    Club3D 7870 Joker Tahiti LE Review (7950 performance)

    Club3D HD7870XT jokerCard - £177

    Pretty much on par with a 7950, I'm not a fan of Club3D but hard to ignore the price/performance.

    Adding this here, most likely a better cooling solution.

    I don't really understand all of the comments which are saying that 7950 owners should be disappointed. He says that the card is about £170 (the site he is using as a price marker is out of stock) but the cheapest price I could find from a reputable company is £200+. for that price you can get a decent 7950 which has more vram for higher resolutions.

    All that aside, it does have awesome performance and it looks awesome as well. definitely worth a purchase if you can get it for under £179.

    You got some weird pricing than. Overhere the club3d one is 210 euro, and the cheapest 7950 with decent cooler is about 270. Could be because club3d is dutch, but i dont really see why that would matter :P

    Oh yeah I'd take that card over any Club3D, seems like a really nice budget card.

    Looks to be some kind of subsidiary of Powercolor.
