[CH]7970 Overclocked Sapphire Models - upcoming 6gb model! - Page 6

post #51 of 142
6Gb is only useful for Eyefinity configurations. Anyone not using Eyefinity and buying into the Vram 'futureproofing' on a single or dual monitor configuration is utterly throwing their money away.

Why didn't they just up the core clock on the Atomics to 1337? -____-

Unfortunately mainstream monitors don't support Display Port connections yet, the Eyefinity setups do because that's what AMD demands, however if you are like me who uses HDMI or DVI because those types of monitors are more readily available and more affordable (hell I picked up a 1080p 25 inch screen for 200 bucks last week), display port seems pointless for a non enthusiast gamer.

What? tons of monitors support displayport. If you're using a cheap 100$ TN monitor it might not, but newer panels using the latest technology do (IPS, PLS, etc)

Every IPS / PLS monitor on the planet, in the past 2 years supports displayport. Displayport is the new VESA standard -- Newer monitors have DP connections, most legacy ones don't. That will change over time. But pretty much every IPS / PLS panel will have DP connections, because it supports features that HDMI and DVI don't.

Its also better than DVD and HDMI - Most hardware HDMI and HDMI cables do not support > 1080p (my MSI Lightning 580 doesn't support greater than 1080p with HDMI) so if you want greater than 1080p you're doing DVI-D or DP. Displayport is better than DVI because it supports more colors, has better color accuracy, (which is why professionals use it), and features such as wireless display and multiple displays on 1 cable.

Also: you don't *need* DP to do eyefinity. Getting an adapter for DP > DVI is easy enough if you want, and costs like 10 $.

That shader number looks to be 2304 which would mean 36CU chip... in other words, just like the GTX 480 the 7970 may be a flagship card with part of the die disabled. Here look at this source as they pick up on the same thing.
From OP:
700
This and the conservative clocks means that it is very likely AMD will refresh sometime soon (a la GTX500 series) to battle Nvidia's Kepler.

If the 7970 really is a 36 CU part, I wonder if it would be possible to unlock the disabled CU... thinking.gif

A GTX 580 price drop would be awesome, i'd probably get a tri sli rig going while waiting for a MSI lightning 7970. I kinda doubt nvidia will drop prices, but here's hoping thumb.gif

On a serious note: some high clocks there. Atomic series looks cool, as well.
