Asus Matrix HD 7970 Platinum Reviewed

Recommended Posts

Nice review Mike!

 

I'd still go with an XFX DD card from Newegg for $100 less if I was buying today though.

 

But daaaaaaaaaaayuummm...1.3 GHz core clock. :D

All my HD 7970's could hit 1300MHz Core Clock at 1.3V's. My latest one, though, 1270MHz Core Clock at 1.2V's... so not that impressed on that front. Still, I love the look of the Matrix cards and the quietness of their fans.

Well it's known you run the majority of your hardware on magic so... :P

You must pick up the best cards on the east coast as none of the 10+ I have looked at will pass my benchmark suite anywhere close to that clock speed. Sure I can pass most of the tests but none make it all the way through. 1300Mhz is a pretty stout number to be sure.

Bah! Well, I get lucky in the GPU department, but not the CPU department. Still can't get my two that are in Xfire at 1300MHz when they can get there on their own.

I really wasn't exaggerating the part after I first got it out and was gazing at it in my hands. My jaw was open for a good 30 seconds while I was checking everything out...LOL
