Mark a very good job on the review.I have a little concern about the power draw charts,u said the 7970 is not overvolted are u sure?The difference is huge.
It is from the first review where it is overclocked to the absolute max but without a voltage increase.
Remember from my first review, where only a small overvolt made any difference to stability. After a point, the voltage would go up, but not the performance
Here is the HD 7970 now correctly pictured as overclocked but not overvolted
i expect the voltage to drop significantly with the respin, but then the overclock will again take it sky high if they try to match Kepler's overclocked and overvolted cards.
EDIT ... now that i am looking at them, i have the wrong one (formerly; now fixed) pictured
Off to fix it
FIXED and this post edited to show the correct image. 463W vs 276w
