Poor Quality

Sean S., Newegg
23 April 2012
  • Summary: This was my first and last use of cards made by XFX, i probably won't even buy another AMD-based card for a long time. I loved the specs on this card, but quality control needs to be used.
  • Pros: High clock speeds, does well when its working
  • Cons: Poor driver compatibility with standard drivers. From day 1 this card had issues when running basic 2D applications like my windows desktop. XFX tech staff worked with me but never resolved the issues. Card ran at decent temps, and actually seemed to do better at high temps. I'm guessing the card...

NEVER AGAIN WILL I BUY ATI/AMD PRODUCTS

Philip H., Newegg
17 October 2011
  • Summary: I had always been an Nvidia customer. I've owned a GeForce 2, a 7600 GT, a 9800 GTX+, multiple GTX 470s, and a 520 GT. I've never had any issues with any of my Nvidia cards. This XFX card was on sale a few months back and I decided to purchase it for a friend's birthday.
  • Pros: Fast card...when it works.
  • Cons: This card keeps freezing my computer while gaming (SC2). I've updated all the drivers and it continues to freeze during gameplay. It is extremely frustrating to be in the middle of an online match and suddenly freezing, forcing me to hard restart the computer. I had ZERO problems when I was using...

XFX never again

richard h., Newegg
7 July 2011
  • Summary: I got this card as an RMA from XFX, when my 1yr old 5850 black edition (REFERENCE series) card failed. Their warranty, and customer service was quick and good, but they sent me a better/lesser quality card in return.
  • Pros: NONE
  • Cons: Dont ever send in anything for warranty, you'll get back junk

Richard G., Newegg
31 March 2011
  • Pros: I'm sure it is a great card, if you can get it to pass the POST.
  • Cons: Apparently this XFS card is incompatible with several motherboards. The error I was getting was "Previous overclocking failed!"

What the hell?

Justin K., Newegg
30 March 2011
  • Summary: If all Radeon HD 5870s generate this much heat in within 10 seconds of the system being turned on then I would not recommend this card at all. I had to wait 10 minutes after turning the PC off so that it was cool enough to where I could pull it out and put my old card back in, and even then it was...
  • Pros: None... the card was DOA.
  • Cons: DOA, but I already said that. A major Con would be the RMA return shipping cost and the fact that this product is sold out, which means I probably won't be getting another one returned from Newegg anytime soon...

Highly Dissatisfied

Sarah K., Newegg
15 March 2011
  • Summary: I was ready to praise Newegg for their painless RMA process until today. Today, I received an email stating that my RMA on this card (which was in my possession for a whole two weeks) was being rejected due to the fact that I had removed the UPC from the package for the Mail-in-Rebate.
  • Pros: Physical installation was a breeze. Windows installed without a hitch. Card was quiet. All was sunshine and roses until benchmarking started. Removal of card for RMA was also easy.
  • Cons: Beginning with the attempt to obtain Windows Experience Index rating, this card would hard lock the computer whenever I tried to put a load on the GPU. Almost immediately upon trying to run WEI, vertical stripes on the screen and hard lock. When trying to run graphical benchmarks (3dMark11, in pa...

Poor Quality & Customer Service

Joseph H., Newegg
11 March 2011
  • Summary: I've never dealt with a company that was so unwilling to provide customer satisfaction. They should be ashamed and I wouldn't be surprised if there was a class-action lawsuit brought against them soon. This company won't last much longer.
  • Pros: NONE
  • Cons: These cards, run loud and are unstable. I can only get anywhere from 1-45minutes of game play before they have either hard locked my system or crashed and rebooted them. XFX has horrible customer service and ships back lower end equipment when you RMA the bad stuff they sold you. WHen you do a wa...
