[TPU] MSI Radeon HD 7970 Lightning Overclocked to 1800 MHz Core, 7.70 GHz Memory - Page 8

post #71 of 101
I think they're going to be released first or 2nd week of April.

Hope the launching price is with the reduced 7970 price due to 680.

These may come out at a great time for us consumers as MSI may be forced to hold down the price a bit with Kepler launching...

Maybe golden lightenings will do 1400+ mhz on air. Good ones around 1350, but average ones will do around 1250mhz. Those are my predictions.

The silicon is the same dude, it's not like Lightning silicon fell off the back of God's truck. Golden 7970s do 1300 on water, only because water can keep temps down. Air cannot achieve the maximum low temps. This silicon is very sensitive to heat.

I wonder if these boutique non-reference designes will be able to compete with the 680 ..?

Yup, I think people think these are binned or something. The only real advantage of going with these type of cards is for extreme cooling/high voltage benching. You are paying for the better power delivery system, not the chance of the average air/water OC being better. They have almost the same exact chance of hitting 1100, 1200 or whatever the average OC is for air/water. If you can keep it cool at a higher voltage, these cards are worth it. For anything else, IMO, they are not. You may get a slightly better overall OC on average due to the higher quality power components delivering a more constant and stable voltage to everything, but people ought not expect it.

I think with a revision, this arch could hit 2Ghz under extreme cooling, this is a good step up and pretty insane in its own right though.

You are completely dismissing the aesthetics and, yes, epeen of such cards. I, for one, will never run dual reference cards in my rig. Period. Its the same reason I bought a RIVE when I have absolutely no intention of EVER using LN2 on my rig....
