artic Cooling Accelero Extreme to it if you plan on using it 24/7 like I do. It also works very well for running modern games.
Summary: Hi Everyone! I just both this VGA to make a crossfire. I already had one before and I was very satisfied with it. The card arrived in onepened box. Everything went smooth. Although the crossfire stoop up immedietly without any problem, I expected more from these two babies. Not every games use the CF (of course it is not the cards problem) but the heat is. The upper is 80-82 the downer is 75. I still think it is a good choice to buy.
Summary: Like Tom Kim notes in his review, there isn't even any fine print publicly displayed about the need for a special adapter for more than two monitors. So right off the bat I had to buy an adapter for $110-$120. My other complaint is that ATI makes the minimum effort to provide help in setting up either Eyefinity or Hydrovision. Luckily, Eyefinity can be set up with a bit of trial and error. However switching between profiles is still giving me fits.
Summary: I think the card itself is GREAT! It runs smoothly, cool, and not very overworked! The biggest problem I see is the drivers ATI has out right now, they're new and still have a few bugs, but I believe that in the next few months they will fix those problems.
Summary: Nach dem dritten Abrauchen (nichts übertaktet!) meiner "Asus EN8800GTX" wollte ich keine zwei Monate lang mehr auf die Reparatur warten und war somit gezwungen, mich nach einer neuen Grafikkarte umzusehen. Somit kam ich auch auf die ATI HD 5870, die mich sofort aus mehreren Gründen überzeugte: 1. DirectX 11 Unterstützung: Der optimale Grafikboost für die nächste Spielegeneration.
