  • 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.

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.

5 out of 5 eggsacperience_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.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate 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

-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


-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.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card, but not the best

Pros: I bought this card fairly cheap (was on sale). It runs great for the gaming PC I built, almost a year later it still runs great. I can play all the major games (AAA titles) on max settings with decent frame rates and it can handle them with little trouble.

Cons: after about 6-7 months the card can run a little loud, not a big deal to me because I play with headphones and I don't really notice it. It's a pretty big card, so not for a small build. It does have some trouble with a few games but nothing to serious, can run a little warm also.

Other Thoughts: I am happy with it, it has cross fire capabilities and even came with a crossfire bridge. I recommend those building a gaming pc to check this card out if a budget is a priority. So far it has held up to dozens of games ranging from 2d side scrollers to complex games like Arma 2-3, tomb raider, Bioshock infinite, elder scrolls 5, and dozens more all at max settings (Arma 3 at high settings when playing multiplayer). I might buy a second one and crossfire it, or build a second tower for a friend with this card in it.

5 out of 5 eggscool, quiet, powerful

Pros: I have never seen this card go higher than 65c, even playing bf3 on ultra.
The three fans make very little noise. I am planning to get another one for crossfire.

Cons: none

3 out of 5 eggsNot so great.

Pros: On the up side, this card is running very cool. Although i do have a High Air Flow tower. I have kept the temperatures maximum at 50c during any gaming without even touching fan speeds. (40% is the default for the graphics fan RPM)

Cons: This is where i have problems. Even though my temperatures are great, every no an then i will have artifacts. It really just depends on the game and I have done everything i can to figure out the problem. It doesnt do it on every game, or even the best games. Sometimes ill have slightly ones on an old game such as "Age of Empires II HD" or "Guildwars". But if i run skyrim with 2k texture packs and ultra high quality like i have recently , i get no problems at all.
All in all, i regret getting this card for the $199 i paid.

Other Thoughts: Not really much else to say. Its a 50/50 as to whether ill get artifacts in a game or not and i havnt found one solution to the problem.
Also, I am running an normal clock speeds straight from the box in case you were wondering.

2 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted

Pros: pretty much the same card our next-gen systems are using.

Cons: Memory timing chip died on me.

Other Thoughts: First card to ever go out on me. I had a lucky streak that had to end with the most pricey component.
