Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 OC WindForce review
Written by Danrok   
Friday, 24 February 2012 17:37

From Guru of 3D:

AMD recently launched their 28nm GPUs, the result is obviously the 7000 series product. All the way on top is the 7900 series, armed with a GPU codenamed Tahiti, the release of which was received quite positively on the market.

Today in the spotlight we have Gigabyte, they are releasing customized 7900 models. Specifically today we will test the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 OC (WindForce) edition. It's a fully fledged R7970 on a customized PCB, it comes factory overclocked for you and next to that they applied their popular WindForce cooler, the one that has a cool number of three active fans. The results are pretty impressive as you'll find out, that factory overclock boils down to a default clock frequency of 1000 MHz on the GPU core. Next to that the WindForce cooler is able to keep the product under 65 Degrees C, and that's under full load and stress.
