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, (http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Edition-PCI-Express-Graphics-11196-15-40G/dp/B00BW0XDU6/) but at $430 bucks I figured it was a...
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.
Summary: This is a BIG card. Make sure that your computer case can fit this card as well as power it. Also be weary of where your SATA ports are on your motherboard. This card can block ports that are vertically pointed. Other than that, this card has a very nice build quality (mainly metal). This sleek design is a very nice touch. One thing to know is that one of the DVI ports are only a digital port.
Summary: Ordered the first one Tuesday got it Wednesday put it in and no video out put or detection by the motherboard or windows 7 after about an hour of troubleshooting I packed it back up to ship back to Amazon Wednesday and requested an RMA. Amazon has the best RMA service ever they started shipping me a new card before I could drop mine off at a UPS store which is way better than waiting weeks for a Newegg RMA.
