GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7970 GV-R797OC-3GD 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5
  • Core Clock 1000 MHz
  • 1 x DVI 1 x HDMI 2 x Mini DisplayPort
  • 2048 Stream Processors
  • PCI Express 3.0 x16


great overclocker. was able to reach 1200 core and 1600 memory (thats the max limit in MSI Afterburn, if you dont tweak ini files) with 1200/1600 clocks, stays under 65C in max load (crysis 2, metro, 3dmark 11, 3dmark vantage)
I was able to get ~ P10400 points in 3dmark 11 which equals overclocked GTX680. i am very pleased with performance, i came from 560TI SLI.


there are only a few glitches on drivers level. I hope they get fixed in later catalyst releases. Also, I dont udnerstand why gigabyte used that blue colored board for this card... I had to pick this brand because it has the best cooling solution but had to gave up on board color (in my case, i have red and black theme)

Other Thoughts:

i7 3770k @ 4.4 ghz (zalman cnps 9900-R Max cooler)
Asrock Z77 professional
Gigabyte 7970 OC (1200/1600)
mushkin 2133mhz redline 8gb ram
mushkin 128 gb chronos ssd
Cougar 1000W
NZXT Switch 810
