Have an opportunity to get a Sapphire 7870 xt (boost) for the same price.

But I would have to go pick it up and then sell my old 7870. My problem is I can't figure whether the trouble of picking up the new one and selling the old one is even worth the improvement in performance.

Would you folks bother with it?

Thanks!

I would its a nice upgrade over clocked its even better

Has anybody reviewed 7870 XT crossfire yet? After a quick google search, I couldn't find anything.

Here are the temps running Valley Benchmark 1.0 these are at base clocks




Results for Benchmark



As you can see temps are good and fan only running at 33% I have overclocked the card to GPU 1100Mhz & Mem 1600Mhz temps where ok in the 70's low 80's had to crank fan manually to 70% to keep it at under 80 though biggrin.gif

I'm really happy an owner's club has formed up for these cards.
I've been driving myself nuts since snapping up the PC EZ on sale, and hesitating between opening the packaging and just using it, or sending it back.
All things the same, i just finally popped it in last night.
My temps aren't horrible, my acoustics are... better than before but not what I hoped for.

My EZ was packaged with the 31 bios, so i'm having a jumpy clock, and after a few seconds under load it defaults to 950.
Only thing I've played around with so far is the CCC overdrive fan control. (Ugh not impressed with that interface)

Here's my validation:
http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/fhg8n/

@stock with the EZ cooler:
[Corsair 600T with stock fans (on the list to be replaced) (and top fan pulling air IN)]
[Stock Intel cooler, so not really getting in the way, (next on the list to go)]

On loads I've hit 73C and i'm idling around 32C

^ What are you running the fan at (just auto settings I guess)? I've heard the EZ models actually cooled better than the MYST edition, so curious.

I have mistakenly bought a tahiti le card.

I bought a XFX 7870 DD and i didnt't know that XFX put this chip on the card at new revisions.

Firstly i was really pissed of the high standard voltages of the card. (0.950V IDLE, 1.15 Load).
I wanted to undervolt the gpu with afterburner but it had a voltage lock.

Than i had the idea to modify the bios by hand . And it worked.
Now i have 0.800 Volt in idle and 1.05 Volt under load. with a stock clock of 1100/1500.


Here is a GPUZ Pic of my card


I wanted to join the "OWNERS CLub" but it didn't work, cause i can't choose a xfx card biggrin.gif

I have the fans on auto, so I'm not sure if CCC is doing the job or the card bios itself.
Whatever the stock is, that's what i'm using for now.

The question of shroud vs shroud was driving me nuts - there weren't any actual comparisons.
The EZ does not vent out the back of the case as well as the Myst should,
however from my fan postions and the size of the card, I guess the EZ has more room to "breathe".
The fact the shroud doesn't extend to the bracket bugs me, mostly on aesthetic grounds.

My idle CPU temp (also stock, with still the Intel cooler) has dropped almost 4C, since installing the EZ.
But that was very expected since i now have only one space heater VS the two 9800gt's.
