  • 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. With the original anti-turbulence structure plus the new triangle cooling design, it enhances the efficiency of heat dissipation dramatically by minimizing the flow of turbulence between fans. Therefore, the "Triangle Cool" Technology provides a more efficient air flow for the cooling system.

The Ultra Durable VGA card doubles the copper inner layer of PCB achieving lower GPU and RAM temperature, reduces voltage ripples in normal and transient state achieving better overclocking capability, and allows more bandwidth for electron passage and reduces circuit impedance for more stable flow of current and improved power efficiency.

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.

2 out of 5 eggsProblematic

Pros: The build quality seems decent, and it has all of the port options I required. Noise hasn't been bad either.

Cons: Since installing this card, I've had nothing but issues. First, I'm a linux user using OSS drivers. Coming from another Radeon which has treated me well (HD6870), I expected stability and a decent performance boost in games such as Metro LL. No such luck. As I've now seen many other folks report, the card runs ok for a while, but then it has a tendency to flicker and ultimately lose any signal to my displays. Occasionally, the kernel recovers, but if it happens once, a lock-up is soon to follow.

It's been easiest to reproduce playing XCom, but the lock-ups also happen when simply browsing the web. The card seems to pass various stress tests I've conducted, so I tried other kernel/mesa versions to no avail. Swapping in my old HD6870, everything works beautifully.

My desktop doubles as a pseudo-server, so uptime is very important to me. This card is far too unstable to keep. Perhaps it's an issue that can be fixed with future driver updates or firmware, but it's not worth the aggravation. I will probably try to RMA.

Other Thoughts: My setup:
Software: Gentoo, OSS Radeon Drivers, Mesa 10.2.6, Kernel: 3.16, X Server 1.16
Hardware: Phenom 1100T, 16GB Patriot Viper Xtreme Memory, Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5, Corsair HX-850 PSU, 2x256GB Patriot SSD (Raid 0)

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Solid and reliable product.

After 9 months of intensive gaming sessions, still no issues.

Cons: Under load, the fans are very loud.

The card is also noticeably longer than my MSI Gaming 280x.

4 out of 5 eggsAs Expected

Pros: Performs as expected from experience with a 7970.
Stays cooler than expected in mini itx build (60C under heavy load).
Fans are not noticeable even under heavy load in mini itx case.

Cons: Flimsy plastic frame - I have a Gigabyte 780 Ti windforce, which is not plastic. Was very surprised when I found it was plastic. Perhaps I should have looked at the pictures closely.

Other Thoughts: I should have expected cheaper materials from a cheaper card but the plastic really threw me. How flimsy feeling it is also concerns me.

1 out of 5 eggsTERRIBLE

Pros: It's a decent card when it works.

Cons: I've been tearing out my hair trying to deal with the flickering problem that everyone else seems to. My BIOS is at F60 and there are no updates to address this problem while other manufacturers like Sapphire and MSI are taking care of their customers. I would highly recommend going with a different manufacturer for this card. This is unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte needs better technical support.
