SAPPHIRE HD 7870 GHz Edition
OC 2GB GDDR5

The new SAPPHIRE HD 7800 series of graphics cards is based on the third family of GPUs from AMD, which are built by a new 28nm process and feature the highly acclaimed GCN graphics processing architecture.

The Sapphire HD 7870 GHz Edition is equipped with 2GB of the latest GDDR5 memory clocked at 1200MHz (4.8Gb/s effective) with the new dual-extractor technology 'Dual-X' - a highly efficient, multi-heatpipe cooler with dual fans providing quiet and very cool operation during normal operating conditions, and superb cooling performance even under extreme loads.

HDMI (with 3D)

Support for Deep Color, 7.1 High Bitrate Audio, and 3D Stereoscopic, ensuring the highest quality Blu-ray and video experience possible from your PC.

Single-Link DVI-D

Supports Digital monitors up to 1920 x 1200 resolution.

DisplayPort 1.2

Doubling the effective bandwidth of previous DisplayPort implementations, DisplayPort 1.2 now includes support for Multi-Stream - driving up to four separate monitors from a single DisplayPort 1.2 connector (requires DP1.2 monitors or Multi-Stream compatible hub). Or choose a Stereoscopic 3D monitor display, and get a high quality, lossless 7.1-channel audio format along the way.

Dual-Link DVI-I

Equipped with the most popular Dual Link DVI (Digital Visual Interface), this card is able to display ultra high resolutions of up to 2560 x 1600 at 60Hz.

Advanced GDDR5 Memory Technology

GDDR5 memory provides twice the bandwidth per pin of GDDR3 memory, delivering increased speed and higher bandwidth.

AMD Stream Technology

Accelerate the most demanding applications with AMD Stream technology and do more with your PC. AMD Stream Technology allows you to use the teraflops of compute power locked up in your graphics processor on tasks other than traditional graphics such as video encoding, at which the graphics processor is many times faster than the CPU alone.

AMD Avivo HD (DVD/HD-DVD/Blu-ray Playback)

Watch the hottest Blu-ray movies or other HD content at full 1080p display resolution and beyond and enjoy a more feature-rich experience with enhanced Unified Video Decoder(UVD)

AMD CrossFireX™ Multi-GPU Technology

Triple or Quadruple gaming power with AMD CrossFireX™ Multi-GPU Technology. AMD CrossFireX technology supports up to four graphics cards to be used in a single system.

AMD HD3D Technology

Enjoy the most immersive experience possible with full support for High Definition Stereoscopic 3D, a technique that presents 2D images (movies, games, photos) in a format that creates the illusion of three-dimensional depth when using compatible 3D displays, glasses, and software.

28nm GCN (Graphic Core Next) Architecture

New, 28nm GCN Architecture with more efficient process technology puts more transistors in less space, enabling a dramatic increase in Processing Power. Crank the settings, devastate your enemies and bear witness to absurdly high frame rates with AMD Radeon HD7000 series graphics cards. DirectX 11 has never looked this good! Maximum setting and crazy performance shouldn't be a compromise. The AMD Radeon HD7900 Series with the new 28nm GCN Architecture assures that it's not.

PCI Express 3.0

PCI-Express 3.0 delivers double the bandwidth per lane of PCIe Gen 2 for faster GPU (GPU communication-up to 16GB/sec in each direction), maximizing the performance from your GPU when paired with the latest platforms.

AMD Eyefinity 2.0

The next generation of AMD Eyefinity technology is here, featuring all-new support for stereo 3D, universal bezel compensation and brand new display configurations. Face it, the best just got better! Enhancements for AMD Radeon HD7000 series include: Stereo 3D-multi-display, stereoscopic 3D support via DisplayPort, and 16K X 16K maximum display group resolution - with output up to 268 megapixels per GPU.

*To support 3 displays, one of the monitors has to support DisplayPort. With Sapphire Flex Technology, this requirement will not be necessary.
**When running Microsoft Windows XP, Eyefinity Technology supports a maximum of two displays.

GHz Edition

The gigahertz barrier has been broken. Armed with a stunning 1GHz GPU based on the revolutionary GCN Architecture, the AMD Radeon™ HD 7000 GHz Edition (Selected model) is quite simply engineered to annihilate.

OpenGL 4.2

OpenGL 4.2 improves the GPU efficiency by improving the shader process operation and capturing GPU tessellated geometry. The process of modifying an arbitrary subset of compress texture is also simplified. The memory management in handling shaders is more efficient as well.

Best Microsoft DirectX11 Support

The tessellation performance on AMD Radeon HD7000 is up to two times faster than the previous generation, and DirectCompute performance is also faster to accelerate advanced post-processing, filtering, and anti-aliasing techniques. DirectX 11 games have never looked this good!

4 Years of Great Value, then it will die (software tools not too great)

Pros: Great for about 4 years of service.
Good value while it lasted

Cons: My review has to agree with many others; the card lasts very well for 4 years (note that I never taxed it to much as I usually never played any games to their max graphics limit), then the card started crashing consistently. In my case usually I could play a game for maybe an hour and the graphics would have trouble rendering or the full display goes black which crashes anything running at the time.

Other Thoughts: Personally I would not recommend another ATI/AMD graphics card ever again, primarily because of their software plugins not being merged into one location/software package for users to interact with (unlike my NVIDIA cards, I cannot check what I have and update in the same software tool).
However if you need a quick, fairly inexpensive fix (upfront that is) then this is a good option!

Served me well for 4 years and counting

Pros: Still running after 4 years
Works fine even with only one fan (one of the two fans broke about 6 months ago, haven't noticed any perceptible difference)
Quiet at idle, fans spin down very low

Cons: loud and hot (80 C) under load (rendering/gaming)

Good card until crash

Pros: Worked great while it worked

Cons: Got up one morning and no visual, graphics card took a poop. Sapphire tech support very unhelpful, the card was good but would not recommend sapphire just because of pisspore customer service.

Card failed 1 month after warranty expired support refused to RMA it.

Pros: It worked as expected for a time.

Cons: After almost exactly 2 years the card failed. No sign of wear no slow down, just all out failure and no longer gets detected by bios on multiple motherboards.

Other Thoughts: Probably wouldn't recommend this if you plan to keep it for an extended period of time.

Great Performance but so so Quality

Pros: Runs basically anything at high to ultra settings in 1080p

Cons: This Video Card was purchased 7/23/2013, and completely failed 10/30/2016. I got my use of the video card but Sapphire just messaged me and stated that they have a 2 year warranty. I feel like a little bit of an idiot for not knowing this. There are hardware manufacturers that offer 5 year warranties. My last video card had a double lifetime warranty, meaning that the warranty transferred to the person I sold it to. A lot of people really like this brand but I am really disappointed with the warranty. I have an RX 480 that arrives today from Sapphire. I regret buying it now.

Other Thoughts: 2 year warranties are garbage. Don't buy these cards if they can't come with at least a 3 year.

failed in just under 3 years

Pros: Was a great card for first 2 years. Newegg is awesome and did there part perfectly like always.

Cons: starting failing just over 2 years, and failed completely just 2 months shy of 3.

Other Thoughts: Seems these 7870's have a major flaw. Doing some research shows major failure rates after 2 years. radeon refuses to acknowledge the problem. this will be the last time i buy a radeon card.
