When the HD7970 came out, it was the performance king in the high-end segment then came GTX 680 which took away its crown in gaming.The 7970 Gigahertz edition was AMD’s answer to Nvidia for taking back the performance crown and it succeeded by trading blows with the 680 in gaming and decimating it in the computing part since the Keplar generation of GPU’s have no CU’s. Whereas with the new GCN architecture AMD manged to blend both Computing and gaming performance in one chip.
I personality always look for quality over quantity when it comes to computer components and as such i tend to look at every components with a very critical eye.
When I received this product i had high hopes since this is a premium top of the line product and am happy to say it didn’t disappoint me and i had a lot of fun reviewing this card.
Coming to this card in particular Asus has brought out a monster performance wise.
From a gamers point of view it can play any kind of games i could throw at it, even Crysis 3 at acceptable frame rates.So that’s a winner in my book.
From an overclocker’s point of view this card has everything an overclocker could ever want from his tools.
So all in all a good card made by Asus
In terms of ratings it’s a 4.5/5 from me, and when i have shown the performance number to my team they agreed to my views.
So there you have it..
a 4.5/5 from Team OCFreaks and i would recommenced this to anyone who wants the best of the best at a sub 40K budget.
so that takes care of my review.
In the end i would like to thank a few people:
- Asus India for providng me the sample.
- Team OCFreaks for supporting me throughout.
- Mr Sanjib Ray for helping me out with his camera and his valuable tips on photography,without him the pictures would have been much worse.
Until next time..
