The Card

PowerColor's card looks nice thanks to the red highlights on the cooler. The heatpipes stick out a bit; better check to make sure it fits into your case.

The card requires two slots in your system.

Display connectivity options include two DVI ports, one full-size HDMI port, and two mini-DP ports. You may use all outputs at the same time.

The GPU also includes an HDMI sound device. It is HDMI 1.4a compatible, which includes HD audio and Blu-ray 3D movies support. The DisplayPort outputs are version 1.2, enabling the use of hubs and Multi-Stream Transport.

You may combine up to two HD 7870 cards from any vendor in a multi-GPU CrossFire configuration for higher frame rates or better image-quality settings.
