Pros:

Able to be add another 6870 for tri-crossfire.

Beefy heatpipes.

Cons:

The one that was shipped to me did not work. When I first attached this card, I kept getting random crashes in Windows 7 and BSODs. I tried to find out what the problem was, I thought it was drivers perhaps. However, the computer would exhibit the same symptoms in BIOS as well. I would be in BIOS and the screen would randomly turn black and the computer would become unresponsive. I've tried both PCI-E slots in the computer and it still crashes. I have tried other graphics cards and they work fine, it is only this card that has problems. I have also put this 6870x2 in other computers, and the same behavior happens (random crashes and black screens).

My power supply is adequate, it is a 1000 watt Coolermaster. I know that the power supply is plenty as I have powered two 6870s in crossfire before.

Other Thoughts:

I am very disappointed in PowerColor. I have had good experiences with their cards in the past. I have submitted for a RMA with newegg, hopefully the replacement card will be a functioning sample.

Manufacturer Response:

I apologize for the negative experience and we appreciate your feedback. We have received generally positive reviews for this model so it's certainly unfortunate that your experience wasn't so pleasant. Please contact me directly if you have any questions or if you continue to have problems with the replacement you get back from us. My e-mail is hugo@powercolor.com, thanks.

Hugo
