The new SAPPHIRE HD 7800 series of graphics cards is based on the third family of GPU’s from AMD built in its new 28nm process and featuring the highly acclaimed GCN graphics processing architecture. The Sapphire HD 7870 GHz Edition is equipped with 2GB of the latest GDDR5 memory clocked at 1200MHz (4.8Gb/s effective) with the new dual-extractor technology - Dual-X - a highly efficient multi-heatpipe cooler with dual fans providing quiet and very cool operation during normal operating conditions, and superb cooling performance even under extreme load.
Doubling the effective bandwidth of previous DisplayPort implementations, DisplayPort 1.2 now includes support for Multi-Stream, allowing you to drive up to four separate monitors from a single DisplayPort 1.2 connector (requires DP1.2 monitors or Multi-Stream compatible hub), Stereoscopic 3D monitor support and adds support for high quality, lossless, 7.1 channel audio formats.
Accelerate the most demanding applications with AMD Stream technology and do more with your PC. AMD Stream Technology allows you to use the teraflops of compute power locked up in your graphics processer on tasks other than traditional graphics such as video encoding, at which the graphics processor is many, many times faster than using the CPU alone.
The new and 28nm GCN Architecture with more efficient process technology puts more transistors in less space, enabling a dramatic increase in Processing Power. Crank the settings, devastate your enemies and bear witness to absurdly high frame rates with AMD Radeon HD7000 series graphics card-DirectX 11 has never looked this good. Maximum setting and crazy performance shouldn’t be a compromise. The AMD Radeon HD7900 Series with the new 28 nm GCN Architecture assures that it’s not.<P> The next generation of AMD Eyefinity technology is here, featuring all-new support for stereo 3D, universal bezel compensation and brand new display configurations. Face it: the best just got better: The enhancements for AMD Radeon HD7000 series include: Stereo 3D-multi-display stereoscopic 3D support via DisplayPort 16K X 16K maximum display group resolution-output up to 268 megapixels per GPU.

The card run's very quiet and is barely noticeable when at idle, get's nosier when under maximum load but that's understandable and it's usually only when playing games so can't hear it anyway.
Only thing is they could have bundled some free games with the card as I know AMD are running lots of offers on this card which include vouchers for free games...
Installation was simple - as it is with most graphics cards - simply remove the blanking plates, click into the PCI-E Express x16 slot on the motherboard, connect the two PCI-E 6 pin connectors, and screw in. The drivers installed seamlessly, and I was gaming on it in no time.
For general use in my dual monitor setup, it runs at a reasonable 40 degrees celcius, and under load I haven't seen it go too far over 60 degrees celcius. All the games I've tested at 1080p have run brilliantly with everything turned up to max. I get over 300 fps in Minecraft normally, and still achieve between 40 and 60 fps with the shaders mod installed (very demanding!) Team Fortress 2 and Battlefield both run at such high frame rates I didn't bother checking. It is a joy to game on, and I honestly can't fault it. It looks brilliant in my windowed case, and doesn't add any discernible noise to my PC.
To conclude, I'd rate this product as brilliant for gamers and PC builders who want a graphics card that can deal with anything thrown at it with no worries of not having enough power. Just make sure you've got around a 600 watt PSU with enough connectors for it, and you'll be perfectly fine!
installation was easy and driver in box was latest drivers
no crash yet on both window 7 and 8 64

for roughly £180 you can play nearly any current gen game with at high/very high setting with a good frame rate. On Smite, planetside 2, and Blacklight retribution i was getting 100-150 fps with everything on high or highest. Played The Witcher 2 and Skyrim(high res texture mods) on high/highest settings with a smooth framerate too. Overclocking is simple with amd overdrive, just be careful with the heating as it can slowly creep up on you, i need better airflow in my case most likely :/
Looking to test this in a Crossfire setup once i get the funds in a couple of months, will report back then and along the way with my experience with any more new releases i get.
All in all, if you're looking for a great budget graphics card then definitely go for this, it's barely more expensive than a gtx 660 and delivers better frames with nearly all games, not to mention relatively good cooling to boot.
Battlefield 3, Assassin's Creed III, and The Witcher 2 all ran at 60-70fps with maxed out graphics.
Warframe maxed out ran between 150-250 fps.

Just a tip, make sure your PSU up to it. Mine ran OK for 3 weeks then failed. You do need to make sure you have or get a PSU up to the job.Published on 14 April 2014 by ASL1956

Not a problem with it, quiet and cool on my games even after 4 hours of playing :D
Most of the cheaper 7870s aren't GHz editions, however this one is. It's based on a reference board but using sapphire Trixx I managed to get 5600MHz memory and 1.2GHz core clock. Read morePublished on 7 Sept. 2013 by Andrew
This card is awesome. I'll try not to sound like an AMD fanboy. I looked at many YouTube videos for benchmarks and this beat the Nvidia 660 by a few fps. Read morePublished on 20 Aug. 2013 by Jacob Creed
