The gigahertz barrier has been broken. Armed with a stunning 1GHz GPU based on the revolutionary GCN Architecture, the AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition is quite simply engineered to reign supreme. Based on Graphics Core Next (GCN) 28nm architecture, the AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition delivers improved DirectX 11 Tessellation, enhanced Anisotropic Filtering (AF) and revolutionary general computing performance that makes the most of the large-scale stream processor clusters. Along with next generation of AMD Eyefinity, PowerTune technology and ZeroCore Power technology, you'll enjoy mind-boggling experience whether you're playing game, surfing web or doing desktop work.

The exclusive HIS IceQ cooling technology features 4 wide heatpipes, extra large copper heatsink and large single blower to deliver optimized thermal performance while maintaining low noise level. The Black Hole Impeller draws cool air from both sides of the fan, making it ideal for CrossFire setup.

As an added bonus, iTurbo, a user-friendly software assistant, is included to offer you hassle-free overclock with a click of mouse.

Other Thoughts: I look forward to seeing how this runs The witcher

4 out of 5 eggsWorked out ok.

Pros: Runs the games of it's time with great detail, Keeps up with GTA5 years later.

Cons: I bought 2 of these cards. One card was defective.

Other Thoughts: I RMA'd the faulty card and received another good one. Both are still running strong.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic card over the past 2 years

Pros: Runs cool, extremely reliable. Even going into 2015 most games will run on high @ 1080p. Only thing I have played lately that this card has had trouble with is The Evil Within with all the eye candy turned on, and even then the 7870 holds 30-35 fps average.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This was my first HIS card, and I will definitely buy from this manufacturer again. The card has never broken 63c in my case (antec 900) even in hot southern US summers. This is after hours of 99% gpu usage. Incredibly stable with no crashes or problems for almost 2 years now.

4 out of 5 eggsMy first GPU

Pros: I don't know what lead me to want to buy this GPU but I did and I haven't looked back since. I have had it for two years and it has kept up with everything thrown at it from gaming to mining.

Cons: Two main problems I have encountered is that it's large; it fits for me because I have a Corsair 300R but I don't know about many other cases. Another minor issue I have seen is that the front sticker is peeling off as I assume the adhesive is just diminishing.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid and Reliable Card After a Year of Heavy Use

Pros: + Easy Install (my first build)
+ Plays ALL my games (mostly FPS's) at high+ settings @1600x900 50+FPS as of 12/23/2014
+ DVI to VGA dongle included
+ Price/performance ratio is superb
+ Stays cool and quiet as advertised. Can game as long as I want without worries
+ Includes SLI bridge

Cons: - Doesn't have VGA input, but this was not a surprise.
- Once in a blue moon my screen with flash and I will see a message from Windows 7 saying "Video card has recovered from an unexpected error" or something similar. Happened maybe three/four times in all of my ownership. Recovered just fine. Wasn't even gaming. May have just been a driver issue to be patched later.

Other Thoughts: Not the latest gen AMD card (R270 is the latest equivalent), but it only plays maybe 2-3 FPS less for probably $30 less. Drivers are still updated regularly.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome GPU!

Pros: I've owned this GPU for more than a year now, and I must say, I love it! I can run pretty much every game I own (200+) on High-Ultra settings! I have it paired with a FX-8350 CPU (no overclock) and it works great! Never have a problem with it getting too hot or anything, plus, it looks awesome!

Some of the games I play using this card include:

-Tomb Raider (Had to test out the TressFX, and it looked great!)
-Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (No Issues)
-Metro 2033 (No Issues)
-Bioshock 1,2 and Infinite (No Issues)
-Metal Gear Rising Revengeance (Also, No Issues)

Cons: Really the only con I can think of is that the Drivers could use a little work. (Really just a couple issues with older games like Sacred 2)

But it's no big deal, the game still runs good, just a few graphical glitches here and there.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: It's fast, and can run almost every game I play on ultra settings with no lag(Including BF4). It's still running good after 11 months too.

Cons: Its BIG, and the fan gets very loud when playing graphic intensive games.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card!

Pros: - Stays very cool even under heavy load
- Runs the latest games
- Quiet
- Price for Performance

You really can't go wrong with this card. If you're looking for a card that looks great, stays cool, and performs very well then this is the card for you.

Cons: This thing is a beast. Be sure you can fit this in your case before purchasing.

Overclocking can sometimes be a bit of annoyance.

Other Thoughts: This card will run just about any game if you have the CPU to match.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't take the chance. Fan is not reliable at all.

Pros: The card works well when it's able to work. No complaints about its normal performance.

Cons: From the start, the fan for this card has made annoying noises and rattles. The noises would go away for a month, then resurface. After a year, the fan died. Reading other reviews, you'll find that this is a common problem that many people have with this card.

Other Thoughts: Go with another manufacturer/card, trust me.
