We have said it before and it is worth saying again here… Let’s get one thing out of the way before we look at the card… its name. We absolutely get that this card performs nearer to the 7800 series than the 7900 series and that gives a reason for it to be called 78xx but for many consumers AMD and their partners calling these Tahiti LE cards 7870 XT, Joker, Myst, whatever… it is just going to cause extreme confusion. Especially when it comes to CrossFire configurations where the XT/Tahiti LE card WILL work in CrossFire with 7950/7970 but WON’T work with 7870/7850. At a push this card could have been called 7875…7880 maybe. Though really would anyone have complained had it been 7910 or something similar? We doubt it… and it would have kept multi-GPU use clear for consumers whether they were looking to pair a 7950 with it, or wondering if a 7870 might work.
Moving to the hardware side of things Sapphire have built an impressive card with their 7870 XT (with Boost). The blue PCB looks good and we were pleased to see a dual fan cooler with decent number of copper heatpipes present to cool the high end GPU. Some other manufacturers have gone with a metal shroud for their card but what Sapphire loose in ruggedness they make up for in lower weight so the change in material isn’t necessarily a negative.
