  • newegg Ultra Durable VGA The Ultra Durable VGA card features an array of sophisticated design for improved overall performance. By doubling the inner copper layer of PCB, this card provides a dramatic cooling effect and lower GPU temperatures by 5% to 10%. By reducing voltage ripples in normal and transient state, this card effectively lowers noises and improves overclocking capability by 10% to 30%. Ultra Durable VGA board also allows more bandwidth for electron passage and reduces circuit impedance, achieving 10% to 30% reduction of powering switch loss.
  • newegg "Triangle Cool" Technology GIGABYTE introduces the latest exclusive "Triangle Cool" Technology to reach a better cooling performance. The latest exclusive technology combines fin with clip module in a special triangle shape. With the original anti-turbulence structure plus the new triangle cooling design, it enhances the efficiency of heat dissipation dramatically by minimizing the flow of turbulence between fans. Therefore, the "Triangle Cool" Technology provides a more efficient air flow for the cooling system.

Great Buy

Pros: -4 Years Strong I bought it in 2012 and it still works great (see cons)
-Overwatch running @ 120+ fps on medium settings base overclock. Runs all BF titles at 100+ with medium settings. (on ultra these games probably run around 40-60fps)
-Doesnt go above 70c (when clean)

Cons: -heats up to 90c+ when there is dust in the heat sink (i guess i feel like this card gathers dust faster?)
-lots of driver crashes (i figure its because its an old card)
-the one i have doesn't overclock very well (at least from what I've seen on forums). I believe was only able to get mine to 1310 memory clock and 1175 Core back when i tried.

Other Thoughts: For $200 back in the day this was a great deal. Writing this review before my Gigabyte G1 RX 470 arrives that I picked up for $168 that I'm expecting to blow this card out of the water and I'll be able to use my monitor's freesync. No ragrets. Great card.

Nice and powerful

Pros: It's a very effective video card. I don't game on it, so I haven't needed any upgrade.

Cons: It's really, really long. Almost doesn't fit in my big case.

MiniDP connectors are a bit of a pain, but I knew that going in.

DO NOT BUY FROM GIGABYTE

Pros: It worked for awhile and had good performance

Cons: It started having issues after 14 months. After confirming it was the videocard I RMA'd it and shipped it back to gigabyte. Despite giving them clear instructions, and a video on how to reproduce the problem, they still couldn't. I again confirmed it was the video card, and sent in the card. They sent it back and waited out my warranty so I could no longer return it. Moral of the story, never buy from Gigabyte.

Other Thoughts: NEVER BUY FROM GIGABYTE

acperience_7

Pros: -Quiet
-Great Cooling Performance (max 74C in Xfire)
-ULPS seems to well with this generation (2nd card will turn off when not being used)
-Very nice cooler/bracket. I'm sure it helps considering how heavy the cooler is and the size of the card.
-They suck less power than my last setup which was Tri-fire.

Cons: -Heavy cooler

Other Thoughts: I had 2 of these for Xfire, and they ran very strong! On my setup I could get a 9700 in Firestrike (Performance) consistently (had a 4670k @ 3.6 boost on all cores). Ran my games very well too.

Update for " Gen 3 is Awesome!!!" 2 years later

Pros: While my original video card is still cranking out the power I have added a second identical card and cross-fired the two. Completely amazing results with cross-fire with none of the stuff computer enthusiast's often complain about with this set-up. What a huge boost to FPS in all games of 30-50%.

Firestrike benchmark scores went from 5300 with the single HD7870 to a score of 8699 with two in Cross-fire. Then with another more recent upgrade to an i7 4770k OC'd to 4500mhz the Firestrike score sits at 9307. Comparable to, or beats an i7 with GTX Titan, GTX780 or R9 290.

Battlefield 4 on Ultra settings with full AA runs at a steady 144 FPS

No need to upgrade for another generation of video cards.

Cons: Zero!

Other Thoughts: Original Review Posted 04/16/2012
"Pros:

-Huge upgrade from my GTX 560 2gb card.
-Out benchmarks the GTX 580 by a long shot.
-Runs BF3, Skyrim, Batman AC all at 60 fps with no lag, all settings maxed out.
-Runs Rift at 48-50 fps on full settings (everything maxed...up from 32 fps with the GTX560)
-Renders Graphics Beautifully
-Runs very cool...idles at 24c...48c-55c under load.
-Currently overclocked to 1222/1330 with no adjustment to voltage.
-7.9 on WEI
-3DMark 11 Basic = 7429 with OC


Cons:

-Drivers need work (time fixes that)
-Use to NVidia (however I love this card...well done AMD)
-Not fond of software package....I deleted the Catalyst Control Centre and opted to use MSI Afterburner...seems to have increased fps and benchmarking.
-Does not function with Gigabytes Easytune 6
-Nothing worth losing an egg over.
