Hows it going? Finally got my hands on the HD 7970 Gigahertz Edition and i thought i should do a review for you. Now the sample i have today is the Matrix Platinum Version of HD 7970 from Asus which is a beast in its own right.
This card is clocked higher than any other 7970 Gigahertz Edition in the market and as such it competes directly with the 7970 Lighting as to the specs. Clocking in at 1100 MHz Core and 1650 MHz memory speed this THE fastest 7970 as of now.
Lets take a look what Asus have in their 7970 offerings and then we shall check out more about this card.
