3GB. They don't share memory.

If you plan to go Eyefinity 5 with 5 monitors @2560x1600 = 20,480,000 pixels, yes, the 6GB is the way to go. Get 4 of them but the VRAM is not cumulative to 24GB but 6GB/GPU.

7970 loves water, /w EK block reaches about 42*C Load 1150/1575 stock v. On air it would artifact.
post #1136 of 38701
First Card - 35f0
Second Card - 2f20

So I assume the first card is better than the second?

Some are getting 1150Mhz Core and 1575Mhz on air with no artifacts. Let us know your bench results when you add some voltage and push it further bud. Maybe run a 3DMark 11 Perfomance and post the results. Trying to figure if the cards like voltage allowing for further OC.
