Conclusion

The HD 7970 comes at a slightly higher price than expected at $550 USD. However, the card manages to pack quiite a punch. The card performs better than a GTX 580 and in some cases the card comes close to an HD 6990. Furthermore, AMD also claims the card can reach 1.2GHz without increasing the voltage. Overall, AMD’s new GPU is a decent offering that currently puts them at the top spot in terms of single card performance. The HD 7900 series is currently set to hit stores on January 9th.
