5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card!

Pros: This card has more power than you could ever need. If you run only one monitor, you will never get close to maxing it out. With EyeFinity, the card has to work, but it works great! Easy overclocking through AMD Catalyst. I was able to push this reference model to 1050/1450 MHz on stock power. As always, ASUS quality gets 0 complaints from me.
Card runs a little warm, just due to its size, but the card, even overclocked, has never gone above 70C for me.

Cons: Expensive. Priced too similarly to a Nvidia 680, which has a slight edge in performance. Promotions close the gap, but it still ends up being too close in price to a better performing card.

5 out of 5 eggsRadeon HD 7970

Pros: Very powerful graphics card. 3GB of GDDR5 and can handle anything that's thrown at it.

Cons: It didn't come with a second graphics card :)

Other Thoughts: AMD Includes three free games to download through steam. It's a great deal and I'm considering buying another card sometime soon to crossfire.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card, frustrating service

Pros: This card is extremely fast, there is no game you cannot throw at it 1080p with full settings. It also overclocks to amazing speeds, I had mine at 1200mhz with only very minor voltage tweaks.

Cons: The reference design is horrible, and due to the loud fan speeds, I had to leave it at stock clocks, and even then it's very loud, and runs hot. It died on me after about 2 months or so. Asus RMA is alright, I'm very unhappy with the online RMA status checker. So far they have had the card for 9 days, only after I called and gave the tracking number, did they become aware they had received the card, 2 days ago. Now I have to wait additional time for them to repair/replace the card, and their shipping back. I also had to RMA a motherboard a while back, and that RMA status didn't update until I had the motherboard back in my hands, rendering the status update useless.

Other Thoughts: I buy alot of Asus products because they do seem to last, and they stand behind their warranty, even if it does take them a bit. If you buy this card, I'm confident that you'll be happy with it, and hopefully will not have any issues with RMA if it happens to not function correctly. I only docked one egg because even through all the problems, this card is really great!

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Not sure I guess it did run cool when it worked.

Cons: Well I got the card and the performance was worst than my HD5870 with 1gb not OC. Kept getting BSOD (New divers 12,4 at the time). Thought my PS was an issue but 1200watts is plenty for my system and its reading correctly. Thought maybe it was heat also. Ran pretty cool temps were lower than my 5870. This card was NOT cross-fired either.

Other Thoughts: RMA in hopes to get another one but its no longer available. I'm kinda upset because I had to pay for the RMA shipping back in hopes to get a new one. I've NEVER had any issues with Asus before so I just think it was just a funked card it happens. Guess I need to go else where to get this card =/

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I do apologize for your card's performance. Did you send it in for a replacement and nobody looked at the card that had issues? I would think that in an RMA somebody would have at least looked it over to see if repairs could be done. Please contact me at cl-jeremy@asus.com with the reference #1043-587 so we can discuss this further. Thank you.

Regards,
Jeremy
