AMD Radeon HD 7970 Graphics Card Review

In the graphics card industry rarely does 6 months go by when there isn’t a significant new release from either AMD or NVIDIA but over the last 12 months we have seen little new from either manufacturer, especially in the high end. That all changes today though with AMD’s launch of the Radeon HD 7970, their "Graphics Core Next" architecture.

With up to date features, including DirectX 11.1 and PCIe 3.0 support, as well as a new manufacturing process and core design AMD hope the 7970 will be THE card to own for gamers in the next several months.

Today we take a detailed look at the Radeon HD 7970 in the latest games, including Star Wars: The Old Republic and Batman: Arkham City. Added to that is GPU computing performance as well as 1080p playback tests and power, thermal and noise testing.
