Pros: Great card, Runs everything on ultra
Can overclock well(Though i don't)
Cons: This tier of cards from Sapphire and maybe just sapphire in general have had a bad run of cards. Consistently bad cards.
Other Thoughts: I currently use the hd &970 vaporx(directly compareable) and will be upgraded to this through Sapphire tech support. I have 4maed 4 cards in about a year, and have gone from the Regulard 7970 to the Vapox, to now this.
I will rerate this review once i receive the new r9 card and see how well it performs.
2/4 cards had blown capacitors
1/4 cards had a bad fan
1/4 is currently undiagnosed
Not sure what the issue is but it seems consistent.
If these did not have issues it would be a 4/5 to a 5/5. I left it at 3/5 eggs due to the amazing customer service i have received from them. They have payed for my shipping and worked with me to upgrade twice now to help resolve the issue despite it being an "odd streak of luck" to get 4 defective units in a row.
I understand as much as we want it to be all technology can't be perfect, and they are cheaper than asus or other known better brands so if you want a decent card for cheaper, this is it... but be prepared you could have to deal with RMA down the raod(if you aren't comfortable with that)
