    As for now, the VORTEX cards are far from being "Ultra High-end"...

    Amazing! powercolor delivered badass cards powered by AMD's Radeon 7970 and 7870 with 1.1Ghz & 1.15Ghz core speed respectively, but how about overclocking ability compared with MSI's Lightning ?

    Ultra high-end and these cards in my eyes, don't go hand in hand. However, it's probably their words not btarunr's.

    Lightning GPUs don't seem to be binned, or if they are then it's for LN2 and not air.

    Sapphire seems to have the fastest 7970 so far, with Toxic. But it doesn't really matter since none of the AIBs bin the GPUs, so the only difference is cooling. Arguably Sapphire has that one covered too.

    These are technically high end because of the chip they use... Only drawback is they use trislot design like some of Palit Sonic and Asus MARS designs
