Hello there

I am currently using the ASUS HD7870-DC2-2GD5 V2, AMD Radeon HD 7870 in my Desktop PC with Windows 7 64bit. Before my question, here are my specs:

Intel i5-3450 4x3,1Ghz
ASUS HD7870-DC2-2GD5 V2, AMD Radeon HD 7870
8GB DDR3 1300MHZ RAM

Now, when gaming, I get screen blackouts. All cables are plugged in, currently using the HDMI Port on my GPU. These Blackouts last about 2-3 seconds while the sound and game itself continues without problems. These blackouts happen while playing different games and sometimes even on desktop with no game running.

Latest Drivers are downloaded, System is about 10 months old. Bought it brand new.

Any idead or known issues?

Thanks!

It's a well documented issue all over the web with the 79xx series. I've made a thread about it here:

Instead of acknowledging the issue, AMD seem to be brushing it under the carpet.

But you do see that I have the 7870 from the 7xxx-Series? Problem with these as well?
