Introduction



I would like to thank OCUK and Caseking for proving the review sample.

AMD's Radeon HD 7970 has been on the market for a while now. The card introduced a new shader architecture and brought numerous improvements in power consumption. It later met heavy opposition from NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 680 and 670, which has caused HD 7970 pricing to go down quite a bit.



VTX3D's HD 7970 X-Edition is a highly overclocked HD 7970 using a custom dual fan cooler and a large clock increase to 1050 MHz GPU and 1425 MHz memory.
