HD7970 Quadfire Eyefinity Review

Introduction

Picture the scene if you will. Your lucky numbers have just come up on the Euro Millions. Your Fortune Cookie had the correct numbers in it. You've just discovered that your recently deceased great Uncle left everything to you, and he was the head of ICI.

Suddenly you're flush with cash and trying to work out what would be best to spend it on. Maybe your eye has been caught by the incredible results we've been getting from the new HD7970. So you splurge out on the very best system money can buy. The creme de la creme.

Thankfully, before you have to make such an outlay, we are here to let you know what you'll be getting for your hard earned.

This is all about gigantic numbers. And a pretty hefty power draw. Plus enough heat to cause premature global warming.

Of course it's worth pointing out straight away that such extreme setups are unlikely to see big results in gaming tests, because games just aren't designed to have this many graphics cards beneath them. Benchmarks are where it's at. However we're going to run the games just to see if any of them happily take advantage of a Quad GPU set up.

Welcome, to the HD7970 Quadfire review.

Nice for a world record beater probs under D-ice how ever completely pointless except for willy waving people. Chances of selling such set ups to people with no brains in this environment is slim. Still doesn't make up for the mess up in the CPU scene though.

you probably be able to heat up your whole home with the ammount of heat they will pump out to..Quote

There are cheaper ways to heat a room, however none quite as impressive.Quote
