Meh 2/3 bad....

Andre G., Newegg
27 April 2010
  • Summary: was the last card i bought from xfx, had now a total of 10 bad cards in the last 12 month from this manufacturer, and will not fall for the lifetime warranty again. 5 x 4890's second gen (asus dark knight knockoff fan design) 2 x 4890 first gen 1 x 4870x2 2 x 5870 i think that sums up the...
  • Pros: - price - performance - lifetime warranty (if you dont mind waiting 2-3 weeks on a new card, that might be used!)
  • Cons: - ugly sticker - bad customer support - 2 out of 3 cards artifacting / squealing - bad quality assurance - no option of advance replacement

HD 5780 Problematic

Anonymous, Newegg
8 March 2010
  • Summary: I don't believe this is an issue with XFX; this 1 egg is for the 5870. I've read enough forums in the last week to know this problem is not limited to XFX. I believe the cards were not ready for production, or there was some kind of quality control lapse on A LOT of these cards (which seems...
  • Pros: When they work, the performance is quite good (I'm referring to crossfire and single gpu). In crossfire, I could play Cryis at an average fps of 48 at very high settings. 48 fps in Crysis is VERY playable. With my gtx295 I got about 35-40, but had to move shaders and another settings to high.
  • Cons: The cons far outweigh the pros simply because it doesn't matter how well your card plays your games if it crashes every 2 hours or less. That is what is happening with all of mine (I bought one, rma'd). Got the replacement and ordered a second one assuming the first was just a fluke. It was not a...

Disappointed

ghdjgdf, Amazon
2 March 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.

Total Piece of Trash!

Rod J., Newegg
1 March 2010
  • Summary: I should have bought the nVidia 295. I really wich I could exchange this card, but newegg wont refund me. That kind of surprised me. I can't believe I paid $400 for this piece of junk. I've built 74 PCs for customers so far.
  • Pros: shiny
  • Cons: Outputs dont work properly, I get black screens and a "no signal" message at boot. I have to blindly wait for windows to boot press the hard restart button on my case 3 times in order to get anything to display. - "just google 5870 DVI problems" Slow stuttering video playback, especially when usi...

Defective on arrival

Anonymous, Newegg
1 March 2010
  • Summary: I'm very disappointed with this product, and I lament again the closing of CompUsawhere these cards could be bought and quickly exchanged when they didn't work. I paid overnight shipping, now I have to send it back (and I have to pay for that).
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Paid 404.00 and overnight delivery charge. Card arrived today. After installation, I booted into windows 7 to be greeted with lines running across the screen. The display driver would reset every minute or so, then it would go out completely requiring reboot. This was fixed by creating a temp pro...

GSOD Plagued

TRAVIS H., Newegg
28 February 2010
  • Summary: Replaced every driver and even bought a bigger power supply to see if that would help. Needless to say, no bios setting will get this beast stable. I give it a week before I RMA it.
  • Pros: When it works, it works great.
  • Cons: The GSOD problem is terrible on my card. I can barely play World of Warcraft or Oblivion for more than 10-20 minutes.

Worked fine for a few hours.

Linda R., Newegg
14 February 2010
  • Summary: After installing Windows 7 and installing chipset drivers and then the newest ATI drivers I fired up a few games and they were smooth as glass. Very happy with my new build, I went out to eat and came back to my computer in standby mode.
  • Pros: Very fast. Not very loud with a decent case.
  • Cons: Stopped working after 8 hours.
