Some customer reviews of Gigabyte HD 7870 OC Ultra Durable 2GB

Most helpful reviews

Alexander, Derbyshire

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Incredibly easy to install though if you have a small case you might need more room.
CrossfireX works brilliantly and have seen minimal frame stuttering with this card.
Every game bar Planet Side 2 (in heavy combat situations) sit at a steady & Constant 60FPS. Being that I can only go that high on my monitor, it is brilliant.
Bad points:
Some work is needed to perfect a CrossfireX setup.
Fraps with a locked frame rate causes heavy frame stuttering when Crossfired.
Is slightly blocked by the SATA3 ports on the MSI 970A-G46 M'board (Not a fault with this card however, just a slight installation/compatibility gripe.)

Joe, Leicester Gamer / IT Tech

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent card, I know that when I bought I was worried what its capabilities were. For those who are curious, it has run every game that I have thrown at it. Battlefield 3 never drops below 70fps with all settings on the highest.
Bad points:
None.

Pete, Wrexham Father, Balding, Geek.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very quiet considering it has 3 fans.
Runs nice and cool.
Can handle multiple monitors without having to run an anti-overheating script (looking at you, nVidia...)
Recognised my monitor configuration accurately.
Bad points:
Quite a long card so make sure you have plenty of space.
Requires quite a meaty PSU, but all muscly cards do.
Doesn't come with any bundled games.
No hardware PhysX.

Manufacturer's Description

Ultra Durable VGA.
GPU Temperature 5%~10% down.
Ultra Durable VGA board provides dramatic cooling effect on lowering both GPU and memory temperature by doubling the copper inner layer of PCB. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable VGA can lower GPU temperature by 5% to 10%.
Overclocking Capability 10%~30% Up.

Power Switching Loss 10%~30% Down.
Ultra Durable VGA board allows more bandwidth for electron passage and reduces circuit impedance. The less circuit impedance, the more stable flow of current and can effectively improve power efficiency. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable VGA can lower power switching loss by 10% to 30%.
