ASUS Radeon HD 7970 3 GB Launched

ASUS-branded reference design graphics cards are often looked forward to by enthusiasts because they feature minimalist AIB-branding stickers. ASUS' Radeon HD 7970 3 GB graphics card launched today (model: HD7970-3GD5) is no exception to that, except it features a red-colored PCB. It otherwise sticks to AMD-reference PCB and cooler design, as well as AMD reference clock speeds of 925 MHz core and 5.50 GHz (1375 MHz actual) memory. It bundles ASUS' GPU Tweak tool that allows easy voltage-assisted overclocking. In all likelihood, it will be priced on par with every other base model Radeon HD 7970 graphics card from other vendors, around $550.

The 3GD5 on newegg and in the crossfire review have black PCBs. And Asus cards are always priced above the rest. Last time I had one of their cards that was actually priced fairly was the 1950 pro.
