Yes, it does.

I just picked up one from a high street shop (reserved via their website, and it's a UK place so I won't link you to it) and despite it being the 950mhz edition, the sticker on the box states that it's the 900mhz edition... You need to search for it using the product code: (11196-10-40G), which is what the assistant had to do to confirm it before I paid for it and opened the box to check the pcb colour and 6+8pin specs.

In all honesty though, I'm not sure that this card will guarantee super high overclocks. I can get it to a good stable 1150/1400 (which is ample), but get artifacting and crashes if I go much higher regardless of voltage. YMMV smile.gif

Iffy at best. It will work great for some, but terribad for others. Basically nothing's changed lol. There's some tricks to getting it running great though.

tsm106 great run, how about 3dmark score?
Could you tell me what are asic numbers on your cards? I would love to WC my sapphire ref card and OC it but I'm kinda skeptical though. Not sure would full cover block help me pass 1300 on core. Mine is 81.4% I never seriously tried OC ing it. got around 1100/1500 just to keep it cool since I'm too annoyed by the fan. redface.gif

Hi...This is mine!!!!. I´m very happy with it...it´s an overclock beast...



Model: HIS 7970 ICE Q2 Ghz Edition

Caution!!! 2560x1600
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

3dmarkocbest.png

3dmarkocbest.th.png


My Asic quality is 61.5%...I think less Asic Quality >>> Better OC by air.

Mine is totally stable 1170 / 1600 @ 1.193V for relajate 24/7 use

I can pass 1300 Core and 1700Mem with very good temps... I really love this card!!!; has some "coil whine" but is aceptable and I´ll expect with time the "buzz" dissapear... I only have this card mounted in my system for three use days...

Regards.

My aisc numbers are all 71-76%. I had to go thru a few cards, dumped the 77% plus cards, do not want, and the low ones 60% ish do not want those either.

I don't like running 3dmark cuz it's heavily cpu and memory based. It's not a realistic bench of the cards imo, so I don't bother spending much time on it. Anyways, I run about upper 26K.


Thing about max overclocking silicon is it is heavily dependent on temps. There's like 1 maybe 2 cards that have monstro coolers on them that can keep temps low enough to get close or hit 1300, but for the 99% of the rest, water is a much better way. That said, you'll never know if it can hit 1300 until you try. I run some test on my cards on air to get a feel for their capability. However unfortunately it really comes down to actually putting the block on it and maxing voltage and going for the gold to find out. Running tests on air can't tell you how it will do at max overclocking.
