3DMark

We know how the HD 7970 stacks up against the competition but how does the XFX DD Black Edition Overclocked perform against the much easier to say Sapphire HD 7970? Well in our 3DMark benchmarks in both Vantage and 3DMark 11 the XFX card out performed its stock brother by a considerable amount. In the 3DMark Vantage Performance setting benchmark we actually saw better performance out of the one XFX card than our two GTX 580’s in SLI!

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.

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.
