It has 3GB of the latest GDDR5 memory clocked at 6000MHz effective, and runs with a core clock speed of 1000 MHz which with PowerTune Dynamic Boost rises to 1050 MHz on the engine. With 8-phase power design and the versatile output configuration of Dual-link DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort.

A must buy for any gamer

I bought this card after going through a million reviews i had nvidia and switched to amd 2 years ago and i can 100 percent recommend this card the best card ive ever had runs every new game on ultra with no problems at all sometimes the graphics look to good runs most games on 80-120 fps couldnt recommend it more ,be very aware this is a monster of a card i had to buy a new full atx case and new motherboard to fit it in it also runs very very cool never gets hotter than 42 but ive got a watercooled system so couldnt say how it would be in a stock unit also its very quiet for such a big card if it would do the dishes id dump my girlfriend for it!


Vaporiser Of A Card!

Well, received this behemoth this afternoon and on the day requested so thank you OverClockers. No Haribo with my order, shame as I'm partial to the tangy little devils lol.

Beware, this card is HUGE, the picture does not show how large it is, you'll need a big case, mine's a Coolermaster CM 690 II LITE dominator and I have about 3/4 of an inch spare at the end of the card where it meets the hard disk bays. I plugged in 2 6-pin pci-e connectors, hooked up the pc to my Samsung tv and pressed the pc power on button, nothing, oh s**t was my initial reaction. Out came the Akasa Venom psu box and I delved around for a spare pci-e connector, found one, 8pin one end that plugs into the modular pse and 6 pin the other, not 8, darn I thought, got onto OC who said I need 2 x 8pin pci-e connectors to power the card properly. After popping my old sapphire 7850 in I popped onto the Maplin website and the OC website looking for 8pin pci-e connectors, found them and was about to go to Maplin and buy 2 cables at a fiver each. For some reason I paused, looked at the 6 way ones I already had and noticed on each of the 6pin cables a 2 pin cable hanging down but wi!
red into the 6 pin jobs. plugged these into the graphics card, powered up the pc and hey presto, up n running, what a relief! Plus I saved myself a tenner! Uninstalled the old AMD drivers and downloaded fresh new ones, installed and booted up Ghost Recon Future Soldier , playing in 3D, my 7850 is a good card but I had to lower some of the graphics options and the screen res to 1280x720 to run this game in 3D decently, not with this baby, 1920x1080, every setting maxed out and in 3D and runs as smooth as butter, not overclocked either. Got 3 downloadable games with a voucher too, Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite and Far Cry Blood Dragon so a pretty good deal. From yesterday you can order this card and others in the 7970 range and get 8 games, gutted !!

This is a thing of pure beauty, if you can afford it (I know its alot) don't hold back!

Do not hesitate to get this card, it is just an absolute dream, it laughs at any game thrown at it and is nice and quiet. Silky smooth frame rates at maximum settings is bliss.

Aweseome speedy service from Ocuk as always.

must buy

I finally got this card after days of reading up what would be the best performance without over spending for a few more fps. I was always putting this card level if not just behind the 680 non ref cards but then I heard about the new drivers for this card that give it a huge performance increase in games ( 12.11 I think ) but the reviews with the new drivers made this thing go 10%+ faster putting it ahead of the 680 cards. Another thing that took me away was the size of this thing! Going from a 6950 his cards large lol in my new zalman z9 case there's only about 1 1/2 inche gap which impressed me! All in all what a fantastic card. WITH the free games and I believe when you use the code for MOH you get a bf4 beta key. What an incredible buy! Thank you Overclockers

great card BUT

Bought this card last week and not dissapointed at all, apart from a very noisy transister.
Will be phoning the RMA department in the next few day

Fantastic Performance

Bought this when it was on extra special offer to replace my hd 6950 and it is a great card with great potential for OC is working stable at core@ 1225 memory@6500
For benchmarking at 3dmark 11 i push the card core@1250 and memory@ 6700(just on 3dmark11 is very hard to keep this setting at all time on stock cooler)
Got P8789 in 3d mark11 with AMD Phenom II x6 1090T @4.0Ghz

Excellent service from OCuK
