Mid range beautifully priced gpu. Has the ability to play just about everything you could ask it to.
All the features that AMD has to offer minus the new stuff with the 290/290x
Drivers. I know AMD fanboys all say the drivers improved over the years but at launch they're still just as bad as before. Getting less frames than my gtx 550ti in WoW, HoN, Ac4, bf4 etc. drivers really sucked which is why i returned the card.
I suppose drivers might have fixed the majority of the issues i've had but i couldn't wait that long at launch for the drivers to come out.
It's a 7870xt re brand, or as close to one as it will ever get. No reason to have bad performance at launch due to drivers. I'd buy this again for other builds and hope issues are fixed. It's still hypothetically one of the best price/performance ratios and especially so with mantle doing all sorts of magic with bf4 already.
