Both of your cards are nice but without some benchmark comparisons of both cards over clocked it hard to say which card is the best.

I have a HD7950 that beats many HD7970 in performance because it over clocks so well. With good over clocking HD7950 you get alot of card for the money. IMO the HD7950 is a better value and in some cases a better performer than many HD7970s.

All about the over clock.
you are absolutely right my right, but my 7970's crossfire don't forget that i just got today, already managed to get to 1225 on core clock and 1600 mem clock and this is just the beginning my friend, what are your clocks?
u cant say icex2 7950 will OC better then 7970 icex2 GHZ edition, there is no way, if so more power to it, i will do some more bench tomorrow and ill post my 3d mark heaven fps in games etc....
im still doing lots of testing but so far what i got is stable all the way SO FAR lets keep my fingers crossed.
im new to the whole voltage control and the memory voltage control as well but ill get this guys up high, and i herd in crossfire the 70's OC better together the the 50's i got some really lucky cards nice lottery for me

I am going to do Antec 620 mod anway but idk if all 7950 icex x2 OC same. Later wil probably go on crossfire just need to get bench case.
Edit: @Vertoxic compare 7950 iceq x2 to 7970 Ghz as is similar price (7950 is still 35€ cheaper) not 7970 iceq x2

That's nice...but you're not guaranteed to get a nice overclocker when buying a GPU. The only thing that can really be counted on when buying a GPU is their stock speeds. Anything above that is just gravy.

As for the value for the money I'd agree with you about the 7950.

The upcoming AMD Sea Islands is for their mobile products, the 7000 series will be their focus for a while concerning desktops.

How much better would your life be now for gaming instead of waiting a year? I'd say go for it.

7950 and 7970 if ran at egual clocks, there is like 5% difference in peformance... Clock 7950 about 50 core more and its on par, how do i know this? Well i had 7970 and i bought DCII 7950 which overclocks to 1280/1600 (7970 was good overclocker also 1250/1600). When both were clocked to 1250/1600 there was 2 fps difference in Unigine benchmarks. Hope this will give some indication how 7950 performs. Bought the 7950 because i will go for CFX.

the HIS HD 7950 iceq x2 boost is one of the best HD 7950 cards. built on a reference HD 7970 PCB. has more power phases than ref HD 7950. lower temps and better stability for extreme overclocks. unlocked voltage. at the same clocks HD 7950 is 5% slower than HD 7970. in terms of value for money HD 7950 is unbeatable.

Any idea why GFX on Techpowerup site have 6+8 power phases and on official site it have just 6+8 power phases ?
Is there any difference betwen HIS Radeon HD 7970 IceQ X2 and HIS Radeon HD 7970 IceQ X2 Ghz Edition ?

HIS HD 7970 Iceq X2 runs at 925 mhz and has 8 + 6 pin power.

http://www.hisdigital.com/un/product2-691.shtml
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161412

HIS HD 7970 Iceq X2 Ghz uses the Ghz edition chip with 1050 mhz boost clock. 8 + 8 pin power. this card also has more power phases than reference HD 7970. 6+1+1 power phases on HIS HD 7970 Iceq x2 Ghz compared to 5+1+1 on ref HD 7970 . The extra PWM phase for core voltage provides extra power stability, lower temperature for power components.

http://www.hisdigital.com/un/product2-726.shtml
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161431

so the Ghz version has 125 mhz faster clocks and better power delivery . thumb.gif
