For now then, and possibly for the next year or so, this is all the graphics card most of us are going to need. AMD's loss is our, and Sapphire's, gain.

The Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 OC 2GB is one of the best in its class today. Pre-overclocked, it is 5 to 8% faster than the reference Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition as well as reference-design products from other brands. The original Dual-X cooler endows it...

Faster, cooler and for only another £13 on top of the price of the vanilla AMD Radeon HD 7870 - why wouldn't you go for the new Sapphire HD 7870 OC Edition? The mid-range Southern Islands/7-series/Graphics Core Next (GCN) cards from AMD have...

I was very impressed with how close to the 7950 the HD 7870 performs, however, the price difference between the two cards is so small that the performance we saw makes perfect sense. Sapphire's 7870 that we looked at today will run you about $360,...

As AMD’s 28nm allocation has improved so has the selection of cards available on the market. We’re still in the first phase of the Radeon HD 7000 series rollout, with AMD’s partners building semi-custom cards based on AMD’s...

I'm just going to cut to the chase for this conclusion. I have been sitting here thinking of any negatives this card may have and about the only thing I could come up with is that the cooler dumps its heat inside the case. Truly not a big deal. ...

Last week we reviewed the overclocked XFX HD7870 Black Edition graphics card, and today we look at the Sapphire HD7870 Overclock Edition. This card features a custom cooler, with twin fans and overclocked out of the box settings to appeal to the...

Looking first to the build quality and design of these two cards it is clear that both Sapphire and XFX have improved on the reference design cards that AMD first launched. In each case we have custom PCB's with much improved dual fan coolers and...

The first thing that hit me when I opened the box was the size of the 7850. It is very small at only 210mm of length considering that it is supposed to be a gaming card. When put to a comparison, it is in between the size of a 6770 and a 6870. This...

Sapphire are readying their 7870 cards and first out of the gate is their custom design OverClock Edition. We have one on our test bench today and here is a gallery which shows what Sapphire are...

Bereits in den Schlussworten zum Praxistest der Radeon HD 7970 hielten wir fest, dass AMD mitt der Vorstellung der Radeon HD 7900 Serie einen völlig neuen Weg beschreitet und der in den letzten Jahren verwendeten VLIW-Architektur vollkommen den...

International Review By Hardware.Info on

“Serious gaming starts here”; met die slagzin introduceerde AMD in maart de Radeon HD 7850 en 7870 kaarten. Dat is een verrassend toepasselijke slogan, want als we kijken naar de prestaties, dan kun je zeker met een 7870 vrijwel alle games prima...

Le personalizzazioni apportate da Sapphire garantiscono un buon miglioramento nelle prestazioni, ma soprattutto una sostanziale riduzione del rumore prodotto dalle schede della serie HD 7000.Con il passaggio alle GPU a 28nm abbiamo assistito ad un...
