Well there you have it. The benchmarks pretty much speak for themselves with the AMD HD7970 leading in all but one game, Batman: Arkham City, itself a TWIMTBP game, heavily optimised for NVIDIA graphics cards. To make matters worse for the GTX580,...

From the onset of our testing it was clear the XFX R7970 BE was going to easily best the reference model in all of our benchmarks, and subsequently become the fastest single GPU graphics card we have tested. This is of course due to the overclocked...

Having just looked at a reference card for the hard launch of the HD 7970, it's interesting to see a non-reference cooling solution on a card with boosted clock speeds so soon – in fact, ready to go at launch. With its higher clock speeds and...

We knew what to expect from the HD 7970 when coming into this review but I had no idea what kind of performance jump we would see with the XFX DD Black Edition Overclocked. With its core speed bumped up to an impressive 1000MHz we saw big jumps in...

It’s not unusual to see factory-overclocked videocards ship with custom cooling solutions—a few months after the GPU launches. This time, XFX hits the ground running with their Radeon HD 7970 Black Edition. This is a factory-overclocked card...

Traditionally the launch of a next-generation high-end video card has been a staggered process. In the name of getting cards out as soon as possible the first cards are almost always reference cards coming preassembled straight from AMD or NVIDIA,...

AMD pulled a fast one by launching the lush Radeon HD 7970 just before Christmas 2011. The firm gave add-in-board partners a January 9 date for releasing their own cards. One would suspect that partners looking to get their cards on shelves would just...

The XFX Radeon HD 7970 3GB Black Edition Double Dissipation is the fastest single-GPU graphics cards we have ever tested at PC Perspective thanks to the new AMD Tahiti GPU and the overclocked speeds that XFX has enabled out of the box. I think we...

o far today we have taken a look at some other brands of Radeon 7970 both in single and CrossFire modes. When it comes down to it though those cards are identical to the reference design card which we reviewed in December and so there was little new...

XFX har med deres R7970 Black Edition 3GB leveret et kanon produkt. Ses der på ydelsen ligger kortet blandt de bedste i hele referencen. Eneste, svære, modstander er GTX680. GTX680 lades dog i støvet i flere tests og GTX670 bankes...
