Summary: Worked for 2 days, then made a popping noise and smelled up the room. After this, it was dead. Luckily, XFX honored their warranty and replaced it with a R9 280X, basically a slightly faster version of the same card.
Summary: Not the fastest card in town especially for the price but I needed this a particular item for a friends build and he HAD to have this card. Of course it was over priced for the performance but customer gets what customer wants.
Summary: I was hesitant buying such an expensive graphics card, but WOW! This thing runs like a champ and can handle any game I throw at it. After installing it into my desktop I immediately noticed the effects it had on my computer. This thing will tear though any game I throw at it on max settings; this includes Planetside 2, The Witcher 2, Total War: Rome II (even at its buggy release!
Summary: Decided to try and breathe some new life into my aging 2009 Mac Pro and since I have recently switched from Final Cut Pro to Premiere Pro CC I figured the first stop, (well, the third stop truth be told, right after a new SSD boot drive and 32G of new RAM...) was the video card. I'd heard great things about the Sapphire version of this card, ( Sapphire Edition PCI Express Graphics 11196 15 40G but at $430 bucks I figured it was a little steep for a Franken-Mac experiment...
Summary: I've had this card since it came out early last year and it is a beast of a card! I can play Crysis 3 on High spec at 57-64 FPS, Skyrim Maxed out no AA 60+ FPS, Far Cry 3 Maxed out no AA 57-74 FPS. This is all played at a resolution of 1920x1080. I am AMAZED at the power of this card and how well it holds up to the most graphic intensive games even almost 2 years later!!!! This card also overclocks well.
Amost Double my XFX-R7770 DD in Benchmarks both at Ultra Settings
26 July 2013
Summary: The 7950 almost doubles my benchmarks over the XFX-R7770 DD. I ran 2 game benchmarks, F1 2012 and Dirt showdown. Then Unigine Valley 1.0 (Free Download) Using AMD Driver 13.6 beta 2 All settings were maxed out. Ultra or high settings at 1920X1080, Full Screen, vsync off. Dirt Showdown- 7770= 38.48 avg, /30.33 min, 7950 68.91 avg. / 52.37 min. F1 2012- 7770 DD= 40 avg. min 36, samples run 5732, 7950 DD= 64 avg.
Summary: This is from an user coming from an XFX 6870. I am a XFX fan now, first I believe they are the only one offering lifetime warranty, you cant go wrong with that, second this card is super duper fast for what it cost. Lets hope their $30 rebate comes thru.
