titleFor our write-up today I just want to follow up with our past reviews on the Sapphire HD 7970 and the XFX R7970 DD Black Edition Overclocked. Today we are going to show off the results of our crossfire benchmarks. This isn’t a review, just our results. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. For those of you in the Midwest like me try to stay warm and safe with all of the snow coming in!

We paired those two monsters up to see what the HD 7970 is capable in crossfire and here are our results!

As you can see other than in the Nvidia favored Metro 2033 the two HD 7970’s paired up are unstoppable. If you are looking for the absolute maximum performance right now this is the only way to go. Of course at $1100 bucks it’s not going to be cheap!

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legends, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers.

It's the drivers. Some games are getting double the frame rate. Look at BC2.

AMD really needs to step up their Crossfire support. Two of these cards are not El Cheapo.

they havnt updated the driver since the refernce cards went out they rebranded the evaluation version driver ( no changes have been made yet to increase performance) so sad, A lot of folks purchased 2 cards and are pissed

I would be pissed too if I spent that much cash on two or more cards and the performance wasn't where it should be, no argument there.
