Sapphire HD 7970 3GB

Overclockers Club
18 January 2012
  • Conclusion: When you get down to it in the end what we all want from a new release is to see it out perform not only the prior generation parts it replaces but the competitors best part in its class. The Sapphire HD 7970 does that in spades as the saying goes. It delivers performance well above that of the Northern Islands Cayman based HD 6970 as well as Nvidia's GTX 580 in just about every game tested (HAWX 2 not withstanding).
  • Pros: Fastest Single GPU card out, Great overclocking, High performance, Eyefinity gaming, New Architecture, Zero Core power, Noise improvement
  • Cons: Pricing, Still loud at 100% fan speed

  • Excerpt: We're slowly working our way through our HD 7970s which we have on hand. We started off by checking out the reference card from AMD to find out the kind of performance was on offer from the new AMD model. We then checked out the first card that stepped away from the reference cooler; the XFX HD 7970 3GB Black Edition Double Dissipation .

  • Conclusion: Mit der Radeon HD 7970 hat AMD ein würdiges Spitzen-Modell auf dem Markt gebracht. Dabei strotzt die Karte nur so von Leistung bei sehr gutem Stromverbrauchswerten, dank des neuen 28nm Fertigungsverfahren. Dabei gelang es der Sapphire Karte stehts sehr gute FPS Werte darzustellen, so dass selbst in hohen Auflösungen nie unter 40FPS im Schnitt dargestellt wurden. Auch bei dem Kühler hat AMD sehr gute Arbeit geleistet.
