The HIS 7970 X is based on the state-of-the-art 7970 GHz Edition chip with 1 GHz core and 6.0 Gbps memory clock, and features high quality components for full OC potential. With special features seldom seen on competitor's products, such as X elements, IceQ X², iTurbo, PowerTune with Boost and OC equipment, the HIS 7970 X raises the bar high with revolutionary improvement on cooling performance, power consumption and ease of operation. The special metal RIB on the card further strengthens the card significantly!

Not a Technical Review 2/28/2013 12:45:58 PM

Pros: See comments under the "other" section.

Please note this review is based on my experience with the card and not a technical review!

Cons: NONE so far!

Overall Review: Ok so I am a computer noob! I bought this card after reading several reviews on other sites. The card benchmarks higher than many other near sized cards. So far after a brand new build I could not be happier with it. The card has handled every game I have thrown at it plus some light graphics editing. If you are looking for a technical review don't look here. I can tell you that with a decent sized case my computer does not get over 68 degrees at full run. I have the tower sitting 3 feet away and I don't have one complaint about noise. I do plan on experimenting with the eyefinity in the next few months but for now two monitors are plenty fast for me!

So Far So Good 2/27/2013 12:31:50 AM

Pros: Can drive up to 6 monitors in or not in Eyefinity mode, and only takes up two back panel slots. Has two fans and a monster heatsink to draw heat away from the GPU.

Cons: None. But please read my comments in "other thoughts", because this card may not be for everybody.

Overall Review: Price. It's too expensive even for six monitors and most people can put two graphic cards in and drive 8 monitors for half this cost. But I needed to support six monitors and I wanted to do it without taking up more than two slots and without the heat generation of a second card, so this is not a con.

Size. It's a big, long card and can block airflow in an ordinary case, effectively cutting off the lower half of the case interior from the upper half, possibly making the upper half (where the CPU is) warmer and less able to shunt heat away from the CPU. Be sure you have a huge case with good air circulation. The Cooler Master full tower HAF series and other similarly large cases should work well.

Weight. This is a very heavy card. You could break a toe if you drop it on your foot, so don't be a butterfingers and wear shoes anyway when you're installing it! It comes with a somewhat adjustable plastic footstand (called a "weightlifter") that will stand on the PSU and keep the card from sagging and warping your motherboard and the card's socket. You must remember to put the weightlifter in whenever the case is standing vertically, which is pretty much all the time.

Heat. The inside of my case doesn't get hot, but when I'm running a game, this card (combined with the CPU) will warm up the room I'm in. I expected this too; after all, the heatsink is rather huge. Heat is negligible when doing office-type tasks.

Eyefinity. You need monitors with the same resolution before you can run games or other apps in Eyefinity mode. Word to the wise.

I knew all of this before I bought the card, and that's why I don't consider these to be "cons". Furthermore, I would do it all over again, because it allowed me to achieve my needs (one card, double width, not triple). I have not had any trouble with the card.

Plays my older games very well with all settings on max, but I mostly use it for office and creative software. I have not yet used Eyefinity.
