ASUS HD7970 Matrix Platinum

Crysis 2

Thanks to some issues with EA and their limited install shenanigans we weren't able to benchmark Crysis 2 on the HD7970s before, but even so we know how they faired in general against the other cards in other games. So it's unquestionably a victory for the Matrix in Crysis 2, which is better than any other single GPU card we've had tested, and if you include the GTX590 or HD6990, a few multi-GPU ones too.

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

Disappointing. Asus make great motherboards but their GPU's feel more fluff than substance.

I really get the sense that they are using the Republic of Gamers branding on products that aren't really that premium. If they continue to dilute the brand it will become worthless. I also don't think the lights on the side of the card are a good idea, makes it look like a cheap afterthought to distract from the cards main fault: Performance.Quote
