VTX3D HD7970 PCIE2 vs PCIE3 Review
3D Mark Vantage
On our standard rig the HD7970 puts out very similar numbers to a GTX580, which is a good start. You can see in the P-Score how much of a difference the New bench rig makes to the score. A 7000 point increase just going from an i7-950 to an i7-3960X.
3D Mark 11
Demonstrating how impressing the HD7970 is, it's ahead of the amazing PNY Liquid-Cooled GTX580. Remember that we're testing the VTX3D at stock here.
