Step up to the SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 11197-12-CPO Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition VGA Card for a new level of gaming experience in the latest FPS, RTS, MMORGP, and RACING titles. It is based on the cutting-edge 28nm GCN architecture, and built around 2048 stream processors and a 3GB/384-bit GDDR5 memory that deliver reality-redefining visuals. This card has latest GDDR5 memory clocked at 6000MHz effective, and runs with a core clock speed of 1000MHz, which with PowerTune Dynamic Boost rises to 1050MHz on the engine.

The Vapor-X cooler is based on a new vapor chamber design. Heat is carried away by four heatpipes (2 x 8mm plus 2 x 6mm), and finally dispersed by two 90mm fans with aerofoil blades and dust repelling bearings. The Vapor-X cooler easily handles the heat generated from the HD 7970 GHz Editions, even under extreme load conditions. Moreover, the versatile output configuration of Dual-link DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI, and DisplayPort offers flexible connections to one or multiple displays.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: High clock speed, high RAM speed and quantity, double fans, direct HDMI out. This card is great. Even running it in PCIe 2.1, it handle any game I throw at it without flinching.

Cons: DisplayPort instead of mini displayport. All my cards before this had 2 mini displayports, so I have plenty of those adapters, but no regulars. Small con that I'll get over.

Other Thoughts: This card is great for a higher end build, it's the same cop as the R9 280x, without the higher price.

5 out of 5 eggsNice upgrade! Great price!

Pros: Excellent upgrade from the 3800 series. Huge savings getting this as a refurb. Effortlessly runs my games at 60 fps with no overheating issues. Idle temps are around 41-48 C. Under load, the highest I've seen it was around 68 C. The fan noise is no louder than my heat sink fan which is a huge win compared to what I use to have.

Cons: I knew this going into it, but the card is massive (over a 11" in length). I have a full sized tower and still had to angle and get a little aggressive to get it in to place. Right now, that is the only con.

Other Thoughts: The only issue I had was that the driver disc was cracked all the way across not a big deal at all.
