Good card, driver issues

Jeffrey A. Cubillos, Amazon
15 August 2014
  • Summary: Every now and then this card will bluescreen in either win7 or win8. Some people claim it is the bios. AMD really needs to get it together on these cards and their drivers.

Completely worth its cost.

Corey Curran, Amazon

  • Summary: This gpu is amazing and will run games at max far into the future. Its quiet compared to the rest of my computer just sounds like a whisper, but it does get louder if you start to push it. It is big so make sure your rig can hold it and it requires a lot of power need a psu that runs 750w or more and needs a 8 pin and 6 pin connector. Its also only digital so you need a Hdmi cable, DisplayPort, or DVI.

Beware...

Venice IA, Amazon

  • Summary: The card will work great as long as it doesn't conflict with your PC's system BIOS. Unfortunately I found out this issue after I purchased the card (and also got a replacement, as I thought it was initially a bad card). This won't be an issue for all PCs, but you may encounter it and need to be aware!

Excellent Excellent card

Jacob L. Houser, Amazon
19 June 2014
  • Summary: Got to replace a pair of xfx hd7870 black editions in crossfire, handily does what both cards could barely manage. frame time varience is much much smoother than the 7870 crossfire as well (obviously). benchmarked it and got results similar to overclockersclub's posted results. No problems to speak of yet, I have used Xfx's double lifetime warranty in the past and service was good.

best card I've ever owned

Steven J Hamlin, Amazon
10 June 2014
  • Summary: Solid card, extremely quiet, runs everything thrown at it on highest settings on my max resolution 1920 x 1080 monitor. Replaced my old and dying xfx ati 4870 XX edition. I'm a fan of radeon and xfx for life.

Competitive Price for Top-Tier Card

H. Lam, Amazon
7 June 2014
  • Summary: I was looking for a top-tier card to replace my reference HD6950. At the time of writing, the value of this card vastly outweighs the value of its competitor (the NVidia 780Ti), as they produce similar results in benchmarks and this one is at least $100 cheaper than what is offered by team green (as well as having 1GB more VRAM to boot!). Enough about comparisons, let's talk about what I did and didn't like about this card.

Loving it...

Mikhail Bakunin, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: Upgraded from a Radeon Sapphire 6870, and this card blows it out of the water- which is to be expected =). A couple small details got in the way of my enjoyment out of the box. I had the minimum PSU, (750w), and probably not the best 750w psu at that. Off-brand from Fry's. I couldn't get it to run stable on that PSU, but I went for 1000w psu and am now running gloriously. Also I'm running an open-air case so I use MSI Afterburner software to increase the fan speeds.
