Is this normal?

What's your CPU usage when you're benching? Maybe your CPU is holding your GPU back

Tmeps at 79 c and CPu usage between 10 - 25 % threw the whole bench

It seems the results are correct, I was searching around for anyone who benched a 7970 at the exact same presets (maxed everything), and had a hard time finding one with a single 7970... but found GTX 680 results (at Ultra quality vs High on yours)

and these are only slightly slower than yours.

Let's see if anyone with a 7970 can chime in and bench Heaven at the same settings

edit: You might also want to look for benchmark results with a single 7970 and match their settings to see if you get the same results.

I don't think that is right. On my single 7950 (OC'd to 1200/1575) my score was 1800 with i5 3570k @ 4.2Ghz. I believe it scales perfectly because in crossfire I score 3600 at the same overclock so I would have to have clocks at around 550/700 to get a score like that. Is my logic right? and I bench on the extreme preset. I feel like its a CPU bottleneck. This is just a guess though. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
