Excerpt: Earlier in the month we had a chance to look at the new PowerColor HD 7870 2GB Myst Edition Tahiti LE based HD 7870 which uses a modified version of the higher end Tahiti HD 7900 GPU. We found ourselves extremely impressed with the new model, but it was not without its flaws.
Summary: Just like the other FleX edition cards that Sapphire has put out, this one is impressive. The 7870 FleX can pretty much play any game currently out on high settings on 1 monitor. It can also play most on high with 3 monitors. With prices on monitors coming down and the power of mid range cards increasing, running 3 monitors for gaming is becoming a more viable option.
Excerpt: Recently we had a chance to look at the Sapphire HD 7950 Flex . With its $399.99 price tag though, it might not be the best option for everyone. Moving back in price a little the HD 7870 Flex Edition video card might be what you're looking for if you're after the Flex features specifically at a cheaper price point.

Excerpt: With a factory overclock providing increased performance the Sapphire HD 7870 OC Edition looks to be a competitive buy for those on a budget. We will be using Battlefield 3 Multiplayer as well as a few other games to see how well this video card performs against a Radeon HD 6970 and GeForce GTX 570.

Excerpt: Over the last few weeks we've looked at some high-end video cards from both AMD and NVIDIA thanks to partners starting to release high-end variants of the HD 7900 series while NVIDIA of course launched the new GTX 680.
Excerpt: 63 Flares 63 Flares × Today we are taking our second look at a HD7870 Tahiti LE card, this time from Sapphire. Our previous experiences with the HD7870 Tahiti LE have been memorable but today we wanted to show something different. We push the Sapphire card to the limit and manually overclock two competing AMD and Nvidia based ‘pre-overclocked’ solutions from HIS and MSI. Is the new Sapphire HD7870 Tahiti LE good value for money?

Conclusion: The capability rating compares each graphics card with GeForce GT 630, which is considered a baseline or 100%. The rating is based on both synthetic and gaming results and shows, as the name implies, what a product is capable of. The usability rating is obtained by dividing each card's capability rating by its price. It basically shows whether a given product is over or underpriced, considering what it can do, and thus how reasonable it is to buy it.
