5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Super fast, handles anything i can throw at it, APB max settings, Runes of maghic Max Settings, Acelleration in Media encoding via Transcoding Hardware acelleration also awesome with Magix movie edit pro 17 HD.

Cons: Alittle trouble with the card running hot, could be the drivers doing it 11.5 ( gonna test latest one 11.6) using MSI Afterburner to regulate the temp better.

Other Thoughts: its quiet but if my room gets hotthis fan will raise its speed and it becomes louder, but having headsets i dont even notice it honestly. and Best part of all, Its Unlockable to a 6970 which was Double thumbs up for me.

5 out of 5 eggsbeast!!!!!!!

Pros: awesome card runs mostly all games at max erfectly i dont understand why the person earlier said running crysis 2 at 30-40 fps i was running stock setting and the game at max and getting 60 fps running duke nukem at 90 fps definatly recomend flashing bios to 6970 major improvement going to buy a second one and flash it too!!!!!

Cons: the design on the graphics card faces down inside my cast w t f?? lol whats the point of the design???
has issues with rift at full drops down to 15fps??? no clue why and its in main citys mostly also metro 2033 is horribly optimized so this gpu average on it is like 25-30 as long as you dont look at fire... lol

5 out of 5 eggsAswome Card

Pros: This card is a phenomenal card, it's clock speed is high but I wasn't able to unlock it into a 6970, but that's not that important to me anyways.

Runs all games on Max settings.
Mafia 2 - 60-80 FPS
Crysis 2 - 40-60 FPS

But my outdated ram and triple core can't compete with the GPU, bottlenecked.
Has 2GB of GDDR5.

Cons: None so far, gets very hot fast when overclocked.

Other Thoughts: Should of probably ordered a none reference card, maybe even GTX 560.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: This card hasn't given me any issues. I'm running two of these in crossfire and I've flashed both cards to the overclocked (900MHZ/1400RAM) HIS bios located on the techPowerUp article (google search flash 6950 to 6970). No problems at all so far. The card comes with a bios selection switch so if you have issues you can always switch the bios over power up the computer, switch the toggle back and overwrite the bios.

Cons: My only complaint so far is AMD is having issues keeping their crossfire configurations up to date. They are having issues with Brink and the Witcher 2 right now. Updates are coming but they are weeks apart.

Other Thoughts: This is an awesome card. Other's have mentioned getting aftermarket cooled cards but there is no room to upgrade your card to the 6970 (unless you want to void warranty) on those cards. The stock cards, including this one, come with selectable bios switches for this very purpose. I'm very happy with game performance aside from the crossfire profile issues. 35 fps is the lowest i've seen in games with max settings and this could be a driver issue

5 out of 5 eggsCROSSFIRE NOW

Pros: Upped my 2011_3d Benchmark score from 4k to over 7k in Crossfire. The 6950 is a better value than the 6970 and you can up the GPU to 6970 specs with manufacture provided instructions.... yup nothing sinister HIS backs their product.

Cons: Some artifacts in older games.

Other Thoughts: Crysis.... runs like a dream in HD settings. Frame rates 60-80 looking good. I was really happy with the single GPU, but I could not resist the Crossfire set up.

Price wise this was a real good deal, and don't forget eyefinity multi monitor set up.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The card has worked reliably so far at the "stock" settings. Stock in this context meaning the overclocked settings the card already comes set at.

I haven't heard the fan, even during hours of gaming. Pro because of low noise.

Cons: These cards with the reference cooling systems run hot. My case has a 230mm side fan blowing fresh cool air directly on this graphics card and it still reaches the 80s C during gaming. Sure, I could use manual settings and force the fan to higher RPMs, but in my opinion the auto mode should dial in the best compromise of low noise vs. cooling and this card seems to err on the side of low noise too much for me. I don't mind hearing the card a bit if it means better temps.

The 560 Ti costs quite a bit less than this card, yet has better performance in some games.

Morphological AA. It sounded cool, but unfortunately I'm less than impressed with how it looks and performs with this mode enabled, so that's kind of a wash. If you don't know what this is, Google it.

Other Thoughts: I had contemplated doing the "6970 flash" (again, Google is your friend if you don't know what this is) but after researching the topic I found that the difference between this card and the 6970 is only around 10% in the benchmarks where there's the most substantial difference (in others there is less). Ten percent is the difference between a game running at 50 frames per second, and 55 frames per second. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't even notice that in a game, so I decided it wasn't worth voiding my warranty and possibly permanently damaging the card (check the forums, it’s happened).

Honestly, if I had it to do over again I would probably go for a 560 Ti. They run almost as fast as a 6950 in some games, and they even beat the 6970 in other games, they cost quite a bit less and they are said to overclock very well. If you're dead-set on an AMD card then at least get one of the models with aftermarket cooling so you don't have one of these furnaces running in your system

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Big, Heavy and noisy! i had to set up my cables in my gaming case so it will fit. i tough it wasn't powerful enough to play crysis 2 max out. but such a disappointment. (I get a 30 - 35 fps) but it plays well in advance mode. (50+ FPS)

Cons: So far so good. it was a great upgrade from my CFX set up of HD 5770 X2. i could see the difference and it score 7.9 in my windows 7. all my games play well mostly max out and w a smooth frame rate. (as long as my games reach 55 to 60 FPS, I am happy cuz I always use v-sync cuz I hate screen tearing)

Other Thoughts: None really!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Excellent card, I have never heard the cooler even while running DiRT 2 in Eyefinity 3x22". Granted there is a 120mm fan right in front of the card blowing cold air on it all the time (XPS 720). Extra shaders unlocked like a champ and I get the best 3dmark score with 880Mhz core and 1300 RAM

Runs all my games like butter - really looking forward to DiRT 3

Cons: Er, nope.

Other Thoughts: BIOS flash to 6970 failed (no display at all) I tried the Sapphire, HIS, and ASUS one. I also tried using stock HIS ROM and modding the 6970 voltages using RBE. BSoD as soon as Windows started so I think its the voltages that it doesn't like. With 880Mhz Core, 1300Mhz RAM and the unlocked shaders I've just about split the difference between 6950 and 6970.

Not complaining! Free performance, for free!
