Overall and FV

We know the Sapphire HD 7870 FLeX’s cooler performed nearly perfect, and the card itself has the power to play all of the games in our test suite without any issues. Now it’s time for us to put all of the cards features, performance, and price all together to see how it all comes together. Sapphire basically took one of their standard cards with their Dual-X cooler and packed in the ability to run Eyefinity without an active adapter. If you are planning on running Eyefinity without Displayport monitors, this alone has saved you a few bucks. On top of that you get an HDMI cable to boot as well as more DVI connections.

They are planning on selling the card at around $355, about 20 to 30 bucks more than some of the cheapest reference HD 7870’s and in line with some of the overclocked cards. The truth is this card isn’t for everyone, but for those planning on Eyefinity this is an amazing deal. If not, I would be looking at Sapphires overclocked cards; they have the same Dual-X cooler that performed perfectly for us here along with a boost in performance. Either way, Sapphire has given everyone great options like the HD 7870 FLeX, what will be your next GPU?
