    Hi there

    Some truly great graphics deals on This Week Only, so much so they deserve their own thread. :D :D


    Asus HD 7970 DirectCU II 3072MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card - AMD 3 for FREE Promotion @ £359.99 inc VAT

    [​IMG]

    The next generation Asus HD7970-3GD5 graphics card has arrived, fitted with a 28nm GPU that packs 4.3bn transistors and is combined with 3GB GDDR5 Memory, it provides users with the speed for smoother gaming. Supporting full DirectX 11, AMD CrossFireX and AMD HD3D, the GPU includes an exclusive tweak utility which allows users to tune the performance of up to four graphics cards and check card status via an intuitive interface.

    This GPU Tweak function links the GPU clock frequency to the voltage, so as you scale the GPU clock the voltage automatically follows; a useful tool for inexperienced Overclockers, It also enables users to select between 2D and 3D mode by providing the ability to change the respective clock speeds, voltages and fan speeds of either. Disabling the 2D mode also forces the faster 3D mode, stabilising overclocking and benchmarking results.

    Embedded with GPU-Z to access accurate graphics card information, the card also contains a live update driver and BIOS benefiting users with the ability to keep their card in the best condition. Widget monitoring provides the choice to display the most needed information including a full widget, light widget or real time monitoring.

    Furthermore, new PCI Express 3.0 delivers improved encoding and twice the performance of the previous PCI Express 2.0 and vision horizons can be expanded across six displays with AMD Eyefinity technology. This technology delivers innovative graphics display capabilities enabling massive desktop workspaces and ultra-immersive visual environments for the ultimate panoramic computing experience.

    Features:-
    - All new DirectCU thermal design utilizes six all-copper heatpipes and 20% bigger dissipation area, achieving 20% cooler and 14dB quieter performance than reference
    - Acclaimed DIGI+ VRM with 12-phase Super Alloy Power technology delivers precise digital power and enhanced durability for stable overclocking
    - VGA Hotwire allows you to plug and solder wires on the card’s voltage regulators and accurately read and control Vcore, Vmem, and PLL voltages on a hardware level
    - GPU Tweak utility helps you modify and tune clock speeds, voltages, and fan performance via an intuitive interface

    I'm pretty sure the current batch of 7970 DCII's are lacking real voltage control.
    GPU Tweak lets me take it to 1.123 from 1.112, MSI AB doesn't work at all.

    Another guy who's recently bought one hasn't got voltage tweak either.

    Shame really, it's ruining my experience of an otherwise decent card.

    Incredible price as these were £220 not just under 2 months ago. Dual BIOS as well there is a good chance these unlock as well.

    The Gigabyte 7850 OC windforce is also very tempting as with that cooler and clock speeds there will no doubt still be plenty of headroom for some serious clocking.

    hmmm now I'm totally torn between adding the sapphire 6950 to my FrozrIII, or selling the frozr in a few months and getting a 670 when prices settle........anyone want to pitch in?

    I think the main factor will be whether or not I can physically FIT a second 6950 in an antec 300 :D

    I'd just go for the 670 in a few months. Less power usage, less noise, will fit it in the case no problem, and no compatibility issues as no xfire.

    The GTX 670 is supposedly faster than the 7950 (which is similar-ish performance to crossfire 6950) so I'd go for a 670 and crossfire them when the prices fall further. The GTX 670 will basically be the same performance as crossfire 6950s.
