Easily the best for the price!

This thing is the fastest 6950 out of the box with great overclocking potential!

If you flip the BIOS switch (near the crossfire link) to the second position you will almost definitely unlock the extra shaders so you have the same amount as a 6970!

I've seen benchmarks of these things outdoing Nvidia 570's with ease and also competing with 580's!

The cooler on this thing is wicked to! It does an amazing job at keeping the heat down and it blows all the hot air out the back of the case so you have less heat inside your case keeping other components cool.

Don't hesitate - get one!!

Just remember to put power control up by 20% in CCC or this thing will throttle down under load. It's a minor drawback but an easy fix. Sapphire are currently looking into a BIOS fix for this as far as i know.

Enjoy :)

Fantastic Card

Installed this and with a flick of a switch the card unlocked the extra shaders.

Easy to OC even though it comes factory OC'd, this just flies through games but better still it runs silent and cool. Glad I got this on offer at

monster card

just got this today, ordered yesterday (well done OCUK and royal mail).
upgraded from a 8800gts and even with my old rig (e6600 OC'd to 2.8ghz and 800mhz ddr2 ram and pci1.0a mobo) its run everything i've tried at full settings no problem. over 100fps in the diablo 3 beta! can't wait for deus ex 3 to finish downloading so i can let it at that.

bios unlock switch worked perfectly. total bargin of a card.

awesome card

Purchased 2 for crossfire along with new case and PSU and loving it, even in eyefinity settings (5760*1080 resolution) can stay very high and maxed out for Deus ex. Card has a bios switch changing the number of shaders from 1408 to the full 6970 experience of 1536. Some capacitor whine when stressed but barely noticable once sound is up. All in All Very happy and Overclockers were fast and reliable. ATI FTW

Really nice card

Got two of these in xFire blazing through maxed out BC2 averaging 110fps at 1080p

One of them has a lets out a little bit of a squeel when stressed, but a lot of graphics cards can do that so it's not really specific to this model.

As for the fans, they are audiable but nothing bothersome.

Massive upgrade in speed from an older GTX9800+.
No surprises there, really!
What was surprising is that this card draws LESS power by about 20W in desktop/2D mode compared to my old card. When entering 3D/Games it pulls more power (not a problem :).

Massive kudos to too, this shipped in two days to the Arctic part of Norway using DHL. Let's just say that the shipping cost was worth it!
