On another thread I heard people saying the average would be 1150. +/- 50 Mhz.
And then I found the same thing on this thread. But I did see that 1.3Ghz as well.

I've been actively participating in the thread since the 7970 hit the market on January 9th, and I can tell you that there are A LOT more then just 10 people, and whom you merely consider to be "lucky".
No sir, but you are simply mistaken,. And I can smell you're newly found bias towards the 680 from a mile away. The 7970 overclocks like crazy, and it is perhaps the greatest overclocking GPU on the market, currently.
If it were 10 in 1000 that could do that the odds of you getting not one but 2 are very, very low.
Golden, I thought you said you wouldn't consider crossfiring your one 7970 because of "awful" drivers? So when did you get a second one? Or were they two separate occasions?
