Experience: 3 Months


Great Price. Amazing performance.
This card is basically 7870 with 7900 chip on it.
I also have asus 7950 both card perform almost the same.
I play borderlands 2 and Call of duty with ease.
The only major difference is the cooler on this card. I hate the stock coolers. They do the job but the card runs a little hotter.
I would buy this card again regardless of the single fan heat sink.
Wait for the card to go on sale. its well worth buying.

Experience: 6 Months


good. mir date is 18 mars 2013 not 16 mars
mir date is 18 mars 2013 not 16 mars
Very good card. Run hot with amd driver but wen you control de fan
is ok with a lot more noise. Never recyve the mail in rabate. supose to start 18 mars 2013 not 16 mars 2013 ! frustrating.

Experience: 2 Months


Fantastic card! very solid, great value buy and it is not too loud. Worked like a charm!
The temperature tends to be higher
Combined this with an AMD FX8350 and 16GB of DDR3. Most games can be run on High or Ultra. Very decent and reliable card. This card can be compared to a HD7950. Smart buy and recommended!

Experience: 7 Days


- Great looks
- Does great for gaming on a single monitor
- None so far
Used this in a build for a friend. First experience with a Power Color card and I'm impressed. It looks great and runs cool. It's not shown any problem with any games on a single monitor. Would recommend.

Experience: 1 Months


Price, performance
Wish I hadn't paid an extra $10!
I got this card for $225 AR, just before it came up in the weekly sale for $215 AR.
But that's my only complaint. For the price, this card is hard to beat. The cooler isn't the best, but my card OCs like a champ on very reasonable voltage. Easily outperforms my 7950 boost at stock.

Experience: 1 Days


Amazing price /performance
loud under load
Coming from a 69502gb, I was more than satisfied. I was surprised and amazed at the improvement. 7700 3dmarks score from 5200 on the 6950. 8500 3dmarks at 1100mhz core clock.
idles at 32c instead of 52, very overclock friendly. decent temps.

Just very loud past 50% fan speed.

Experience: 7 Weeks


- fast
- great price for a Tahiti based card
- single fan so it may get loud at higher loads
I bought this as a gift to upgrade my brother's 5850. He noticed the speed bump immediately. Vast improvement in playing his games. SO for this I'm giving the card 5 stars, even though it may get loud at higher loads. Also, don't plan on overclocking it so the firmware upgrade to bios 032 is not necessary for me.

Experience: 1 Days


Great card. Probably can hold its own against the 660 ti.
Factory settings are whack. Requires some tweaking.
A common complaint for this card is the heat and noise but with a bit of tweaking it can be completely irrelevant. The noise at high fan speed is the one thing you can't really help, but you can definitely manage the heat so it doesn't force the fan to blow hard.
The factory set core voltage of this fan is ridiculously high, contributing to a ton of fast heat build up. It can be anywhere between 1188-1250ish mV. You can overclock this card AND you don't even need to be anywhere near these numbers. I recommend you find an overclocking software to reduce the core voltage to 950mV base, which would cool down this card on load big time. Currently running +8%power limit with 1150/1500 on 950mV.

Experience: 5 Days


Very fast
Overclocks well
Great price
2GB of memory will serve anything up to 2560x1600
Long but a single slot cooler
Can be crossfired with another Tahiti GPU.
Comes with Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider for free.
Can run a little hot
Fan gets really lout about 70%
Low ASIC quality
Takes a lot of power
This card is a beast. For the 230$ I paid after rebates and shipping, it is definitely worth the money. At first I had some heat problems but I added 2 more fans to my case and made a collective push/pull sequence (cycle air in from front and back then exhaust through side). It overclocked well to 1225 core and 1550 memory, but nothing further. Plays any game I throw at it maxed out including Tomb Raider and Bio-shock, which coincidentally come free with it! I might have to pick up a second one if my pocket allows.

Experience: 2 Days


-OCs well
-No coil whine!
-Great price
-Doesn't feel cheap at all
-Only 2 year warranty.. but whatever
-Not many accessories, again not a big deal
Great card, OC'ed well, currently at 1175 and 1550. Way better than my old 4870. Great price.

Comment: When it comes to value the PowerColor PCS+ 7870 Myst is hard to fault.
Posted by: David_H @03/28/13
URL: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/powercolor_hd7870_myst/
Comment: The card offers performance above that of the GTX 660 and at times the GTX 660Ti for this price.

URL: http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/49569-powercolor-radeon-hd-7870
Comment: Solid in terms of pure performance but a little lacking in other areas, notably power-draw and noise, the PowerColor HD 7870 Myst straddles a thin sliver of middle ground that limits its appeal to those who want to spend less than £200 on their next graphics card and don't mind sacrificing all-r

Comment: The performance is great with the card pulling numbers well above the Pitcairn based 7870's and just below the Tahiti based 7950 GPUs.

Comment: Lenthgy detailed review of the Tahiti LE in the Myst Shroud. Summary: "The PowerColor PCS HD7870 MYST uses the 'new' AMD Tahiti LE core that is found on Radeon HD 7900 GPUs and performs better than the AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz edition!"

Comment: If you are in the market for a card capable of delivering a great game play experience at 1920x1080 resolutions, then look no further than the PowerColor HD 7870 MYST as it provides near Radeon HD 7950 level performance for Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition pricing.
