5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Where to begin? This is the fastest video card I've ever owned. It blows my old 5770 crossfire build out of the water (even though synthetic benchmarks say otherwise.) Currently running the Battlefield 3 Beta on Ultra settings, getting a crisp 75FPS with vsync on. This card is just fantastic. XFX double life time warranty is also an added bonus.

Cons: -This thing is freaking huge... JUST cleared by Antec 300, had to move my hard drive down a couple of slots.

Other Thoughts: Bought this card second hand off an online auction house /wink. XFX honored my warranty and EVEN gave me a free copy of Dirt 3. XFX is in a league all their own.

5 out of 5 eggsFret not

Pros: Worry not to the few that are wondering why this card is discontinued. Cards such as this one and the GIGABYTE GV-R695D5-2GD-B are both no longer sold because they unlock too easily to the 6970 versions. This was mentioned earlier in the year, which is why I bought one of both the cards mentioned here to CrossFire the two... which is done quite easily I might add. No worries with CrossFire'n different brands, as long as they're the same model, you're good.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: The first time I put some stress on them the fans seemingly got unbearably loud, but it ended up being the Phenom II's stock cooler, which was promptly remedied with an install of AMD's cooler software. As for the cards, they're flawlessly quiet believe it or not. Even taxing this beast... then again, maybe the stuff I'm throwing at it isn't taxing it enough... Everything, needless to say, is maxed out on dual 27" monitors.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast and works great with everything I throw at it!

Cons: I originally had some troubles running this card on my new SandyBridge system when the DRAM was at 1.5V. The display had an annoying flicker that occurred every minute or so, and then every couple of hours it would become totally garbled. When it became garbled it would come back once I disconnected and reconnected the display. Since my monitor is a 24" Apple LED Cinema display connected to the card via a mini DisplayPort connection I figured there were some funnies a-goin' on with my relatively uncommon display connection and/or a compatability problem between the Apple display hardware and the non-Apple video card, but after doing some Google searches I stumbled upon the 1.5V problem this card seems to have with some Sandy Bridge sytems. My DRAM is rated at 1.65V, so I went into the BIOS and bumped the voltage from the default 1.50V to 1.60V, and voila no more problems!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome card

Pros: • Play all i need at max settings, I'm not asking much.
• Colors fit with my Crosshair Formula IV.
• Relatively quiet.

Cons: • I can't find this exact same model to Crossfire. I'm desesperate guys, I don't want the new black XFX6950, I want another one like this.

Other Thoughts: Seriously, is this model discontinued? What happened?

5 out of 5 eggsHD6950

Pros: Excellent price to performance ratio
The drivers seem to be good to go, no problems so far

Cons: Fan is quite noisy past 45%.

Other Thoughts: Quite large, barely fit the Antec 900 case. Had to remove GPU cooling fan mounting bracket in order to fit the card in the case.

On automatic fan control, the fan seems to spend a good portion of its time in the 25-28% range.
This causes the card to idle at about 44-46 Celsius.
Manually setting (via CCC) the fan to 55% has yielded a idle temperature of 33-36 Celcius. The way it should be.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: See below

Cons: Recieved this card about 3 weeks back, first time going with Radeon, been nvidia all my life. Hooked it up, plugged everything in, and black screen on boot up, fan was spinning but not even bios would show. RMAd it back for a full refund, thank bananas, wouldnt let me put G O D.. for neweggs customer service! Decided to go with an EVGA 560 ti OC instead and glad I did, the 560 ti oc keeps up with the benchmarks for the 6950 but at 30 bucks less, and without the hassle of Catalyst driver suckage. Running it right now and playing Crysis 2 on Extreme settings with full AF and AA getting 60 fps outside and 90 inside, fully satisfied...wait this should be on the 560s review...anyway, DOA sorry AMD.

Other Thoughts: Cant really say too much since I didnt get to see it run, but too bad, every product has flawed ones every so often. Gunna go ahead and go with 2 eggs for neweggs amazing support.

5 out of 5 eggshd 6950 is for me mmm

Pros: this card is a beauty..what can i say it plays everything at 1920x1080 max details. I didn't flash bios to a 6970 cause i'm more then satisfied. I did however unlock the amd overdrive not to increase clock or memory settings but just to increase fan to 50%. Card now idles at 40c (with 2 1080p monitors) as opposed to 60c stock 25% fan. Seams never to get over 60c in gaming hardcore. Looks amazing can't wait for new games.
smooth HD playback,can get 4 monitors going couldn't ask for more..unless i was greedy i guess..The warranty was the final sale for me, can't beat lifetime.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: long card just had enough room before my hd cage. Got a antec 900 gamer case with about 1.5 inches to spare.
Weighs as much as a brick it seams (or to many days typing and not enough in the gym) yikes
Will pair this card with a new mobo, cpu, and ram in near future might give me a few more fps as opposed to my little dual core.

5 out of 5 eggsJust. Excellent.

Pros: I upgraded from a 4890 to this little beast. I can't say enough good things about it. First of all, it's obviously at the top of today's card tier and it the shaders unlock to 6970 with ease. Dual-bios, can't beat it.

The best thing about this card? At stock settings, FULL load 24/7 (I fold for the cure), with 50% fan speed, the thing sits happily at 53C. My 4890 sat at 70C under full load with 100% fan speed. No contest.

Overclocking room like no one's business, and unless you're going max-settings on 3-monitor eyefinity, you don't need more than this card. For anything.

Cons: None whatsoever. Double lifetime warranty, even if it breaks. They ship you a NEW one. Don't forget to register within 30 days.

It's BIG though. Sturdy as an ox - my old card flexed from sitting in the PCIE to the edges. This thing is immovable as a brick.

Other Thoughts: I. Love. This card. Eventually I'm getting another one to max out eyefinity when I get my setup for flight sim.

Couldn't be happier. Pricey, but I wish I would have gotten one sooner.

Southern Islands architecture can kiss it. This is an EXCELLENT card. If you're pondering the 1GB versions or non-reference cards, don't waste your time. Check the reviews, they're junk.

Although if you're a real gamer, you don't need me to tell you any of this. And if you're not, this card is probably overkill for you. :)

4 out of 5 eggsIt's Great

Pros: Worked right out of the box. Runs my two (sometimes 3) monitor setup without any problems.

Cons: XFX support website is annoying, Before you can download drivers, you have to join and give up your email address, have the key off of the door hanger card and then have your email address verified. Come On, I'm just trying to install a video card!!!! cut it out with the hoops!

Other Thoughts: I do like this card and my order another when their back in stock and would recommend this card with an FYI warning.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome card

Pros: Part of the reason I went with the XFX is the warranty, which I think is great.

But as far as the card goes its been awesome. Runs crysis on very high settings. I've been maxing out most games so far and they're all running smoothly with an i5-2500k processor.

No problems with drivers yet, everything running smoothly.

Cons: I'm not going to deduct an egg for this, since flashing the bios is just a bonus if it works.

I tried flashing this to a 6970 and was able to do so, but ran into rendering issues after doing so. Glitchy screen, especially while running games. Temps also got pretty hot unless the fan was running over 50%.

I was unable to fix the rendering issues so eventually reflashed it back to a 6950 and its been running normally again with surprisingly low temps.

I'm just glad flashing it back was easy and didn't appear to cause any damage.

Other Thoughts: Mobo: MSI P67A-GD65 (b3)
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500k
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
GPU: XFX Radeon HD 6950 2GB
Case: Cooler Master HAF 922
PSU: Antec Earthwatts EA750
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
