Videocard and Box Accessories:

- Supports 4K resolution displays (4096 x 2160 through Fast HDMI) or 4096 x 2160 (DisplayPort). The card ships with a Fast HDMI cable, which means it is ready for 4K displays out of the box.
- 1x miniDisplay Port to Display-Port adapter (if you need to connect it to a Display Port LCD/LED screen)
- 1x HDMI-to-DVI Adapter
- 1x Active MiniDisplay Port to DVI adapter ($30 value) -- this is required to drive 3 screens (1920x1080P) in Eyefinity out of the box. Almost none of the other HD7970s ship with an Active DP adapter.
- 1x DVI-to-VGA Adapter
- 1x Crossfire connector
- 1x 8-pin and 1x 6-pin power adapter - so this card will work even with older power supplies still using 2x6-pin PCI Express Connectors
- Videocard supports DX11.1, which introduces Target Independent Rasterization (TIR). This is supposed to accelerate 2D graphics desktop speed in Windows 8 (Google "Microsoft details Windows 8's improved graphics performance"
- The card takes up 2.5 slots as the cooling shroud slightly protrudes beyond 2 slots
- Length: 270mm for the PCB, ~286mm with the plastic fan shroud (11.26")

Performance and temperatures:
- The card comes factory clocked at 950mhz BIOS 1 and 1000mhz BIOS 2, with memory at 5700/5800MHz, respectively.
- My card had an ASIC of 71%, with a stock voltage of 1.174V
- Overclocks on stock voltage to 1150mhz, VRM temperatures in HWInfo64 never exceed 100*C at these settings
- At 1150mhz @ 1.174V, the GPU temperature hovers between 71-76*C with fan speeds varying from 51-63%, respectively. At these levels it is still very quiet for a high-end GPU.

Bought two of these for crossfire and my 3x1080p monitor setup and was very excited to get them and I got them quite fast, 2 days. Now, this is supposed to be a 2 slot card, but it's not, it takes up 3 slots easily, so it's blatantly misleading for those hoping to crossfire on any size board with any other cards in pci slots.

I inserted them into my Sabertooth X-79 2011 board and they blocked every slot. No sound card, revo SSD, nothing can fit, not even a network card. Make sure you are aware of this or buy an extended board before you purchase more than 1.

This isn't exactly a con because it was something I thought might be an issue, but with no actual dimensions for the depth of the card, it was impossible to know without actually buying them because very few have crossfired 7970's, let alone these exact model. This is something that should have been clearly stated somewhere and it will cost me a couple weeks of returning the other parts that now wont fit and I now have to repurpose from other sources/models.

Overall the cards are amazing, crossfire is a little buggy but I'm not too worried. 5760x1080 Battlefield 3 @ 55 fps? Easily. Great cards. Just needed more info on the product page.

AMD knows how to make GPUs. They make great cards, and every now and then, nail it and make an absolute perfect card. They succeeded with the 5850 and it's brother 5870 and they succeeded again with the 7970. The 5850 had MASSIVE OC headroom with a starting stock core clock at 725 and people easily reached core clocks of 900 and above the 1 ghz mark. With the 7970, the OC headroom may not be as large, but is still there. A starting core clock of 925 and an easy OC up to 1125/1575 is just a lower oc.

I had a 7970 reference card by Sapphire, and I loved it. It did run extremely hot, at around 85 degrees C at 1175/1575. I had to set the fan at around 65% at that temperature and the sound and heat was just too annoying for gaming for more than 10 minutes. I considered buying an aftermarket cooler for around $80 which was reviewed to be excellent, although a tad on the larger side, and extremely tedious to install. I own an Antec 900 case, so combination of putting in another $80 with $579 original 7970 price, amount of work required and the smaller case size put me off buying the cooler. I returned my reference card and switched to this one.

The Sapphire Dual-X card is absolutely amazing. Although the GTX 680 is reviewed to be slightly better than the 7970 in a few categories, it is important to remember that the 7970 has a larger advantage in higher resolutions. This isn't to say that the 7970 is bad at 1920 x 1080. The performance of this card is ridiculous even when overclocked to around 1125/1575, which is the max in CCC, and can reach that clock at stock voltage. However, if you would wish to OC it higher, using other programs such as MSI afterburner and Trixx easily suffice.

Another amazing feature this card offers is its Dual Bios.

Originally, I bought the MSI 7970 Lightning because of the legendary performance that usually comes with the Lightning product line. Unfortunately, I was only able to overclock the card to 1170 on the core and 1500 on the VRAM. This was in line with the experience that reviewers related, but it was a bit disappointing. In addition, the Lightning that I had would occasionally lock up, even when it wasn't overclocked. For six Benjamins, I wasn't going to put up with that, so I sent it back.

After scouring the reviews, I decided that I would get a GTX 680, even though I was uncomfortable with the 2 GB of VRAM (I game at 2560x1600). The reason I was a little doubtful was that when I tracked VRAM usage in Skyrim with all my HD mods, I frequently utilized all of the 3 GB of VRAM on the 7970. Despite these misgivings, I settled down to wait for a GTX 680 to pop up.

THEN I had a chance to get a Sapphire Dual-X 7970 OC for four hundred thirty dollars. I had read good reviews on the Sapphire 7970, and was impressed with the overclocks that reviewers were able to get on them. I decided to take a chance on the Sapphire over the GTX 680, since it was nearly a hundred less than what I could get a 680 for.

So far, I'm very glad I took the plunge. The OC I'm getting on the card I got is amazing! I can play Skyrim at 1270 on the core and 1700 on the VRAM (at 1.2 volts) with no problems. And I haven't even pushed it to the max yet to see how high I can go! At these speeds, I think I'm getting better performance than an overclocked GTX 680 would provide. To top it off, the Sapphire cooler is both quieter AND cooler than the MSI Lightning cooler. Max temps with my MSI were about 70 C in game, but I haven't ever hit above 65 C with my Sapphire yet.
