Sapphire HD 7870 Flex GHz Edition 2 GB
11 July 2012
Summary: In our initial launch reviews of the HD 7870, we praised how much performance improved over the last generation, and that still stands. The Sapphire HD 7870 Flex offers performance close to what NVIDIA's last generation GTX 580 flagship provided. Sapphire chose to not overclock their card out of the box, so the Flex runs at the same speed as the AMD reference design. I feel that they missed out on an opportunity here, as the card can easily run higher clocks.
Pros: Fast, good performance increase over previous generation, Quiet, Native full-size HDMI & DisplayPort output, Three monitors without the need for active DisplayPort adapter, Dual BIOS, Support for ZeroCore power, Support for PCI-Express 3.0 and DirectX 11.1
Cons: Not overclocked out of the box, Lower memory overclock than other HD 7870 cards
