1 out of 5 eggsLifetime warranty my rear

Pros: The card was fast when it came out. If it still worked it would still be sufficient for pretty much any games.

Cons: The card has shown 2d artifacts since I've owned it (the cursor in Windows sometimes becomes a corrupted little block whenever switching between monitors). Now, something has really gone wrong with it and it's actually hard crashing the system (no BSOD, just hard video off and needing to reboot) any time any 3D application is run. I've tried Titanfall, SWTOR, Mass Effect, and Furmark (this crashes the system hard in under 30 seconds). I can run Prime95 for hours, Memtest for hours, and have no issues. The PSU is an EVGA 1KW.

Other Thoughts: I originally purchased this because it was listed as having a 'lifetime' warranty, but it turns out that the warranty is only lifetime if you register the card within 30 days of purchase. It should have been listed as having a 'lifetime*' warranty or something to point you to register. Most people will not investigate the warranty until the card is failing, and by then it turns out it is too late.

Up until I saw another review on here that mentioned the '30 day' registration period, I was operating under the impression that I would go home tonight, pull the card out to get the serial number, call XFX support, and get an RMA worked out. I carefully tested everything to be able to blame the video card explicitly. Lesson learned. Next time, if there's the slightest problem I'll RMA immediately instead of waiting for it to become a show-stopper. And I won't buy another XFX card after being hit by this deceptive advertising. For the last 3-4 years I had been recommending XFX to my peers due to the warranty, but no longer. Back to recommending/purchasing based on quality instead of warranty gimmicks, I guess.

4 out of 5 eggsAfter a few RMAs, I'm happy

Pros: Spectacular graphics. Exceptionally high frame rate, even while playing some pretty demanding games. Works very well with 3D modeling software such as Cinema 4D, 3DS Max, and Maya....

Cons: Needed to RMA a few before getting 3 that work

Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these for different machines. The cards work beautifully, when they work. Initially I got a few bad ones, that only worked for a few weeks each (the 2x power ports went), but now I have 3 of these cards that have been going strong for over a year... they must've fixed the issue

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Gordon,

We're glad to hear your issues have been resolved. If there's anything else i can help you with, please let me know.

1 out of 5 eggsHaving to RMA -again-

Pros: See previous review.

Cons: This is my second time having to RMA my purchase. The first time was for the entire model series specific to XFX having to be replaced, this time it's for a dead fan...Oddly, I received this message from XFX Customer Support:

You've noticed that the front fan (the fan farthest from the bracket) is spinning very slowly and emitting a buzzing noise, based on that the fan is faulty. try to use other DVI and HDMI cables.

Uh yea...Right now I'm just hoping XFX doesn't deny my RMA because this card is an RMA replacement from the previous RMA...

Other Thoughts: With this RMA I'll be out a total of about $30 in shipping costs...Do yourself a favor, don't buy XFX...

Manufacturer Response:

Hello M,
We're sorry you had issues with this card. If you have any questions, please contact us to let us know. We wont reject an RMA for a faulty replacement.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked for a while

Pros: For starters, this card ran everything at Ultra with no problems until recently. I play WOW, BF4, Skyrim, CS:GO, ESO, and Metro:LL. This card could run them with no problems.

Cons: I purchased the card in November 2013 and it worked great until last night when in the middle of a CS:GO map the computer screen flashed, went black and my PC rebooted. I could hear it starting back up but had no video just a HDMI source not found message. I rebooted a few times and still nothing, changed HDMI cable, tried a DVI cable and still nothing. I'm now running an old Sapphire 4870.

Other Thoughts: It's a really nice card with an excellent cooling setup and clean look. I hope I just got a hold of a bad card.

Thank you for the great review, we appreciate the positive feedback.

1 out of 5 eggsSolid card when it worked

Pros: Ran Battlefield 4 and Starcraft II on the highest settings. Of course it slowed down a little in BF4 during intense close quarter battles but I was very happy with it.

Cons: 6 months into owning the card it locks up after about 3-5 minutes of Battlefield 4 (BF4). The only way out is to shut it down through the task manager. If I try to play BF4 again without a full computer restart the game will lock up in 3-5 minutes or less and a full restart is required. Apparently I'm not the first owner with this problem.

I was happy with the card but now it's so frustrating. I opened a support ticket with XFX a few minutes ago so I'll report back either in one week or when I get resolution from XFX, whichever comes first.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

1 out of 5 eggsGood card for a little bit

Pros: Fantastic card when I runs, 60 FPS Ultra settings in most if not all the games I own, including Battlefield 4.

Cons: Sadly, the darn thing shuts down my computer during gaming sessions sometimes. Battlefield 4 shutdowns are very uncommon, but Crysis 3 shuts down after 5 minutes, same with War Thunder (seriously... War Thunder?) and Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (Only when DSFix is on). Other games like Dead Rising 2 for example also shut down my computer after five minutes. I'm limited in the games I can play because of this. It started about a month into ownership, and was fixed with a simple compressed air spray down. Now that doesn't work anymore and I'm afraid to buy new games thinking they'll kill my computer. I did research and saw that this is a common problem with this card, so I know it's not my PSU. Honestly I want to love this card, but I can't with a problem like this.

Other Thoughts: I would give it 5 eggs without a doubt if it worked right.

4 out of 5 eggsXFX Support

Pros: The card ran great for a little over a year, then started rebooting the system. Ran a few tests and isolated it to the card and then reached out to XFX. It's awesome they have lifetime warranties! XFX easily approved an RMA and is now shipping a 280X as a replacement (which is even more powerful than the 7970). Overall, very pleased with XFX.

Cons: It is disturbing that the card died within 2 years... I don't think I have ever had a card die that quickly before. And I tend to keep them for many years (passing them down to other computers and then other family members who don't game once they're really old). If not for XFX great support, I would've rated it MUCH lower.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the great review!

5 out of 5 eggsXFX Customer Support

Pros: Hoping XFX guy here at newegg can help , maybe expidite my situation and make sure it gets taken care of properly.

Still love my cards.

Cons: More of a inconvenience , at this point. Realistically, not going to bad mouth product because of 1 fan failure. Concerned now, with previous problems with XFX having lost all records of Warrenty and told to simply just re-register. Hoping Neweggs XFX rep who answers these will help.

Other Thoughts: Have made 2 very favorable reviews in past for this product. One on 05-13-2013 and most recently, 11-12-2013
Now one of the cards mentioned fan has crapped out.

PS both my cards should have lifetime warrenty since they were registered withing 30 days from purchase.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Digistar, please contact us at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com. I can ship replacement fans free of charge if you indicate which fan is damaged and have a support ticket at xfxsupport.com.

Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsMy last ATI cards... EVER!!

Pros: On first installation and user these cards are great, but it is not until after you begin to use them that their true nature shows it's self.

Cons: First I purchased two of these at the same time as I am doing a Crossfire setup. Of the two cards one was DOA and after dealing with XFX support for 3 weeks I finally convenced them to send me a replacement, Shipping at my expense ofcource!!

Now when I get my replacement I get a new surprise, there are two versions of the card. Apparently this card can come in two flavors even though the product number is the same. One version has 2 DVI ports, the other has 1 DVI and one HDMI. Now hoping this is just a pot difference and not a card difference I connect my replacement and setup my Crossfire setup. For 6 months everything is great, but then trouble starts, I am now experiencing random crashes and system lock-ups when running graphics intensive applications. I know it is the video cards because the offending .dll is the ATI ones.

Now before you ask, yes I can tried driver updates. I have even done complete OS rebuilds 3 times and each time I ensure I use the latest ATI approved drivers and I still have the issue. I have narrowed down the problem to the card I did not RMA already.

So let me experience be a guide. Just go with NVIDIA that or a different manufacturer then XFX.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far So good!

Pros: Runs BF4 BF3, DCS World and Falcon BMS at highest settings. Haven't tried it on Arma yet but then again that game is more CPU dependent too.
Overclocks well and when I'm not over clocked the temp stays below 73C

Cons: None yet. Overclocks well and when I'm not over clocked the temp stays below 73C

Other Thoughts: Used my $25 gift card and got $15 off to offset a competitor thanks to the Great customer service of New egg and acknowledging the money I have spend here through the years :)
