XT2 = second revision of the Tahiti XT chip.
I don't care what it is supposed to mean. In my opinion, it should be XTX, and nothing will change that opinion, because that's all it is, is my opinion.
It should be XTX, and that's that. There is a reason for that, but whatever, this is hardly something really worth talking about.
Binning a product hardly calls for new chip name. It is still Tahiti XT unless they did changes to the silicon which I doubt.
To normal buyers it's knows and GHz edition. Dave, you can call it XTX if you want to.
Grammar police calling!
And I will.
I was saying GHz Edition long before anyone else here was, don't care WTF they wanna call it now, it's XTX, and that's that.
Throws phone on the floor!
Meh, why would you think me as a normal person. I'm special, just like these chips!
You...you's just ewocka jabberwoka.
just a thought but they could have added resonant clock mesh to this and scored higher efficiency and clocks couldnt they, i doubt they did but i am expecting 8xxx might possibly feature it
and in so far as binning goes this is what i frequently alude to, just because they tell you the top end chip is such and such and hits a certain spec profile, that does not mean that that chip is/was the top binned, and AMD or any other company frequently does have a higher bin then your comercially aware of with other exclusive features that work or work best , this bin got freed up for us..
anyways wheres the benches??.
Well for me it's XT PE! because i say so.
Impressive increase in clocks while lowering the voltage, worthy of commendation.
I doubt this will steal any of the thunder the GTX670 through 690 have, they impressed more than this, from the get go.
Good going Amd
Nvidia price drop coming, Thank you
Hmmm 670's or shall it be 680's
7970's consumes 210 watts link http://www.atomicmpc.com.au/Feature/296004,amd-radeon-hd-7970-reference-disassembly-guide.aspx
From http://www.guru3d.com/article/asus-radeon-hd-7970-directcu-ii-review/4 Radeon HD 7970 has 210 watts.
Believe it or not, the high end Radeon HD 7970 has a rated peak TDP (maximum power draw) of just 210 Watt, and that's really all right for a product of this caliber, features and performance.
From http://www.techspot.com/review/481-amd-radeon-7970/page2.html Radeon HD 7970 has 210 watts.
"it still chugs up to 210 watts under load
If they drop the price of the 670. ill get 2! I already was thinking about getting 2 670s
I doubt this will be 500 because price drops of gtx 680 or 670 will only push 7950 and 7870 prices even lower, so its either and will refresh these cards too or Tahiti xt2 will be 550$ like Tahiti xt launch price. Either way and is not being generous this Gen and are trying to be the ones controlling prices and pushing nvidia down unlike how its always Ben in the past
Im thinking the $4 billmark
right where the prices should be...
Are there any good PC games for that super expensive equipment, cause I can play console ports better on proper hardware which is .... a very inexpensive Xbox360 or PS3.
too late AMD..
it will only be little bit faster than a 670..
and trolled the users of the first batch 7970..
Lets just call it the 7990, and refer to the dual-gpu solutions as 7xxx X2 and call it a day.
An All-In-Wonder 7970 would be pretty awesome since you mention XTX. This isn't ATi anymore though.
epic fail post.
Maybe soon? I hope to see this again
Lol must be nice
ya he dont think he is trolling but he is
I'm looking forward to the ASUS HD 7970 XT2 DIRECTCUII TOP - guarenteed monster of a card
I have ran my reference 7970 @ 1100/1500 since i bought it on launch day with zero issues on the default auto fan profile. Surely the new one will be a beastly clocker.
