Outstanding card, absolutely amazing picture quality and reliability.

Carl,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Far quieter and more powerful than the EAH4870X2 it's replacing. Uses far less electricity. Its like I have all new games, they've been improved that much. Free games- Bioshock Infinite rocks, AMD Reloaded deal is great. I've noticed that great of a difference that I ran Fraps to upload a video to show everyone Skyrim!
Bad points:
Has made me wonder if an HDMI 1.4a cable will drive a 1920x1200 display on a modern monitor.

Manufacturer's Description

SAPPHIRE HD 7970 3GB Vapor-X Edition has the latest GDDR5 memory clocked at 6000MHz effective, and runs with a core clock speed of 1000 MHz which with PowerTune Dynamic Boost rises to 1050 MHz on the engine. It has a slightly less sophisticated 8-phase power design and the versatile output configuration of Dual-link DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort.

The Vapor-X cooler is based on a new vapor chamber designed especially for this series. Heat is carried away by four heatpipes (2 × 8mm plus 2 × 6mm), and finally dispersed by two 90mm fan with aerofoil blades and dust repelling bearings. The Vapor-X cooler easily handles the heat generated from the HD 7970 GHz Editions even under extreme load conditions.
