ASUS HD7970 Matrix Platinum

You have to look a little way down the graph to see our earlier HD7970 tests, which are the VTX and PowerColor for stock and overclock respectively. Of course we don't expect the stock reference card to match up to the stock ASUS thanks to that factory overclock, and the PowerColor was overclocked to around the same level as the ASUS is out the box. In overclocked trim we're looking for it to handily best the Gigabyte Windforce HD7970.

3D Mark Vantage

An inauspicious start for the beast from ASUS. The Matrix Platinum doesn't actually benefit from our extra overclock and when you compare it to the PCS. In fact the PCS just shades it in the P score and it's only in the Extreme preset that the Matrix manages to squeak out a lead.

 

3D Mark 11

The more shader intensive tests of 3D Mark 11 continue the above result, with the Matrix Platinum not making the most of the clock speeds available, only matching the PowerColor and being beaten handily by the Gigabyte Windforce.

I always hate to see good manufacturers righteously get their bollocks handed to them (Except for NZXT, that was pretty funny!)

ASUS could have at least sent a cherry picked review sample, so they wouldn't look as bad.

By the way, Tom, is it planned for the future to get the graphs in HTML5 instead of Flash (or some sort of compromise). I went on this on a mobile device and none of the numbers would show. Quote
