Isn't Tahiti LE, isn't worth it.

Why not stick that cooler on a 7970, then you know, it might actually sell and make money?

Worth it?...Absolutely not this late in the life-cycle when Tahiti Le and 760 are things yet 7870 (or a follow up with the spec) has not been slashed in price (yet), but it's always nice to see clocks that reflect efficiency and are closer to what the chip was made to run. It exposes AMD's foundation nicely which I still think is somewhere between highly convenient and/or clever. I always preface by saying 1111.111mhz, but in a to-the-nearest-25mhz reality AMD skus live in:

1100/5000 1280sp
1100/6000 1536sp
1100/7000 1792sp

Would love to see power usage and performance at these clocks versus a stock 660 and 660ti...should be roughly similar to the former and later in each respect.

...

I see one was reviewed on launch day...16 months ago. :laugh:

It exposes AMD's foundation nicely which I still think is somewhere between highly convenient and/or clever...especially when over clocking 1280/5000 and 1792/7000 do and should hug the 150w and 225w pci-e specs so well. I always preface by saying ~1111.111mhz (based on 680, 7770 etc), but in a to-the-nearest-25mhz reality AMD skus live in:

1100/5000 1280sp
1100/6000 1536sp
1100/7000 1792sp

...or roughly 1111.1111/~.969 on avg (~1150mhz) to compensate for nvidia greater texture units at the same flop + special function...which will probably be less of a factor going forward given lots of things will be programmed towards amd's unit specs.

Would love to see power usage and performance at these clocks versus a stock 660 and 660ti...should be roughly similar to the former and later in each respect.

I see one at 1100mhz was reviewed around launch day...16 months ago...later one at 1150mhz. :laugh:

Yeah, this is a little late in the game to have any real worth, had it shown say last Sept that would've made it exciting.

Though it might have merit; figure perf/watt might end up slightly worse than the 660Ti, although not as hungry as the 760. I don’t see it besting the 760 all the time, but if priced like $220-230 it would stack nice in regards to perf/$.
