These results are quite impressive. I am really excited to see what these cards can do with proper drivers in place. The amount of power these use is great too. I am really excited for these cards.

WTH? GREAT OVERCLOCKS WITH STOCK VOLTAGE? WOW!!

The overclocking potential of the Radeon HD 7970 has been much vaunted in the recent leaks and it certainly didn't disappoint. Even without any software or hardware voltage mods, we managed to bring the CPU core from the default 925MHz up to the maximum 1125MHz that CCC would allow. We also turned memory up to 1500MHz and Power Control to +20% to prevent throttling.

Looks like AMD heard the community and designed the front end of the card to look like the Batmobile again.
