  1. Hi, it isn't a Tahiti GPU. The 7870 pricing is still screwed up as you can easily get a Tahiti one for basically the same price.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202024

    This is the best 7870 ^ it has the tahiti GPU.

    This also has it but a single fan cooler and is basically the same price.
  2. That one is most definitely a Tahiti edition (dumb naming scheme and all)- notice the boost clock? Anyway, JJ linked you to two that are out of stock. The EZ you linked is another Power Color Tahiti which is identical to the Myst, just with a different cooling solution. Also, other webpages actually have the "tahiti le" as part of the name (see http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=80887&vpn=AX7870%202GBD5-2DHPPV2E&manufacture=PowerColor )
  3. It is indeed a Tahiti GPU. I know because I have the same card. The memory is clocked at 1500...regular 7870 is clocked at 1200...plus a bunch of other differences...core clock, shaders...It's a Tahiti card.
  4. From what I understand there are two cards from PowerColor with slightly different model names:

    2GBD5-2DHPPV2E -- At first I thought this one was not Tahiti, but it seems it is just really poor model descriptions on the websites.
    2GBD5-2DHPPV3E -- The descriptions on websites indicate fairly clearly it is Tahiti LE -- I own one of these -- it is most definitely Tahiti.
  5. i think its worth the shot but how about this http://pcx.com.ph/powercolor-ax7870-2gbd5-2dhv2.html? is this a good card as well? better or the same as the one posted by TehRoxxo?
