4 out of 5 eggsAdequate

Pros: BIOS switch allows easy recovery from bad flash. Was able to squeeze 480 khash/sec out of this card mining litecoins after extensive tuning.

Cons: Fans started 'rattling' when running at low RPMs after running continuously for about 6 months with the fans at 90%. Sounds like a bad bearing. Fans still run fine at high RPMs.

Other Thoughts: Haven't used this video card for anything except mining litecoins.

2 out of 5 eggsBuy a 6950, but not this one

Pros: I have had an XFX Radeon 6950 for 2 years and It's been excellent. I bought this one for crossfire.

Cons: The fans are idiotically loud. I actually removed the cooler thinking that I might swap it with another (I didn't in the end), and discovered that it's very poorly constructed. The Sapphire OC edition has 5 heat pipes, my XFX has 3, this one has 2. I also found that thermal paste had been applied so haphazardly that it seeped off the GPU and onto the board itself. The fans are harder to judge, but I can confirm that they are way too loud. Loud enough that I reverted to a single GPU.

Manufacturer Response:


We apologize for the issue that you are facing with the card. We are currently investigating the cause of this problem. If you would like, you can email me at

Best Regards,

5 out of 5 eggsNice card.

Pros: I purchased this at a good Price to performance ratio, for Scrypt mining. I expected maybe 420kHs, i unlocked shaders and put it outside where Nature could cool it, and it delivers a little over 500khs, stable. It has paid for itself, and the Powersupply, and still pays for its own electricity, and more.

Cons: Fans are built of inferiority, and not easily
stuck my finger in them, maybe accidentally stuck something else in proximity to fan. No Fan grill. Blade broke off, company had no replacement fan assemblies.(non replaceable fan)

Other Thoughts: The card also paid for its own repair. Purchased 2 Vantec Tornadoes and proceeded to assemble the loudest video card cooler that i've ever seen/heard.

4 out of 5 eggsgood card for prce

Pros: temps at idle 32 degrees c at all times

max load temps for any games 60 degrees c

good price range in 2011 = $ 250.00

duel fans are quiet even at 60 percent fan speed after 21/2 years of ownership

runs battlefield 3 ultra settings at 60 fps at 1600-900

runs battlefield 4 ultra settings at 60 fps at 1600-900

runs assassins creed 4 black flag just under ultra at
55 fps at 1600-900

Cons: first power color video card i got died after 2 weeks of use

card is very flimsy and can easily break with no prob if not careful while installing :(

Other Thoughts: have not had any issues since second card which is why i give you 4 stars instead of 1. I understand that sometimes in rare cases that hardware does break of natural causes which is why i gave this card a second chance.....but in future this will not happen again

5 out of 5 eggsMining..

Pros: This card stays cool even when I have the intensity of my litecoin miner at 18. The board will peak out just over 500Kh/s.

Cons: A little long, so I had to rearrange my case to accommodate it, no biggie, but necessary.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent GPU

Pros: I order this Graphics card over a year ago and this upcoming Christmas it will be 2 years since I have had this GPU.I have to say that this can run any game today alongside a good CPU at max settings at a 1080p screen resolution.This graphics card is amazing and I can run metro last light at max settings and get 50-60fps.I can run crysis 3 at extreme settings and get 40-50fps at 1080p.That is impressive,I can also run battlefield 4 at ultra and all settings at ultra at a constant 60fps.Bottom line this is a great graphics card I would recommend this to anyone who wants one.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat GPU

Pros: Until the latest releases in 2013 this GPU has been able to give me solid frame rates over 30 with all games on Max settings at 1080p. I have this coupled with an fx 8350 in case your interested. This GPU can get a bit hot reaching temps over 70 Celsius after prolonged game play. You can keep the temps lower at max fan speed, but they can get very loud.

Cons: when I purchased this Graphics card new the price was worth it. With much better options at the 200$ range I could no longer recommend this GPU for the price in 2013. Look for almost anything other then this card at the 200 dollar price.

Other Thoughts: If you can get this card in good condition used for around 100-125 dollars I would recommend this card all day. It is powerful and will still play all modern games. In the coming years it will not be able to max out settings at 1080p anymore, but the card still performs quite well.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Very Belated Review

Pros: After owning this card for 6 months, I can tell you that this is hands down the best card that I've owned. I upgraded from 2 dual GTX 285s in SLi Mode and I've never looked back. Everything runs stable at 40-60C under heavy load, and can get 55-60 FPS on Skyrim with over 70 mods installed with over 25 land re-texture mods without breaking a sweat. just did a simple overclock with CCC running at 880/1300 and no problems to date.

Cons: Pretty noisy, 60% fans are so loud in my case that my Kinect sensor in the same room cannot sync the mic properly, the PCB is fine, and copper heat pipes seem to be relatively stable, however the fan shroud had me worried for how easy it can flex (I'm used to full case cards), but has done an excellent job venting heat so far.

Other Thoughts: The worst thing about this card is how it's deactivated on Newegg

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing card

Pros: Runs every game on Ultra settings, and at high frame rates. It just laughs at everything you run with it. Even BF3 is no problem for this card if you group it with a decent CPU and good memory.

Cons: So powerful that my old power supply could not give it enough juice. Had to order a new 750w PSU for future crossfire considerations.
Too bad it got deactivated on Newegg. Best HD 6950 Newegg has on its site.

Other Thoughts: Unlocking shaders was simple, and this card has the BIOS switch everyone is looking for.
