Disappointed

ghdjgdf, Amazon
6 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought this video card because at the time it was the best on the market. This particular one is an XXX Edition meaning that its overclocked by the manufacturer. It does NOT work properly with factory settings. I had to decrease the VRAM's frequeny from the original 1300 MHz to 1200 MHz so that it would not die with a blue screen every half hour. After this it worked flawlessly for about 5 months.

Won't Work with My System

WLF "An Amateur Renaissance Man", Amazon
6 February 2010
  • Summary: It gives nothing but vertical, varying shades of blue herringbone lines on my screen. A nice visual but not what you want for viewing your desktop. Don't wanna get too techy because I don't have the skill-set, but my PC can handle the card, has processor speed, etc to make this work. Sent it back to the folks at XFX.

DON'T BUY THIS CARD!!!!(At least not yet)

Eli Vance, Amazon
25 January 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this card for a new i7 build. It worked perfectly for about two weeks and then the crashes started. Can hardly play any game for more than 15 minutes now. Ati refuses to address the problem, which is very widespread. No one knows the exact source of the issue and while it may just be drivers, there is also a strong possibility of hardware failure. Search "HD 5870 Gray Screen Crash" before you buy this card.

  • Summary: Wait till the NVIDIA 300 series comes out then do your benchmark test and see who creams who. NVIDIA will once again show AMD why they should give it up. Intel already pawned them and yet they still want to try. NVIDIA rulez and ATI is about to learn yet another lesson on early releases. AMD has never made anything worth buying when it comes to benchmarking.
  • Pros: Comparing this card to NVIDIA's GTX285 is like trying to compare apples to oranges.
