We are still missing one card for quadfire (Kim Jong-un aides probably hijacked the package for his Christmas present), but till then, here are some 3-way Crossfire results…
When AMD pushed the introduction of the Radeon HD 7970 from January 9, 2012 to December 22, 2011, the only that actually launched were the reviews by selected press. Now, AMD is making sure the same thing does not happen with 7950.
As the Ivy Bridge processors from Intel comes out four months from now, its graphics, with reportedly double the Sandy Bridge GPU performance, would have an impact on entry level discrete GPUs. Will Haswell continue with the same major performance jump, or just some moderate improvements?
One week ago, Santa Claus brought us the red themed AMD Radeon HD 7970, which practically smoked previous generation cards and showed great overclocking headroom. For our first feature in 2012, we sacrificed our holiday weekend to bring you an exclusive look at some benchmark results achieved with a slight voltage bump and core clocks raised
We tend to be skeptical about AMD or NVIDIA claiming stellar overclocking capabilities of their upcoming GPUs, but this time, it seems AMD wasn't playing the same old PR games. Sapphire is readying a non-reference design HD 7970 graphics card that boasts of 1335 MHz GPU clock speed. Out of the box!
While Southern Islands is only just beginning to roll out, a recently ex-AMD ASIC designer's Linkedin profile reveals the possible codename for AMD's next-gen GPU family - Sea Islands.
A forum poster at Chiphell has released benchmarks for a system featuring two anticipated next-gen products – AMD's Radeon HD 7770 and Intel's Ivy Bridge Core i5 3550K. The HD 7770 featured is the reference design – identical to the previous pictures leaked. While the i5 3550K is as much part of the system, the
What happens when you slap two mid-range Barts XT (Radeon 6870) GPUs on a single board? Not too shabby at all…
If the Radeon HD 7970 just didn’t cut it for you, it seems like you won’t have to wait long for AMD’s dual GPU card which should be known as the Radeon HD 7990, as it’s expected to arrive in Q1. So far not much is known about the specs, apart from the fact that
If you're looking to add some more connectivity options to your USB 3.0 equipped notebook, then Targus might have what you've been looking for in the same of its USB 3.0 dual video docking station.

Update 23/12: We updated our original article from yesterday with more background information and included LuxMark (OpenCL) for completeness. Doesn't change the conclusions though… For months now, certain smaller motherboard manufacturers have been hyping up PCI Express 3.0 compatibility and benefits to ignorant users, even going to the point of bashing one another with libelous
In the final part of our review, we look into the overclocking abilities of the 28nm 'Tahiti XT' GPU, run extensive but relevant performance tests, and give an objective conclusion of the AMD Radeon HD 7970.
The AMD Radeon HD 'Tahiti XT' 7970 features a redesigned PCB, 3GB of GDDR5 384bit memory ring bus configuration and an optimized heatsink design.
After a year of less than stellar CPU launches (Bulldozer) and the fallout from the massive company-wide layoffs and manufacturing delays, AMD and their fans finally have something to cheer about this holiday season. Built on the radical 28nm 'Graphics Core Next' architecture and numerous another innovations, the US$549 Radeon HD 7970 flexes it considerable
One thing is clear, we're not far from the official unveiling of AMD's next generation of graphics cards, as more and more details are appearing on a wide range of websites and we've now gotten the first indication on performance, in normalized figures courtesy of AMD. There are no actual numbers and we'd take this
It appears that the much rumoured Radeon HD 6930 is the real deal, as at least one manufacturer has announced a card based on the budget high-end GPU from AMD. HIS has announced its version of the Radeon HD 6930 called the 6930 IceQ X and it appears to be identical to HIS' 6950 card
A forum member at Rage3D has leaked the first pictures of AMD's performance GPU – Cape Verde XT – to be branded Radeon HD 7770.
AMD is planning to rebrand their low-end Radeon HD 7000 products, for OEMs only. Every AMD product from Radeon HD 7600 down will essentially be using GPUs from Northern Islands and even Evergreen families. As expected, a large factor behind this significant restructuring is the rise of APUs.
