Features    [ Edit | History ]
40nm Technology
Faster clocks, double the transistor density of earlier 40 nm technology. 40nm technology helped make HD6870 series products the most advanced GPUs ever highest clocks speeds, incredible feature integration, full performance and precision all the time, and ability to take advantage of future, higher-speed memories.

Shader Model 5.0
Shader Model 5.0 adds support for indexed temporaries which can be quite useful for certain tasks.Regular direct temporary access is preferable is most cases. One reason is that indexed temporaries are hard to optimize. The shader optimizer may not be able to identify optimizations across indexed accesses that could otherwise have been detected. Furthermore, indexed temporaries tend to increase register pressure a lot. An ordinary shader that contains for instance a few dozen variables will seldom consume a few dozen temporaries in the end but is likely to be optimized down to a handful depending on what the shader does. This is because the shader optimizer can easily track all variables and reuse registers. This is typically not possible for indexed temporaries, thus the register pressure of the shader may increase dramatically. This could be detrimental to performance as it reduces the hardware’s ability to hide latencies.

Pros
5 outputs on the back 3 simultaneously, eyefinity in all its greatness, card looks sick picture is awesome.
Cons
none at all
Summary
bought 2 of theese to fill out my first ever x58 and crossifre setup, love these cards just amazing to use and future proof with the display port, on par with the gtx 470 even though nvidia fanboys denile kicked in and tried to compare them with the 460, stay quite cool but there are some big fans in my haf x case blowing on them also using the incluede fanduct(included with the hafx).

Looks awesome
Easy setup
Fantastic performance
Cons
None
Summary
The box itself looks great. The packaging was very nice. Installation was a breeze, but you'll need a big enough case to fit this card, and watch-out for those usb and sata ports getting in the way.

SC2 & Black Ops & MoH ran with no problems at all on Eyefinity with 3 monitors and on a signle monitor running t 1680x1050 (3DMark Vantage marks scores were also great). Included software and driver worked perfectly, running on Win7 64-Bit. But, I downloaded the latest software and driver anyway.

Pros
Very small size
Runs almost all games perfectly at highest settings
Cons
ATI drivers.. they pull my hair out
Summary
Firstly, this is not due to the card itself. It's driver issues, which honestly, i hated during the installation. i spent hours trying to get catalyst working, but I had no luck.
Finally, a forum member pointed out that i could manaully install the card via windows update. sure enough the card worked.

This card was an upgrade from a 9800gt, and that card was loud. This gigabyte was not as loud as the 9800gt, however, if you cranked up the fan to about 50%, you can really start to hear the fan.

Runs relatively cool at around 40 degrees idle.

Pros
Très bon rapport performence prix.
Construction solide.
Refroidissement silencieux.
Temperature maximum de 70°C enregistré lors de benchmark.
Manufactuirer fiable.
Cons
Pas d'adaptateur mini-display port inclus dans la boîte comme c'est le cas avec la majorité des autres cartes HD 6870 des autres manufacturiers.
Summary
Cette carte graphique est la meilleure affaire en ce moment avec un prix de 240$ en pricematch. Sa performence globale est située entre une HD 5850 et une HD 5870 mais à un prix inférieur avec en plus de nouvelles caractéristiques. Les accéssoires fournis dans l'emballage de Gigabiyte ne sont pas très généreux avec le manque d'un adpatateur mini-display port à display port. Le score obtenu avec cette carte est de 955 avec le Benchmark Unigine en 1680x1050 comparativement à 571 avec une HD 5770 avec un processeur Intel I7 920 u 3.2 GHz. Un très bon achat à recommander.
