VTX3D HD7870 EyeFinity 6 Graphics Card (GHZ) Review

Rating: 8.0.

Today we are taking a look at the new VTX3D HD7870 EyeFinity 6 Graphics card which has been designed to support a raft of high resolution monitors for both work and gaming environments. The card ships with a proprietary cooler and six mini DisplayPort connectors, although VTX3D have decided to ship at reference clock speeds.

We have reviewed a handful of VTX3D graphics cards within the last year, and while they have scored well we feel they are generally a little behind market leaders Sapphire, especially in regards to their cooling solutions.

VTX3D are a part of the TUL Corporation who also sell the Powercolor branded range of hardware.

Sadly VTX3D haven’t decided to offer a core or memory clock increase. The core clock is set to 1,000mhz and the GDDR5 memory is configured to 1,200mhz (4.8Gbps effective), both AMD reference specifications.

    Its a great idea for multiple monitors, but it seems like a half way approach.

    people who want this for business, wont need a 7870, so its overkill as they wont game.

    gamers who want 6 screen support would be better with a 7970 version as it has more power. then they could add another 7970 later for crossfire and added power.

    Make sense or not? I think so anyway.

    seems more suited to business users IMO. small design for business cases, single fan for people who dont really care about a little extra noise. not enough power for gaming on 4 screens or more etc.

    I dont understand the selection. 7970 would make much more sense for this kind of card.

    I think like Jeff, we need it for buisness and I don`t care much about the 3D support so 7750 with 6 outputs is good for me. I need PCIe 3.0 support, because I need fast 2D transfers over the bus.

    Interesting card, currently the best you can have for Eyefinity in 7xxx series, unfortunately, as the two 7970 series who can run 6 screens have mixed outputs resulting in screen tearing, same for Sapphire 7950 FleX which is for a start limited to 1080p (bcos of HDMI) and on top of that has mixed outputs resulting screen tearing.

    What someone should do would be a 7950 or 7970 with 6x DP. For business use one gets off the hook cheaper by going with either 6770 eyefinity 5 edition (like, from example, XFX does and which is on top of being small also a single slot card) or with 6870 Eyefinity 6 which is usually close to 100 euro cheaper and also has 2 Gb of vRAM.
