Gigabyte HD7970 OC Review

3D Mark 11

With the fastest stock speed of an of the 7970s we've tested, and the highest overclock, it's not a surprise to see the Gigabyte leap to the top of our 3D Mark 11 charts. Cracking 10000 P score with a single GPU is stunning.


3D Mark Vantage

Surprisingly the Vantage P score doesn't replicate the results we saw from 11, with neither the stock nor overclocked results matching up to the VTX and PCS respectively.

With the test set to the Extreme preset the clockspeed shines through and takes the Gigabyte to the top of the pile.

A shame to see the blue PCB, despite seeing early pics with a black PCB... still considering a 7950/Kepler (after TTL reviews of course!) upgrade in the future!Quote
