    I doubt the new GHz edition will bring anything new in terms of raw over clocking potential.


    I'm very happy with my Sapphire HD7950 OC 950mhz Edition which I have found a sweet spot of 1300/1600 @1.22v.

    I wouldn't trade my HD7950 for any GTX670.

    ... You got a 1300Mhz-core operating HD7950?!

    Glad you posted the thread cool reading that as well as giving me more info on my future card upgrade...odd though that several reviews online show the 7950 oc'ing no more than 1100 if not 1050'ish with or without voltage and you find a fair amount of people who own them getting them 1200+ with stock coolers, if I was confident I could get say a sapphire dual fan card to oc that high with 1800'ish memory I'd be all over it for the right price for then I'm sure it does and would beat any card stock and maybe even be close to the 1200+ mhz 680's I've seen released.

    What would really be cool is a review with latest drivers with several games of which a few favor nvidia and amd and a few which are as neutral as possible, with 7950,7970,870,680 all oc'd to max on air with good coolers like the sapphire etc and see where the chips really fall currently. I do note that the 7950 is not as far off the other cards when I look at all the charts but still no doubt at stock clocks anyway it trails the 670 usually as I said...however that boost clock nvidia employs throws off the apples to apples per mhz comparison and per mhz core and memory the amd's are faster just use more power than nvidia and a bit trickier to cool down. But regardless of who's camp you're in I think both sides have a decent crop of cards this go around and it isn't the lopsided mess it has been in the past with one side limping along needing price cuts to stay competitive while blown away in every other category.

    Right where I want to be
    Has anyone under clocked the GHz cards to see if there are any improvements power consumption?
