steven, gamer/pc builder

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very fast, exceptional bang for your buck, does keep itself relatively cool. The anti aliasing filter actually improved the quality of the image a considerable amount! That was over a 5770 so i was very impressed!
Bad points:
only comes with unit and sli bridge connection, no other adapters ETC
This is a VERY BIG unit i must stress the Power connection is on the side! so be aware. and the length of the unit is HUGE, I personally would have prefered to remove the HDMI port and have a bigger exhaust port.
Does require over a 600W PSU to run at full capacity.

Richard, Peterborough Retired

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The two PCIe power connectors (6+8 pin) are on the top edge near the back so cabling is easy.
So far it runs warm to hot without much fan noise.

I use this as a folding@home doner card which is currently running 24-7 and producing about 51,000 ppd. (inc bonus) on 0x17 projects.

I don't have any moden games to use with it yet so cant report its gaming but it will be a lot better than my old HD 6670 ;-).
Bad points:
The card is long and is the same length as my mother board is wide, so you will need to check if there is room in your case.

You need both PCIe connectors fitted.

Corey, Corby Nothing

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Works great, and it quiet.
Bad points:
One unusual thing, considering it's technically the Tahiti edition, it should be performing better than my original hd 7870, however this gives me 47 fps average in BF4 and my original hd 7870 gives me 55-60 fps average on BF4 (both times at ultra settings). May be because the latter was an overclocked version, but still I woundn't expect this difference. All the specs (bar one) are higher on this card.
