CrossFireX array of four cards Radeon HD 7970 in extreme speed breaks several world records
Just about a week ago we received from the overclocker Shamino an "appetizer" that revealed to us the The monstrous potential Of the graphics card (mono-linear) Leading the new generation of AMD, And here comes the main course - an overclocker named Andre Yang from the PURE group has put together four reference models of theRadeon HD 7970 to a formidable CrossFireX array, which also (how not) has passed The fast Massively under liquid nitrogen.
Other Component A particularly monstrous system that included an Asus Rampage IV Extreme motherboard, a Core i7-3960X processor at 5.6GHz speed and four cards Radeon HD 7970 that reached a core frequency of 1600MHz and frequency Memories (Effective) of about 7.6GHz.
The system (which required a pair of 1,200 watt power supplies to operate, and made it clear to us why such power supplies exist in the market at all) was stable enough to pass several allotments of popular performance tests in the field, and the results were sky high - a score of 18,386 God-Extreme, A generic 83,761 score and an 98,278 graphics score on 3DMark Vantage, an 7542 score on Unigine Heaven in the DX11 version Extreme And more.
In all performance tests, the system has achieved results that can certainly be defined as new world standards, not that it should surprise anyone.
It is reasonable to assume that in the coming year we will see these peaks breaking several more times, whether in my hands Upgraded Radeon HD 7970 models Or by cards The Kepler The senior officials of NVIDIA. Either way, there is no doubt that the current results are a great opening for 2012.
