  • Summary: I had this card only for 2 days and I was already having issues with it. In the first evening, it locked up my pc twice. Also had some artifacting a few times while benching. After seeing all the negative comments I decided it was better to return and get something else. Went it Sapphire 7970 Dual-X OC and haven't looked back. 3 stars because i most likely got a lemon and if it weren't for that I would have kept it.
  • Pros: -Ran everything I could think of easily, -Looks amazing
  • Cons: -Got pretty hot, -Made my computer freeze randomly, -Got some artifacting, -non-reference board, -no dual-bios switch, -locked voltage

Awesome cards except for The Secret World

Steve Ko, Amazon

  • Summary: First I must clarify that these are awesome cards. I bought two of these and crossfired them for gaming purposes. Unfortunately the game I play is The Secret World which is specifically designed around the Nvidia GTX 660. Those of us using the AMD Video Cards have had problems zoning and being kicked from servers. After reading the forums, I discovered this happened only with AMD cards, and the problems went away after the cards were replaced with the Nvidia cards.

  • Summary: This coil whine is really bad and its not with just one card I returned 3 that had it, if you do a search for coil whine you'll hear it now for cooling it stayed at around 68 which in fact sucks compared to the Gigabyte 7970 ghz same games 55 to 57 no coil whine noise at all one other thing in 3dmark the XFX no over clocking on card or cpu it got 7800 but the Gigabyte got 9250 stock So now you know which one is the better product
  • Pros: Zero Nil Not A one Had to put 3 stars to post this when 1 star would not post

Great card... if it worked properly. easy five stars if it worked

  • Summary: So i bought this card from newegg for about $480. Looks great, the dual fans are an awesome upgrade from the single leaf blower fan. Heres the catch a few years ago AMD suffered what was referred to as the grey screen of death (GSOD). It was determined to be a driver problem ever since I have installed this card it freezes requiring a hard reboot at least 5 times a day.

  • Summary: Consider more if you won't get water cooling.
  • Pros: Really noisy. Mine get really high temp when I run high performance games, and noisy. And it doesn't have dual BIOS switch.
  • Cons: High performance PCB.

Good Card However It's Hot and Loud

  • Summary: This card run's really hot and really loud however it does preform, i wouldn't personally recommend for Crossfire as the temps may get out of control but if you're looking to install a water block should be perfectly fine.

  • Summary: Hi, turned up after about 5 days including weekend. I read in one of the reviews that the card was 13.5" long this is incorrect it is under 11.5" voltage locked. V6.0 Any questions let me know.

Good card, awful heatsink

Andrew Brown "foxbat", Amazon
30 June 2013
  • Summary: The card is a great performer just as the reviews have no doubt told you. The HSF, however, is of very poor quality. Mine was running at 80C idle so, being a bloke, I decided to invalidate my warranty and reseat the HSF myself with a little more thermal compound to try to fix it believing that a mis-seated HSF was the issue. It wasn't. I made it worse. The part of the HSF that comes into contact with the GPU is of a poor quality.

Schnell und laut.

1903, Ciao
10 March 2013
  • Summary: Vorgeschichte: Guten Tag, in meinem Bericht über die GTX660 OC konnte man meine damaligen Ansprüche in Erfahrung bringen. Durch das nette Never Settle Bundle(damals Far Cry 3, Sleeping Dogs und Hitman Absolution) und dem dazugehörenden Never Settle-Treiber(auch Wundertreiber genannt), wurde mein Verlangen wieder ins ATI/AMD-Lager einzusteigen immer größer. Wenn eine Karte, dann die schnellste SIngle-GPU die derzeit auf dem Markt erhältlich ist/war(Titan lässt grüßen).
  • Pros: Sehr schnell, gute P/L, nettes Spielebundle, sehr hochwertiger Eindruck
  • Cons: laut, recht hoher Stromverbrauch

  • Summary: Hallo. Ich hatte mir das GUTE Stück PolygonumwandlerWunder ;-) von AMD via Amazon Prime zukommen lassen. Der Versand, sowie die Verpackung war wie immer erste Sahne. Bin auch nichts anderes gewohnt von diesem TEAM :-). HIERBEI möchte ich auch einmal RECHT HERZLICH D A N K E sagen an das Amazon Team. Zur Installation der Grafikkarte: Das BIEST ist schwer, das BIEST ist lang ;-) . Aber es passte in mein IKONIK A10 Gehäuse.
