Final Thoughts

The Gainward card might actually look quite familiar to some as it shares the same design as the Palit Revolution 700 Deluxe card we looked at not long ago. The purchase of Gainward by Palit is the whole reason the company is actually now doing ATI based graphics cards.

The thing is, though, as we were impressed with the Palit offering, we are also with the Gainward. Sure, the cooler is huge and placing two of them in a system together is going to be nothing short of extremely difficult; but he card really does tick all the right boxes.

While being more expensive, it's not excessive. And while the cooler is large and makes it a little difficult to install in Crossfire configs, most people will simply find just one card is plenty. Performance is similar to slightly faster over a stock clocked card, but temperatures are down and connectivity is up with Display Port and HDMI present.

At the end of it all, if you want something with even more power but love the overall design, then the "Goes Like Hell" Golden Sample is also available. While the package is a bit on the light side, the card itself is fantastic and if you're looking for one of the meaner HD 4870 X2 cards on the market, definitely have a good look at the Gainward Golden Sample line.
