Quite some impressive numbers there for a card in that price range, and a black PCB at last. Someone has been listening.

These Tahiti LE cards are really exciting although I understand that there aren't going to be a lot, if any, of Tahiti LE releases from other manufacturers. It is intended to be a limited edition so get one as soon as you can...they might not be around for that long.

The TUL corporation are a major source for these releases (and TUL either owns or contracts supplies to Club3D, Powercolor and VTX3D). I'm only aware of Sapphire being the other manufacturer to release a Tahiti LE; possibly because of other major manufacturers not wanting to compromise on the existing 7870/7950 price point given the amount of stock they will likely have.

Cards to look out for:
Club3D Joker
Powercolor 7870 Myst
VTX3D 7870 Black
Sapphire 7870 XT

There is also not going to be an AMD reference Tahiti LE. Also worth noting that this will not crossfire with other 7800 "Pitcairn" cards but will work with 7900 cards which obviously have the same "Tahiti" PCB.

This reviewed version of the 7870 is a great value. With a nice look and with benchmarks that are better than any other 7870, also with some interesting results compared with other gpu. All of this makes this a great choice for any one that wants a good product vs cash. Nice review Tom.

Another top review, the time is coming for me to get a new system....

Do you think were gonna see anything from nvidia to counter this card, like a 660 with more shaders unlocked ???

Great review as allways. Was expecting to see a bigger boost in frame rates when overclocked, still a beast of a card for its price.
