These are 6870's that are really just rebranded 5870's.
So they pull over 400 mh/s-kh/s without the need to overclock.
All for $130 ($120 after the mail-in rebate).

That's over 100 mh/s-kh/s more than a typical 6870, for the same price as a used 6870 on Ebay.

Hurry and get yours before the vultures come, buy them all up, and then try to sell them at a ridiculous mark-up.

Well I did some math.  If these cards do get 400KH each then 6 of them = 2.4MH and costs $780.  If I build a 4 7950 which will hash also at 2.4MH, it will cost $1200.  The issue is getting 6 working in one system.

Well I found the answers to my questions.
The 6870 have the same power requirement as the 7950 so your adding at least 300W to gain the same hash.

I just noticed that you said this card is actually a 5870 which gets >400 KH at 150W.  For me power(heat) is an issue so I'm trying to be efficient there.

Very true. It all depends on your budget. For a new person building a new rig (or someone just looking to replace their existing 6870s) this is worth it.

Let's say I want to make a cheap 3 gpu rig for a somewhat reasonable price. For example, we will say that all components needed minus the GPUs = $390.

I could make a 3 6870 rig for $780 and get 1.2MH = 1.5MH per $1

or

I could make a 1 7950 rig for $1350 and get 600MH = 0.4MH per $1

or (my situation)

I have a rig currently running 3 Barts 6870's.
By replacing the 3 6870s I get a total increase of ~300MH. (Basically adding another 6870)
And I can easily sell the Barts 6870s for ~$120 each. (same price as the Cypress 6870's after rebate)
It's not a lot, but it's still ~$2 extra everyday just for replacing my old (mining dedicated) graphics cards for brand new mining dedicated cards. (Can't really go wrong with practically free MH/s AND a fresh warranty)

It all depends on how much money the person wants to spend and if they are planning on expanding. Also if they already have the other components like in your example.

1. The 6870 have the same power requirement as the 7950 so your adding at least 300W to gain the same hash.

For your scenario yes, definitely go with 7950s (My main rig is 7950's).

But for people who also need to budget in the cost of the other components, this is a cheaper alternative.

6870 - 400mh/s - $130
7950 - 600mh/s  - $300

Is that 400 Mhash for Bitcoin or Litecoin?

I would guess for both since it is using the Cypress (5870) and 5870s get 400 avg in both mh/s and kh/s.

*Disclaimer*

I do not own any of these yet. I ordered 3 and will receive them probably on Monday. I am basing this on the Feedback given of people reporting that this card is identified as a 5800 series Cypress card.

Thanks. Done. Ordered one to try out. If it works well, I'll probabaly order more (assuming they aren't all sold out). I'm a casual litecoin miner, and I've been needing a decent graphics card for my home theater rig. I figure I can mine with it when I'm not watching movies. If it can eventually pay for itself, so much the better.  Grin

Man you could have waited for me to get my hands on these before you told everyone!   Cry

Now I just have to hope they don't go out of stock…  However, we can assume that Sapphire has quite a few of these laying around.  They obviously had enough 5870's leftover to justify the time spent re-branding it as a 6870.

I swear Sapphire must just buy up chunks of 'old' GPUs from AMD on the cheap and then make runs of cheap cards. The HD 5830 was an incredible hash/$ deal and they appear to have delivered again with this '6870'.

I will confirm/deny as soon as I get them. They are shipping out today, so hopefully I will know Saturday. Otherwise I won't know til Monday. Either way, I will post results.

I am 99% positive that these are NOT rebranded 5870's. A 6870 only has 1120 shaders. A 5870 has 1600, and a 5830 has 1120. I'm pretty sure these are "rebranded" 5830's. Only reason I'm not 100% is because sapphire's site says 1600 shaders, which I'm damn sure is a typo. Sapphire's site has a number of other 6870's which show the correct 1120 shaders, but the one on the top says 1600 which I'm sure is wrong.

It IS a gamble, but a user on reddit http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1csukd/purchased_6870s_from_newegg_that_ended_up_being/ confirms 1600 shaders via GPU Caps, and the last review on Newegg confirms 390-420 MH/s.

I sure hope Sapphire's site is correct. :/
I ordered 3 today, and they should arrive either Saturday or Monday.

Like bitcoiner49er said, it is a gamble. But hopefully it will be worth it.

If the cards do not end up having the 1600 stream processors I am sure we could return them since they are "not as advertised".  Lets keep fingers crossed however (since I purchased one)
