Would expect 7970 to become much much better with better drivers later on then...
My guess is that AMD wants to reserve they top 28nm chip for their HD 89x0 series.

You'll have to play it by ear (adjust the voltage in increments).
I reached a max clock speed of 1070 MHz.

How's this for interesting? I ran Unigine this morning and got absolutely dismal scores compared to xfire and other tri-fire reviews I've seen. As a starting point for troubleshooting I decided to bring all clocks to stock levels on GPU's, this made a HUGE difference:

1125/1500 Results:

338

925/1375 Results:

338

Any ideas?

I removed my 7970 crossfire to individual find the cards stable overclocks. I started with my low quality card (73%) hooked up to my FW900 running 2304x1440@80Hz. Strangely enough, when in crossfire this lower quality card had much better temps than the other card which is 83%. This 73% card on air I got up to 1350Mhz without locking up but it was artifacting real bad. After many tries of running Heaven 2.5 and Crysis 2 I settled on 1280Mhz/1790Mhz @ 1.3v/1.7v. I let it loop Heaven 2.5 for an hour then I played a couple hours of Crysis 2 at Ultra with DX11 and Ultra texture high-res pack which is very stressful. I've seen Crysis 2 maxed out be very hard on GPU overclocks.

The card didn't skip a beat at these speeds! Not even an artifact. 1280/1790 seems pretty good for air cooling I think and the temp didn't go over 62C @ 100% fan. I think my 83% card is going to have a hard time beating these numbers.

I'm also glad I went with 7970 thumb.gif

It was pain to play battlefield 3 with my 5870. Non native resolution was pretty much the only thing viable.

Having 16:10 screens probably made it much worse, as it had to render 10% more pixels(?)

I was so waiting for the 7xxx series to come out, waiting more for 7950 would have made me squirm. And also considering that I have to use watercooling, buying a full size waterblock for one 7950 would not be as exciting as a 7970 smile.gif

I might even buy another 7970, probably when the price goes down and I build my new rig.
