first review
http://nl.hardware.info/reviews/2472/am ... 970-review

i think i called it pretty close, performance-wise

But then this is only 19x12

Ignore the f**king assholes over at anandtech. You nailed it spot on. It's anywhere from 0-20% faster than the gtx580 at 1920x1200 resolution. This card will be short lived.

i am probably talking to AMD PR over there. Besides the viral monkeys
- no wonder i can't get an answer from AMD Graphics

i think i will stop posting there. It is pit of viral shills and fanboys where you really have to go through a gauntlet of garbage to pick out the gems. If you guys will keep me informed of what goes on over there - i won't go back. Let's make ABT forum that Anandtech should have been - could have been. i know how; i learned from them as a video mod.

Yes, Dead on from reading the chart of the first review. i have great insider contacts. And i did prove something tonight over there. i no longer have to worry about my credibility.

Now AMD has a choice - they can have me review their video cards under NDA, or i will bust every launch that they do in the future. Either way works out very well for us. However, i would much rather be a partner with AMD Graphics, if i had my choice. i have never leaked anything from any vendor when i was under NDA.
:)


And HD 7990 is inconsistent and expensive. But still definitely the fastest GPU overall. Hats off to AMD for this one. Good strategy .. that may backfire.
(i like to point out both sides - good and bad)
:hello:

$550 seems right. $679 is high as it is not close to 6990

Tessellation performance is through the roof. Destroys the gtx580. But in every game they have benchmarked:

bf3 < 20% faster than gtx580
batman AC < 10% faster
crysis 2 < 10% faster
AvP < 20% faster
sf4 - slower than gtx580

Wow. Pretty crappy for their new flagship card.

Wow .. this one is worse than we thought. BF3 is the gem in AMD's 7970 benchmark list. An overclocked GTX 580 makes up a lot of ground on the stock HD 7970. Overclocked the 7970 starts to shine

So a respin will probably be here in 5 months.

You think AMD will forgive me by then (if i stop posting at ATF)?
:D

HD 7980 sounds good to me

Oh and i just have to say this about the moron who writes for Semi-Accurate:
(in response to this)
http://semiaccurate.com/forums/showthre ... 5&page=231

CharLIE is really stupid as his contacts at AMD can feed him BS PR crap he swallows himself.
-- Looks like i was right about the launch and he was dead wrong. He is 100% IN-accurate about Nvidia and finally he is SEMI-accurate about AMD's launch.

Decorum, i know
:)

And i cannot believe this was in KyleB's conclusion
Quote:
While we have just shown you that it completely blows away a Radeon HD 6970, the question is, is it fast enough compared to the GeForce GTX 580? Technically, the Radeon HD 7970 is an upgrade


Of course he goes on to qualify it as an upgrade .. but "technically, it is an upgrade"
WtF .. the end of the world is near
:tease:

His chart kinda sums it up for me

They did use factory OC-ed gtx 580.

Honestly I am not seeing the price as that much of problem,
but the performance gains against the 2 year old arch. built on a 3 year old nod is very inadequate.

I did read the real numbers and Charlie again has no credibility and lost in translation.

(ROFLMAO)

Yes, "please note this one"
- not a single factual error
:hello:

Does he really believe the BS AMD PR tells him?
.. decorum ..

The AMD fanboys have awful reading comprehension - perhaps AI lacks understanding

i NEVER said the HD 7970 was going to be hot running - in fact the leaked slides i posted showed it to be cool and highly overclockable. i actually said it was going to be like the GTX 480 - short-lived.

It *is* going to be short-lived. Like x1800xt > x1900xt.

There is no way around it - HD 7970 is an under-performer as to expectations for 28nm. +25% over the GTX 580 is nothing to crow about for a full node shrink. The features are nice, the OC and GPU compute is good; the performance lacks. i'd also like to test it against the HD 6970 in DX9 games.

:think:

Short-lived or not. Still awesome card. Give me yours when you get it. After the review.

I command it.

Appopin vs the Internets (and Charlie). WTF is going on around here?

BTW, according to the Guru Charlie. Who's right about everything! I mean he was right about Bulldozer and the 6970, wasn't he? Wasn't he? WASN'T HE!?

You got the hook-up from Nvidia. Get me some info on Kepler.

That'd be my christmas present! Peace bro-ski!

What do you want to know about Kepler?

We know they are Big and Hot
