XFX Core Edition Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition FX-787A-CNFC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5
  • Core Clock 1000MHz
  • 2 x DVI (1 Single Link, 1 Dual Link) 1 x HDMI 2 x Mini DisplayPort
  • 1280 Stream Processors
  • PCI Express 3.0 x16

Pros:

Bought the first one, was really happy, when it was a daily deal/w rebate/holiday-5% off I got a second one for crossfire. GPU scaling has gotten better over time, some of the more modern games will get near perfect scaling. My 3D Mark score in crossfire is higher than the high end gamming PC score that is listed (intel 4770k with single Titan) and my whole system was only 20% more than the price of a single Titan.

Cons:

Some developers are behind when it comes to multi-gpu support and not every game engine scales well even when there is a crossfire profile for it. The only reason I wont knock an egg for this is because you can turn crossfire off at any time and a single card is more than enough to play any current game on high or ultra settings.

Other Thoughts:

The second card, while exactly the same make/model/manufacturer was built differently. while some things are better (there is a better fan/heatpipe setup in the newer card and it is quieter) the newer card operating at a higher voltage. the difference in voltage meant even the slightest overclock would make the computer crash. The was able to be corrected by putting the newer card in the PRIMARY graphics card spot. Also, regardless of what you think is the right PCIe slot, double check your manual-having the second card stuck in PCIe 2.0 4x mode WILL slow you down needlessly.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the great review. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please contact us at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com.
