  • newegg Exclusive "Triangle Cool" Technology GIGABYTE introduces the latest exclusive "Triangle Cool" Technology to reach a better cooling performance. The latest exclusive technology combines fin with clip module in a special triangle shape.

4 out of 5 eggsRev2 made it right

Pros: we bought this to replace our MSI model that kept having fans fail on it, and couldn't be happier.

It's extremely quiet even at high fan speeds.

Out of the gate it's faster than the MSI 280x was by a few FPS in games (I know it's stock clock is higher)

Heatsink is really easy to clean when it's needed

Cons: Could have used a bit better vrm cooling even with the small back bracket they get freakishly high in the temperature market.

Is a VERY long card, make sure your case can accommodate it.

Still carries the 7970 I/O layout and requires an active mini dp adapter for Eyefinity

Other Thoughts: While it may be based on a dated gpu core, it still holds it's own and is a very good card.

2 out of 5 eggsGood card when works

Pros: A good card when it doesn't crash

Cons: I have had the problem of the card crashing on certain games the first day out of the box. I have replaced my PSU to a higher grade, used my old video card to check if there was problems with the PCI-E slot, and tried different drivers. New PSU didn't fix the issue, old GPU worked fine, and drivers haven't rid the problem totally.

Other Thoughts: Underclocking the card to 950 core clock does help with certain games. Recently have been having some problems again, but may be because I updated drivers.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Crossfires nicely. BF4 just flies now!
Comes with all required hardware.
three fan set up runs cool
Sale price was good bang for the buck. I have used them for 2-1/2 months without any issues.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The crossfire set up uses allot of juice. I need to upgrade my power supply now. Not the cards fault.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Performance, Low Reliability

Pros: Very fast card for the price.
Stock cooling performance is great.
Not noisy despite the 3 fans.

Cons: Reliability.

Other Thoughts: Purchased (2) of these cards for two separate systems. One on 11/13 and one 1/14. So far one of the cards is producing problems usually related to bad gpu ram. The other card has one bad fan. These issues did not make themselves apparent until 3-6 months after purchase but I prefer to review a product after a year to judge its reliability and so far those were the only issues. I would still recommend this card because I do not believe these problems are common enough to say its a bad product and worst case there is still a nice warranty on the card for RMA.

1 out of 5 eggsFailure since day 1.

Pros: None.

Cons: When I purchased this, I knew it was a return and not new as it was missing cables along with fingerprints on it. I was stuck with this as during that time there were shortages on most cards along with being outrageously priced due to people gpu mining. It has failed a few months ago and have not had a chance to get this replaced.

2 out of 5 eggsNot that great

Pros: I found it to be a quiet card and seem to run very well at first. The specs on paper are very impressive but the real world performance is not as exciting

Cons: This card will not perform as well as the card I replaced. The old card was a Gigabyte AMD 6970 2gb card that was loud and hot. It really could handle anything I would do with it but it was showing its age and I figured it was time for an upgrade.
This card did not increase any of the frame rates in any game I played .... stayed exactly the same but it was much cooler and quieter in my CM HAF case.
I started having some trouble in WoTanks and was pulling out my hair trying to figure it out. Game lockups and kicked to desktop with no control until I Ctrl alt del to end the game ... artifacts sometimes and no error messages or anything. Finally I started playing around with OverDrive utility ... made things really bad to overclock and over volt. So I decided to underclock and leave the volts stock. That fixed all my problems and even allowed me to turn up the graphics settings in game without any problems and no decrease in fps.
I think my next card is going to have to be Given to NVidia for the first time in almost 10 years now ... just too many problems with the ATI/AMD cards.
Just think this was a marketing ploy to make the card look good at a price point. The card will not perform at the advertised settings with all games and is not a upgrade over previous generations of cards.

Other Thoughts: I do not write many reviews but this is one I feel that needs to be shared.

4 out of 5 eggsR9 280X Gigabyte Windforce Rev. 2.0

Pros: -Fast
-3GB GDDR5

Cons: -Slower, bigger, more expensive and uses considerably more power than the 9XX series.
-Causing BSOD's until you apply a fix to the drivers
-Poor Drivers

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this card now. I bought mine in July of 2014, before the Nvidia 9XX series.

The 970 is a much better value.

2 out of 5 eggsNoisey

Pros: Great card, performs well, no performance or installation issues.

Cons: This card utilizes 3 high speed plastic fans, which are lightweight and flimsy. They work great at idle, but when this thing spins up under load, you'd be better off gaming in a wind tunnel. The noise this thing produces is next to intolerable.

Other Thoughts: As it was a gift, I can't return or RMA for a Sapphire Toxic.

2 out of 5 eggsgood, for a few days

Pros: Worked beautifully for the first TWO days

Cons: Ive done almost everything in the book for fixing a graphics card manually with software and hardware. I even underclocked the card and still suffer from lockups and flickering. there is only a few times when it does actually perform correctly, and thats in titanfall. But even then i still live in fear of a lock up. as soon as i see flicking i hit ctrl alt del as fast as i can. so unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: My first build, not a great first impression.
