CES 2012: AMD shows new GPU

Advanced Micro Devices seems to have lived up to the company's name as it showed the new Radeon 7970 graphics card at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The story is too old to be commented.

Got Dam that thing is HUGE!

Single fastest GPU until GTX680/780 is released.

Nvidia or AMD, both have great cards.

NYC_Gamer2139d ago

i can't wait for the 680/780 vs 7970 videos

best to get it Sapphire or ASUS? who dose the best robust build?

Marcus Fenix2139d ago

imagine having this card in QuadFire setup, someone out there will do it 4 the sake of benchmarking atleast.

yea the nvidia cards may give u a bonus 4 fps (thats the average per game i found) for $100 more! atleast where I live. I may replace my 6970 with this puppy!

chaldo2139d ago

I don't think you need to replace that 6970 yet.. lol.

NewMonday2139d ago (Edited 2139d ago )

they say better drivers and nice overclocking flexiblty will give just that and more.

ATi_Elite2138d ago

Don't replace your HD6970......Just buy another one when the prices drop if you got room and a proper PSu!

HD6970 CF is BEASTLY!!

Still no match for my two GTX590's on water........

h311rais3r2139d ago (Edited 2139d ago )

the point is u have 2 and this will max anything...at 1/4 the price u paid....

at train

its the midrange card. the midranges never beat the top of last gen.

RGTrain2139d ago (Edited 2139d ago )

This is true, but it still will not beat one 590. Plus the price of the 7970 is only one hundred dollars cheaper then the 590. I thought with next gen tech this should beat a 590/6990. We'll see what big green has in store.

@RGTrain

7970=fastest single based gpu right now

590/6990= dual based gpu's.

TheGameFoxJTV2139d ago (Edited 2139d ago )

So, this card in terms of power, will it max pretty much everything out right now?

And how much will it be?
