1 out of 5 eggsNot so good

Pros: Works greats... just not all the time

Cons: The first card I got from Powercolor didn't post. I tried it on a second comptuer and it still didn't POST, one long beep three short beeps. After replacing the card it worked, but then after a week it started to not POST intermittently. So I've returned the card unsatisfied with Powercolors ability to make a stable video card.

Other Thoughts: I've got two computers both with 790FX chipsets, AMD all the way. I've been using AMD/ATI graphic cards in these machines for years and never had issues POSTing. After exchanging one card and returning another I'm out about 130 bucks, what a pain.

Manufacturer Response:

It's weird that you would get two cards that would fail the same way (one after about a week of use). If you're continuing to experience issues I'd be more than happy to help you out if you e-mail me directly at hugo@powercolor.com. Thanks.

4 out of 5 eggsPowerful, but finicky

Pros: Plays Just Cause 2 at a steady 60 FPS with DX11 across six monitors. (3840x2048 resolution for me)

Cons: Takes about 20-30 seconds to make any changes to any display settings as each monitor is reloaded. DisplayPort is terrible technology. I don't expect it to last long.

Other Thoughts: I only needed this for 2D output to six monitors for a CPA's workstation, but I played with it before delivering. Eyefinity is really, really cool, but requires expensive adapters or hard-to-find monitors to connect. If you're not going to be gaming, look into a motherboard with three or four PCI-Express slots and cheap GPUs. I have built one that outputs to 8 monitors using such a setup and it is much smoother at 2D setup with fewer problems and requires no expensive adapters. But if you're doing gaming across 3-6 monitors, get it!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

Pros: Couldn't be happier
Runs COD6 on 3 26' screens at 5760x1200 all settings to max, and no noticeable FPS drop, BFBC2 as well with settings to high, Need for speed shift, same all settings to high and it's as fluid as looking out your window...

Cons: Driver's are a little flaky at the moment, settings sometimes revert to 800x600 for no reason and it's annoying (the trick is to create a quick swap profile and to recall settings when it happens)

Other Thoughts: BE ADVISED: there is alot of misunderstanding about mini DP plugs on this thing. In simple terms: any eyefinity card including this one can only operate 2 non Display port monitors through the supplied passive adaptors. If you want a 3rd monitor, you must either buy a monitor that has a DP connection or purchase an ACTIVE miniDP to DVI dual link adaptor that costs about $100. These can be hard to find BUT I HAVE A SOLUTION: Apple makes one and every mac dealer like "BB" has them in stock, It is called MB571Z/A, it costs $114 and it works. I use it and it's perfect, plus I did not need to order online from someone I don't know and wait a month to get it by mail…
