Postby Apoptosis » Mon Jul 29, 2013 8:48 am

PowerColor announced a new member of the Devil family, the Devil HD7870. The PowerColor Devil HD7870 2GB video card features a custom three fan cooler and is factory overclocked to 1100MHz core and 1250MHz memory. Read on to see how it performs against several NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 video cards when we put it to the test at 1920x1080, 2560x1600 and 5760x1080.

The PowerColor Devil HD7870 is one wicked little video card. We love the cards devilish theme, factory overclocking and custom PCB and GPU cooler. It even overclocked like a bat out of hell with no voltage tuning required...

I kind of feel bad for AMD only vendors. They are stuck with waiting on AMD to deliver a new product when nVidia just did a refresh. The only real saving grace for the current crop of AMD cards is the Never Settle bundles and the fact that AMD (in my experience) plays nicer with multi-monitor systems.

I would have agreed with you back before May 2013, but after doing multi-monitor benchmarking on more than a dozen video cards since May.... I can say that I've had more issues on AMD than NVIDIA.
