They work just beyond tolerably when they work.
Low framerates in benchmarks (down to 22fps on Heaven 2.5 at full stats, no 3D, 1600x900 res) and best framerates of 60fps when there are very few things to render.
Cards in CrossFireX can't successfully duplicate my monitor from a 20" screen to a 42" screen except on low-power games (only TF2, to be direct).
Game freezes to the effect of restarting my computer.
Cards don't accept driver updates.
---I install updates, it gets to the last item, and then I get a blue-screen. Updates install in safe mode, but I get a blue-screen upon reaching the logon screen.
Foul customer service.
---I've dealt with EVGA before (only cards I've bought in the past), and they, without question, send a replacement card so I can use something while they look at the original card. Sapphire/AlthonMicro absolutely refuses, suggesting I buy another temporary card, or simply don't use my computer.
DirectDraw and Direct3D completely fail, making games like Halo (original) unable to be played.
I bought two of these and connected them via CrossFireX.
If you want quality, go for another brand. I'm never buying Sapphire again. The word is now a profanity in my house, and I hope the business crumbles from the electronics market.
