    What is the point in this GPU?

    >No architectural differences between this "GHz Edition" 7970 and the standard 7970
    >Same crappy stock cooler
    >Slightly different clock/memory frequencies
    >More expensive than a custom 7970.

    Who would be dumb enough to buy this?

    What about GTX 690 ? Isst that one faster than the GTX 680 model? Or is the 690 not a singe cpu... I am confused...
  3. The 690 is a dual-core GPU and it's probably faster than any of the aforementioned GPUs.
  4. ^Dual GPU

    How come this card was not overclocked by the reviewer ?
  5. 7950 Ghz edition won't be enough. AMD should reduce it's 7900 price.
