Died worst service ever

ecologypenguin, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: It was a great performing card for about six months then died. XFX customer sevice is impossible when I submitted an RMA they requested me to perform tests that I had stated I already performed then when I replied to them they never responded.

It's just not worth it

Alexander Morgenstern, Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: I got this card and it worked fine for a couple of months and then the drivers just kept crashing. I followed all of XFX's guidelines on this and even got the card RMA'd. After a supposedly brand new card I tried other solutions as well. After replacing nearly every other part of my computer, this brand new card still crashes with the same issues with a brand new everything. Stick with Nvidia if you're a fan, and don't go AMD/XFX.

both fans on 3 of these cards all died within a few months, xfx support is extremely slow with replacements!

CCS2, Amazon
10 September 2013
  • Summary: both fans on 3 of these cards all died, xfx support is extremely slow (now waiting 3 weeks) and they act like they are doing you a favor sending replacement fans (wait, they keep running out of stock of the replacement fans for some strange reason) because their product died after only 2-3 months of use! So much for me purchasing their top of the line GHZ edition 7970 cards. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.

Not worth the money.

jonathan barnhart, Amazon
19 August 2013
  • Summary: This 7970 ghz is the dual instead of the single link I bought before and the cooler is bogged down by extra cnnector. The performance is choppy and I am getting ready to RMA because the crash issues lead me to believe it is defective. Also no reloaded free games like buying from Newegg.

Would not "coexist" with other hardware in my PC

W.A.H., Amazon
16 July 2013
  • Summary: This PCI-e 3.0 x16 GPU worked great with a conventional SATA HDD for the PC's permanent storage and should work great if the PC's permanent storage is via a SATA SSD device, too. But my PC's "C:\" drive is via OCZ's RevoDrive3 X2, which is a PCI-e 2.0/3.0 x4 based SSD device that is bootable, a 4-way RAID 0 SSD, four 120 GB SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration resulting in 480 GB of very, very fast permanent storage.

The card is horribly unstable, started off fine

Alex Dietz, Amazon
30 May 2012
  • Summary: This card has had a lot of problems. One of the fans wobbles and the fan blades start scrapping the heat sink at high RPMS. The card is horribly unstable, started off fine, but then got to the point where it was hanging multiple times a day, not when using it, but when idle, like when I walk away for five minutes or so. To give you an idea, yesterday, I had to hard reset because of this card 26 times before noon. I finally took it out of the computer today.

So much for that lifetime warranty

Daniel Marsh, Amazon
23 May 2012
  • Summary: XFX likes to advertise their warranty policy, but makes fulfillment next to impossible. My card never ran stably at the default "factory overclocked" rate and I had to underclock it by 50 mhz core and 100 mhz ram to get it stable. After only two months of ownership, 1 of the cards 2 fans began to fail. It spun unevenly and at much slower RPMs and I've occasionally found it completely stopped.

Worked just past my return date then died

runclear, Amazon
23 May 2012
  • Summary: I had some random blue screens and a few crashes while playing SC2. I could live with those - but now it won't even post and displays artifacts during the boot up.

Drivers crash

cutaway, Amazon
23 May 2012
  • Summary: Installed in brand new hp phoenix with windows 7 64. Kept getting long pauses about once per minute, followed by display driver not reponding messages. Only two things would stop this problem - disabling driver or putting some load on the gpu for example running Microsoft flight simulator.

Do Not Buy From XFX - They don't honor their warranty!

Nelson Tam, Amazon
25 January 2012
  • Summary: I bought 2 XFX HD6870 cards last year to set up Crossfire and Eyefinity. It turned out one of the cards was broken and not working properly in Eyefinity mode. After identifying the issue on my own, I got a RMA number and sent in the card for repair. Then a week later, they said that the card had physical damage and one of the resistors is missing and they cannot honor their warranty.
