So it’s today, when AMD has officially released their updated version of Radeon HD 7970. Card is priced at $499, which is the old price of few months old original HD 7970. Is it worth spending the same amount of money as for GeForce GTX 680?
Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition brings new features. AMD has copied the idea of Boost Clock from NVIDIA. Benchmarks show that the new version of Tahiti XT brings at least 10% better performance than it’s older brother. Unfortunately, as it turned out, refreshed version of HD 7970 does not offer similar power consumption. Some reviewers even say, it’s better to chose ASUS DirectCUII models (which offer lower TDP and the same performance).
