    Default AMD HD7970 @ TPU

    The wait is finally over, next-gen Radeon HD7970 just got released.

    What can I say... overclock capabilities are very good, power consumption is decent, and the performance... it could be better, but I'm sure it'll improve when drivers get polished. Still, 10% more (@Full HD) than GTX580 is something.
    It's a bit noisy, but non-reference design cards probably won't have that issue.

    Overall, it seems like a decent product. I had a bit higher hopes, but given that drivers aren't perfect yet, it's quite good.

    Anand's review shows major improvements in GPGPU performance.

    This card is basically Fermi done right. WLIV had impressive peak numbers, but variable real world performance, GCN is solid all around.
