titleNow that we have had a chance to take a look at a reference design HD 7970 and see how dominating one can be I am excited to take a look at XFX’s new Black Edition Overclocked R7970. Unlike most of the other manufactures their version is both overclocked and equipped with their Double Dissipation cooling solution, a heatsink that has to be one of the sexiest coolers on the market. We know how the stock card performs, but how will it perform with a 1000Mhz clock speed and a badass cooler? Let’s find out!

Seeing this card in person makes a world of difference. It is one sexy card.

Still pissed that AMD doesn't offer a backplate on their 7900 series of cards though. That is the side that most gamer's look at. Being in a normal case.

I would like to see some Crossfire numbers, I know that AMD has been lacking in their drivers for two cards for some time now. They have said that it's going to get better but when? People are buying 2 7970's are having scaling issues. I hope AMD gets it figured out and fast. Nvidia needs some good competition and the 7970 is that card.

For instance 1 7970, 1920x1080 Dirt 3 60fps, 2 cards 112fps. 1 card at 2650x1600, 37fps, 2 cards 40fps. Heard that over at PCper. Weird issue. Cards "can" scale really well in some instances! But in others they fall flat on their face.

I actually had crossfire benchmarks done before i left for CES but I'm going to retest with a more up to date driver. We didn't have scaling issues but once I was finished with the last benchmark the entire rig shutdown. After talking with AMD they think it was a driver issue.
