so so product

Riverstudio, Amazon
18 October 2013
  • Summary: it is a good graphic card in term of performance per dollar ratio. But the quality is the problem. After about half year, it started to have graphic artifact. I had 2 of them for crossfire. By the time I replaced it with 7870. I've requested RMA 3 times. I will buy from different brand in the future.

LOUD

J. Tompkins, Amazon
2 March 2012
  • Summary: While the Radeon functions as intended with regards to performance, with regards to accoustics the product is terrible. The fan is incredibly loud and the driver software does not do an adequate job of reducing fan speed with the cooling is not neccessary.

LOUD. But good.

Kent, Amazon
24 January 2012
  • Summary: I upgraded from my 5770 and performance-wise it's a marked improvement. But since I've installed it, the fan hasn't spun lower than sixty percent and it is quite loud. I'm sure it's effective, and it wouldn't be a problem with a headset, but it's a racket watching movies and the entertainment room never seems silent. Also, despite it's "short" form, my other cards tapered off at the back, while this one is square.

Great Card With One HUGE Flaw

Jack, Amazon
20 November 2011
  • Summary: I bought this card a few weeks ago because it came out to $130 after rebate, which at the time was a great deal. For the most part I was happy with my purchase. Performance-wise, it was everything I expected. I'm able to run everything with a smooth frame rate at maximum or near-max settings. The problem with this card is the fan. I've never heard a cooling fan this loud. When it's idling, I can hear it from the other side of my house.

Noisy and hot

Col Mustard, Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: Its Noisy and hot the fan design is poor it generates a lot of noise while moving very little air. It worked fine for me but it did run very hot which will reduce its life span and performance. I had no performance issues with it and even ran dual monitors with 3 client games running at once.

Ok GPU

Connor L "Connor", Amazon
11 January 2013
  • Summary: Its a good powerful graphics card for the price, it performs well and can easily play any modern game. The reason I gave it 3 stars is because the cooling on this card is terrible, you have to have your fans on virtually maximum when playing relatively GPU intense games which is very noisy. Normally I wouldn't mind the noise but despite that the card still runs at about 80 degrees which is likely to shorten the life span.

Not as good as reference Xfx 6870

JamesMason, Amazon
4 July 2012
  • Summary: The title of my review really sums up my thoughts on this card. Last year I bought a reference 6870 on release with the intention to get a second for crossfire later on. Recently this card was reduced to £113 on Scan, so I decided to grab one quick for a crossfire setup, this was most certainly a mistake as there are many things which make this a sub-par 6870.

Leistung gut.

Babel-2, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: Die hohen Leistungswerte aktueller GraKa's erzielt man eben neben fortschreitender Miniaturiesierung auf der einen Seite auch durch höhere Baugrößen, dadurch mehr Wärmeentwicklung, dadurch größere Kühlkörper und Lüfter und dadurch eben wieder Lärm auf der anderen Seite. Produkte die überall gleichwertig gut und dann noch günstig sind, gibt es eben nicht an jeder Ecke, daher hatte ich mich für ein "gutes, älteres" Modell entschieden.
