1 out of 5 eggsUseless

Pros: There are many pros to this card. I mean, I find it best to keep dust out of my PCI-E slot. Or even store up to 2 spare monitor cables, attached to it to keep dust out of them as well! It even allows you to have long talks with their tech support, and run in circles as they tell you it is your fault their "perfect" card is not working.

Cons: This devices never worked from the start. Tech support suggested I tried new drivers, I try changing setting, and other things. Upon testing these, I was out of the range to return it to newegg, and was out of luck and all hope of ever having a good newegg experience. The computer fails to return from suspension or hibernation, and even powering off the monitors only safely powers on the primary, the secondary failing most of the time. The drivers are a pain to find and install, as PowerColor has their own "drivers." Trying them all gets the same results.
There are plenty of graphical glitches, a set of squares flickering repeatedly in 2D games, and in 3D games there are issues of either the whole screen, or certain models just flickering and overstretching, enough to give a headache and make the whole game unplayable.
Their tech support had me get a new PSU, something that for a poor student like myself, is not easy. Apparently having a higher PSU than recommended was not good enough for them. So after 8 months of not gaming, and wasting my tax return on a PSU well above recommended, all the same problems still persist, and their tech support just throws their hands up saying nothing they can do about it, despite me still having a warranty under them.

Manufacturer Response:


We apologize regarding your experience with the video card.

If you have not done so already, please send the card in for RMA.

Please email if you have any questions.

Thank you,
PowerColor Support

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Good value/performance. Can run all games I play on high settings

Cons: Sometimes see black squares pop up at times, but seems like a driver issue that will hopefully be fixed in the near future.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy!

Pros: Use 13.10 drivers

Very impressive card! Comparable to a 6950. <<---That is not a joke. At first i thought i got a lemon, the 13.12 drivers did not work good AT ALL ( i was getting strange lines going across the screen and the core clock would not go past 988). After installing the 13.10 drivers it was like light and day. No more lines, clocks were at 1188/1650 while gaming. Scored 3500 in 3dMark (My 6970/fx8320 gets 4000). I cant deduct an egg for driver issues. Its new architecture, there is always bound to glitches.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The fans are VERY loud past 50%. But it stays cool at 50%. 50-60c while gaming.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid performer

Pros: * Very low idle power--lowser than the HD 5670 the card replaced
* Drives either DL-DVI and DP flawlessly (I haven't tried HDMI)
* Looking forward to redeeming my code for 2 free games

Cons: * The price has gone up by $20 since I bought a week ago for $140; blame the Bitcoin miners.

Other Thoughts: The card worked perfectly right out of the box. I used the latest AMD/ATI drivers downloaded from their website, not the ones that came on the CD in the box. I've had no issues at all. The card doesn't hesitate to drive 2x 2560x1440 displays, although I didn't try this in-game but just at the Windows desktop. With a single 2560x1440 display, Bioshock Infinite benchmarked itself at over 42FPS average, at Medium settings at full panel resolution.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid This card

Pros: None drivers are awful for all the 260x cards.

Cons: I am running this card with a 750w 80 plus bronze PSU and a 4670 cpu, with a Asrock Fatal1ty H87 motherboard, with current bios and drivers. this card simply has awful driver support, and often black screens or freezes my PC. I have run Prime 95 for hours and several benchmarks, The card never crashes during game benchmarks or games. It only black screens when I am forced to reset for system updates. I am also using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Amd simply has awful drivers and I hate this card. Switching to Nvidia asap.

Other Thoughts: Please avoid this videocard and buy a GTX 650TI if you are looking for gaming on a budget.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good product

Pros: From what I can tell you so far the pros of this card is it's a very high end card and well designed, it isn't difficult to install if you have had experience installing these types of cards before. It runs pretty close to silent as you could possibly get I don't even notice the fans running.

Cons: The only bad thing I could see right off the bat was that I ended up confused as to why the card wasn't posting after turning on my system. I didn't expect it to need a 6 plug connector from the power supply, as I never had any video card that did, I've always run mid end video cards this was my first high end card. So be aware of this when you go to install it.

2 out of 5 eggsProblems :(

Pros: - Could play mobas on Very high (when it works)
- cool and quiet

Cons: I have Windows 8.1. At first the screen went blue with like the static scratchy marks and then restarted. I was like hmm... Then I got disconnected from my monitor and realized whats going on. When I got connected it said something along the lines of "The drivers failed a.... successful recovery". It kept happening over and over when browsing, especially while gaming, like once every few minutes. My computer even rebooted a couple times during extensive work.

Other Thoughts: I tried to re-installing the latest drivers, but nothing. Just to test it out, I played a game with very low settings, with less than 19 FPS. There is no point in having this card if I cant use it to its full potential. Might as well use the integrated Intel graphics.
