One week ago, Santa Claus brought us the red themed AMD Radeon HD 7970, which practically smoked previous generation cards and showed great overclocking headroom. For our first feature in 2012, we sacrificed our holiday weekend to bring you an exclusive look at some benchmark results achieved with a slight voltage bump and core clocks raised to nearly 1.26GHz. Stay tuned also for our record breaking 4-way Crossfire tests which should be done this upcoming week!
Update: "Lousy" Furmark Results (settings: http://imgur.com/WAuyP) spotted by sharp eyed viewers - even on the other benchies and BF3 (which walls the CPU to 99%), didn't see the temps go above the magical 66 degrees (toasty Singapore ambient), measured by onboard i2c sensor and ma fingers.
