Experience: 3 Months
Very sick looking cooler
Pretty good performance
Good crossfire scaling (6800 series)
Expensive for a 6870 (I got it when it was around $160)
Blue PCB
No over-voltage
It is quite long
I love my card, for the most shallow possible reason. I would Crossfire this if it becomes cheaper.

Experience: 2 Months

Very silent
Low temp
Good performance

Très silencieuse
Basse température
Bonne performance

I really like this video card.
I bought it because my 5850 died.
Performance wise the 6870 is a bit better.
Highly recommended.

J'adore cette carte vidéo.
Je l'ai acheté pour remplacer une 5850 défectueuse.
Elle est légèrement supérieur à l'autre côté performance.
Hautement recommandée.

Good performance and the factory-overclock is nice.
I was initially denied by the MIR. They have given me 30 days to send in another MIR, so be sure to read EXACTLY what they want to have sent in. While the UPC bar code on a box with GIGABYTE written on it and an invoice would be enough for most companies, GIGABYTE requires much more, for no apparent reason. -2 stars just for that.

It's huge. I knew that before purchasing it, but it barely fits into my case, leaving maybe a few millimetres of space between it and the drive mount in my mid-sized tower.

If the size was my only concern, I would have no issue buying another Gigabyte board, but due to the MIR problem I encountered, I won't be buying another one. Why the UPC code and invoice isn't enough for Gigabyte to send me the rebate is beyond me.

Well built, good performance, great cooling solution. Quiet once fan profiles are adjusted (very little cooling hit).
Default fan profile is a little loud. No voltage control, leading to low overclocks. Long.
I'm in the market for an upgrade now, and will definitely consider Gigabyte's newest offerings as well.

Good power for the money
The fan can be noisy in load
I got 2 of these video cards in Crossfire and every game run at max!!! Except for some really high end games like Battlefield 3

Experience: 30 Days
3 fans makes the card run colder and quieter then the refrence. plays games on ultra.
I play the elder scrolls on Ultra with FXAA and with high resolution mods. and still no problem.
it blue? my case is red and black
Good card. I dont feel like ill need to buy a new one any time soon.

windforcu design
lots Artifacts issues
for 6870, its is good price now. with 3 fans design, it runs pretty cool.
if you search this product review, lots people said the card is OC edition and they have Artifacts issues, and this is true...
i bought lots gigabyte before, i just thought this should be ok, but i got bad luck for this card.
after RMA, the new one is working fine, hopefully it will last long. gigabyte should do better for this.

Cool, silent, good perf, smooth 24p video, price point
Large, no exhaust
Fits just fine in the Fractal Design Define R3 (~1cm left to pass some cables). ASUS P6T sata plugs are sideways so no issues even with 6 sata plugged in. Was worried about no exhaust, but the card stays quite cool under load (~55-60), even if OC to 1000mhz, and the bottom of the case where the fans shoot remains very cool (although more heat probably ends up top near cpu area). It's less noisy than 7200 HDDs when idle (40%), and you could lower the speed to 20-25% if needed. On load, fans aren't whiny, noise is non-disruptive. Oh, this is my HTPC as well and it plays 24p video (at 24hz) *much* better than my previous Nvidia GTX260, which tended to skip some frames no matter what (mpc-hc, madvr, reclock). Happy with it.

Experience: 5 Days

Hot and sexy
This graphic card looks really good it looks even better in real life. I recommend it. It is a pretty long graphic card so make sure you have a big enough case.

Reviews from the Web

Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.

Comment: Please ignore previous link (they changed it). Final Thoughts: We’ve taken a look at a few different 6870's and whilst they have been impressive, none have quite reached the potential of this card. Throughout most of our tests, we found that it kept very close to the figures presented by the 6950
