SAPPHIRE HD 6870 FleX can support three DVI monitors in Eyefinity mode and deliver a true SLS (Single Large Surface) work area without the need for costly active adapters. With the SAPPHIRE FleX solution, the first two monitors are connected to the DVI outputs, as usual. A third DVI monitor can be connected to the HDMI output with the passive cable adapter supplied. Thus three DVI monitors can be used in Eyefinity mode without any additional investment, and the HD 6870 FleX can support up to 5 displays maximum with dual DisplayPort.

  • newegg Sapphire FleX Technology - 3 DVI Eyefinity Out of the Box Targeting maximum flexibility with minimum outlay, Sapphire FleX Technology simplifies AMD’s multi-monitor Eyefinity solution by allowing 3x DVI monitors to be connected to the board ‘out of the box’ WITHOUT the requirement for expensive DisplayPort monitors or Active Adapters.
  • newegg Black Diamond Choke & Full Solid Cap Design Choke is an important component of the graphics card. By working with the component engineer, Sapphire’s Black Diamond Choke is 10% cooler and offers 25% more power efficiency than a normal choke. Improved reliability and better overclocking are also guaranteed by using only high-polymer, aluminum capacitors which possess far superior characteristics than regular aluminum capacitor for a longer product life. When operational temperatures drop by 20°C, the product life span is extended by a factor of ten, when the operational temperature increases by 20°C, the product life span only decreases by 10%.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: This card has been working in my system for just about two years now. No problems at all. It's fast enough to play the latest games, and supports three monitors without any adapters.

Cons: The card can get loud.

5 out of 5 eggsJust Works

Pros: Bought a second one because I like this so much. I have it overclocked most of the time and use it heavily.

Cons: It overheated once and locked up but it was really my fault for the environment I had it in at the time.

Other Thoughts: Always get Sapphire--it just works.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: This card has been great! Has no problem driving several monitors. No heat problem. Can overclock it. But, I haven't had too. As it is very fast running Games like BF3.

Cons: The screen Blacked out occasionally when I first installed the cards. But, once the Display driver was updated to the latest, I have not seen that problem in over a month.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Runs everything I throw at it, at high framerates and doesn't use that much power

It's also pretty quiet.

Cons: None so far, but AMD's software isn't the best (eyefinity with different resolutions would be nice)

5 out of 5 eggsGood Deal

Pros: Delivers on what it said it would. Got my DiRT coupon which I've read is somewhat hit or miss. Runs SW:TOR at 60FPS in non PvP and 25-40 in PvP depending on server load/action. This is all on the high settings. Display is crisp.

Cons: None so far.

4 out of 5 eggsIt certainly has power.

Pros: I am thinking for getting a second one for crossfire.

Cons: Runs a bit hot for my comfort. I understand 70c max is not a scary temp for the 6870. But for longevity I wish it was more around 60c.

Other Thoughts: Guess I'm getting to aftermarket coolers.

5 out of 5 eggsGame on!

Pros: Game on!

I usually do not review a product until I had it for a while, but I could not help myself. THIS CARD SMOKES! I ordered this card on 3/01/2012 @ 1:00 AM EST. I used three day shipping and paid few dollars more for faster processing and got 3/02/2012 @ 7:00PM.

Before the card came, I uninstalled my old drivers. I save the drivers on a flash drive so when the UPS man came, all I had to do was pop it in and run the drivers. Booyah! Up and running. Three monitors (1080p) out of the box.

I was able to play MW3, WM2, and MW1 on high settings.
The box comes with everything you need to get up and running. It even comes with a High Speed HDMI cable. (Do not use the Standard HDMI cable)

The card is big (9 inches) so I hope you have a good-sized case.

If you are using a Cooler Master case with the tool-less design, I suggest you DO NOT use the tool-less clips, use screws, because the card will not sit firm in your case.
WEI: 7.8 and 7.8 out of the box.

Cons: Cons:
Do not get this card because of the so-called free game. I down loaded the game and I thought all was good until I got an error messages staying, “failed to contact key server”. Ok I am a tech guy so I thought I could figure this out. Not so fast speedy. I Emailed steam they got be to me in a few hour which was good. They told me to delete some files and restart Steam. That did not work. I sent another Email and they said:


A staff member has replied to your question:

Hello *********,

Thank you for contacting Steam Support.
Thank you for taking the time to report this issue.
We are aware of the problem and are investigating the issue further.
(End of Email)

Oh well…

It was faster to get my card up and running than to get the game running.

Other Thoughts: My build: you can look but do not touch.

ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68


CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB @ 1600

i5 2500K

Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced <-- nice case

3 out of 5 eggsGreat when working.

Pros: Extremely fast card, first one I got only had 500mb working memory but was still fast.

Cons: Currently have to RMA the card for second time due to them being dead. I would suggest guest getting the none FleX edition unless you are planning on using more than 3 monitors on Eyefinity. Pretty sure all FleX gets you is up to 5 instead of the normal 3.
