Radeon HD 7970 GHz Matrix Platinum Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 7970 GHz Matrix Platinum Edition is a special edition of Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition.
The new features include a core-clock raise from 1000MHz to 1050MHz (and 1100MHz in Turbo Mode) while the operating memory clock was increased from 1500MHz to 1650MHz. A new cooling system called DirectCU II was installed which should keep Radeon HD 7970's temperatures low under extreme loading while producing less noise.
The performance boost is around 3% when compared to standard Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition despite its extreme memory overclock which does not boost its performance.

I would like too know for a 7970 how much bandwidth is too much. I oc my 7970's memory to 1575mhz and gpu-z says 302gb/s I figured that is plenty. I know it can go higher what I would like too know is how much is too much to the point were the 7970 couldn't use it. I tried google couldn't find much didn't look to hard though figured I might get a better answer here.

Im not a fan of either company (NVIDIA Or AMD) but this is one of the best single gpus I've seen. Really in some benchmarks it even goes ahead gtx 690 (I've seen some benchmarks in techpowerup).

That article is terrible. The 7970 outperforms the 680 in their own benchmarks then they rate the 7970 a 6 and a 680 a 9. What?

Look silviku92, you are weirdly defensive about your card. Sorry its simply not the best single card around, it is however a very very good card. I'm not sure why you feel the need to convince everyone that it is the best card in the world. Why can't you be happy that you have a a very powerful card?

Look at the article I posted. It is the most update with the newest drivers with 310.61 from Nvidia and the neswest bios and drivers from AMD. Those tests don't lie and show the 7970 iss ahead.

at 800euro(at her time) is the best single card …….and with latest driver i have super super playble fps in all games more then any 7970ghz i would do real test and i will show that i kick -ass without be defensive …..you are defensive because you know that 7970ghz is losing this is normal …nvidia it may have higher price but beats AMD ……amd i respect for price-performance……not the best…..nvidia gtx 680 and 690 are the top card on the planet right now at all games and all chapters so let's have some respect please for the world leader visual Nvidia :) look at all test's

You continue to say the same thing while ignoring actual tests. Its like dealing with a brick wall. What do you have to say about this article? Also why would I be defensive, I don't own either card. You are the one who keeps crying about your card not being the top.
