Shamino Hits 1,700MHz GPU With A Radeon HD 7970 And LN2

Article Tags:
Shamino has taken the new AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB graphics card, put it under liquid nitrogen (LN2) and overclocked it to its limits. The end result? Firstly a huge 1,650MHz core frequency was hit, then half a day later 1,700MHz was squeezed out of it! That's a massive 84% increase over stock speed. Running it through a few 3DMark benches, he cracked out nearly 55k in Vantage and a smidge over 15k in 3DMark11, breaking the single GPU worldwide title. Shamino claims this one will be used in a 4-way CrossFireX setup soon, for which we eagerly await the results. Are you getting a HD 7970 for yourself?
