The Deal is Back on PowerColor's HD7870 PCS+ Myst Edition

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 15 comments

Last month we offered a great deal on Tom's Hardware awarded hardware. One of the deals was so popular that Newegg ran out of stock until recently. As a special offer to Tom's Hardware readers, the deal is back!

PowerColor's HD7870 PCS+ Myst Edition card won a Smart Buy award for incorporating a cut-back Tahiti GPU in a $240 package (Tahiti LE, Tested: PowerColor's HD7870 PCS+ Myst Edition), but the card can now be had for less than $210 for U.S. shoppers with the following promotional code:

    Why all the love for this card versus the SAPPHIRE 100354XTL Radeon HD 7870 XT. True, the PowerColor card came out before the Sapphire card, but otherwise the two seem heads above everything, yet the comments at Newegg for the Sapphire product are higher. Curious why the Sapphire card is not in any of your materials (apart from this promotion, it was cheaper by 5 bucks too).

    For sake of disclosure, I bought the Sapphire card and it is great. Perhaps I am looking for reassurance that it was a good deal too!

    Just curious...

    From reading the review why does it use up to 20% more power than a 7950 ?
    Above 70c temps are a little concerning too.
    I'd be afraid to run gpgpu tasks on that thing 24/7

    The only reason I went with the PowerColor card over the Sapphire is because the Sapphire one wouldn't fit in my case. The Myst is 10.5", and I have 10.6" available. The Sapphire is 10.83". That said, I'm digging the Myst just fine.

    Mmm I'm so tempted to buy one but i already have a 7850. I'm guessing it wouldn't be worth it to upgrade.

    The temp and power differences are likely due to the higher voltage on the GPU core. AMD is using cut-down Tahiti cores for the 7870 LE and are likely getting some of those cores from batches of Tahiti cores that have issues but still have at least 3/4 of their shaders working normally. Some of those cores may require more voltage to work properly so AMD has enabled higher stock voltages on 7870 LE chips than the 7950 chips have.

    Figures, I give up and give in to buying an HD 7950 and days later it's back on. Oh well, I guess I got a better card out of it anyway. With my $40 rebate card I could have had this for $169.... I so wanted to do that.

    I was tempted to get this to crossfire with my Asus 7870, quick search lead to finding out it doesn't crossfire with Pitcairn but instead with a Tahiti based GPU oh well.

    Twice toms gets a promo from newegg for this card, and twice they are sold out as soon as I go to buy.
