Is this a hairdrier?

nighthawkredux, Amazon
13 March 2012
  • Summary: This card is VERY LOUD. i tried to run it in crossfire and it was a joke. The card instantly got insanely hot and maxed out the fan. Even then, running a very low intensive game (League of legends) it was pushing 80 degrees C!!! this is just unacceptable to me. This maxed out the fan and people in the next room were asking what the noise was. I was hesitant o push the card any further for fear of overheating.

Aunty Em, Its a Twister

Neo, Amazon

  • Summary: Fan was extremely loud. But it gets worse. Granted, the settings on the newest games were able to look and play wonderfully well, the card only lasted 2 days before dying. All of the sudden, nothing. Blank screen. I did the normal investigative items, and I have a bad card. We call this "infant mortality" in the computer industry. I have been an Nvidia guy my whole life, but I ventured off the path.

LOUD

Japheth, Amazon
16 October 2011
  • Summary: Card installed and ran games fine, however, the fan cannot run slower than 50% at idle (unless you change to manual control in AMD Overdrive). This makes the card very LOUD! AMD cards tend to be louder but this is ridiculous. For my HTPC I swapped in a EVGA GTX560 Ti and I can't even hear the fan at 50%. Still has bitstream dolby/dts!

BSoD after 2 days of use. Amazon with A+ Customer Service

  • Summary: First off, I'll start what's in the box. - Video card - Manual - Driver CD - Door knob hanger reading "DND: I'M GAMING" There are no power cables included since XFX expects you to have them from the newer PSUs. There are no adapters. I was told that you can request a Xfire bridge from XFX for free, but I have no plans to go multi-GPU anytime soon. I installed the newest drivers from AMD's website.

Mixed emotions

Connor, Amazon
20 May 2013
  • Summary: Can play semi decent games at a playable framerate but better GPUs out their for similar price nowadays, also runs EXTREMELY LOUD & very hot. Unfortunately with mine the fans would stick to around 30% and would never budge even when the card hits the 90C, so was forced to install separate software to manage its cooling.

Eingentlich gut, aber...

Andreas, Amazon
20 January 2013
  • Summary: Hsllo, ich möchte mit dieser Rezesion meine Erfahrung mit dieser Karte beschreiben. ich hab sie am 27 Juli gekauft und war bis dato auch sehr zufrieden damit. BF3 packte sie auf ultra in Full HD Relativ flüssig, ohne große FPS Einbrüche. Seit dem 25. Februar Nervt sie mich allerdings enorm. Spulenfiepen. Unter Last gibt sie ein enormes Fiepen von sich. Leider.

Ausgelaufener Preis/Leistungs-Sieger

einfach Kurt, Amazon

  • Summary: Ich besitze diese Grafikkarte seit über einem Jahr. Damals habe ich sie gekauft, weil die im Vergleich recht hohe Leistung nirgendwo zu einem so günstigen Preis erhältlich war. Mittlerweile hat sich aber viel getan am Markt. Zum selben Preis gibt es bereits eine Radeon HD 7850, welche nicht nur rund 15 Prozent schneller läuft, sondern auch leiser und stromsparender ist.

Leicht defekte Karte

Andreas.N, Amazon
17 July 2012
  • Summary: Vorerst möchte ich sagen, dass es eigentlich eine ganz gute Karte ist. Aber jetzt komm ich zum Unangenehmen: Die Grafik fängt bei manchen Spielen die hohe Leistungen benötigen zu flackern. Des weiteren stürzen manche Spiele ab, weil der ATI Grafiktreiber sich aufgehängt hat und sich dann wieder neustartet. Ich hab dieses schon des öfteren im Internet gelesen und ich kann es bestätigen.

Nach gut einem Jahr abgeraucht

ceving, Amazon

  • Summary: Eigentlich war die Karte nicht schlecht. Leider hat sie sich nach gut einem Jahr mit einem großen Knall verabschiedet. Ich werde wohl den gleichen Chip wieder kaufen aber diesmal von einem anderen Hersteller.
