Radeon HD 7970 GHz Vapor-X 6GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 7970 GHz Vapor-X 6GB Edition is a special edition of Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition.
It comes with 2 modes: a default core-clock of 1000MHz that goes up to 1050MHz in Turbo or a default core-clock of 1050MHz that goes up to 1100MHz. It also features a new cooling system with 2 huge fans. The memory clock will also be raised to 1600MHz, if using the highest option (lethal Turbo mode).
Using the most significant Turbo Mode, the performance is around 3% superior than standard Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition and the 6GB frame buffer is useless.

shaji221.. no-one in here is believing, that you have this rig.. it's not normal, that you always buy the best stuff that comes on the market.. always a better thing is released, you buy it.. lol ? and if you have it.. your daddy must be a rich-ass oil businessman, or the president of america. but i still wont believe that you have this rig.. i think you're just using an old pentium III 1,0ghz which barely opens GD Website… and 32mb ram etc.etc.
