Excellent build/package (except yes memory chips) and could have a place but not when other nice 7870 can now be had for $180!
Regrettably just too late to have any merit. Almost feels like this was built for the Hainan, and PowerColor had it sitting in the wings so they started it up.
Sorry, the 9.5 score for this not-so-great HD7870 is beyond me.
oops .. wrong score .. fixed .. copy and paste error from older review =)
enough evidence to accuse w1zzard of consorting with a devil!
Very generous review considering that this card is $80 more expensive over the cheapest 7870s on Newegg.
I'm a little sad they didn't use one of the Tahiti LE chips for their Devil edition card; would have made the price make a lot more sense.
Ahhh... An 8.5 makes more sense lol.
i initially thought this card would be a double-gpu model. that could have sparked some interest for a reasonable price..
8.9 for my GPU FTW
I asked someone of his own temps about the sapphire 7870 dual fans and got a response of 40-50C
How could it be?
Considering you can get a 7950 for 240 after MIR and 260 before now. This thing is just horridly overpriced
7870 XT > 7870 Devil
Can't believe the Devil stuck W1zz and make him waste his time!
I would pick a NV 760 for around the same price which has much better performance.
I think 760 is in the sweet spot!
This card is a straight-up time machine. For a moment there I thought I was back in 2012
I have to agree, I can only expect the Tahiti Based 7870 for 240, other than that might aswell pick up a Reference model 7870 Pictarin and put aftermarket cooling on it
Thats a sexy looking card...
I wonder if the devil's backplate could be modified to fit my 7970?
Maybe they want to test a new cooling design on a bunch of old gpus before they roll out the new 8k series.
Central fan is for sure larger than two others.
He must be 90mm.
