ASUS MATRIX HD 7970 Platinum Review Round-Up

The NDA has expired and the review embargo has been lifted on ASUS MATRIX HD 7970 Platinum video card. Reviews are coming in from around the internet and, as always, we've done our best to round up as many reviews as we can and post links to them here for your convenience. We'll add more reviews throughout the day as we find them.

Faster and more aggressive than any other AMD-based graphics card, ASUS ROG MATRIX HD 7970 GHz Edition represents the apex of graphics performance and tweakability for enthusiast gamers and competitive benchmarkers. With its hand-picked GPU overclocked to 1100MHz, it offers extensive overvolting facilities via VGA Hotwire and TweakIt. The latter also enables one-press 100% fan speed activation. Power delivery uses 20-phase architecture, tapped and managed by DIGI+ VRM and Super Alloy Power components. The ASUS GPU Tweak utility has been reloaded for MATRIX HD 7970 GHz Edition, now offering GPU loadline calibration and VRM overclocking. The card is offered in a standard version and a platinum edition, both including a Diablo III mouse pad. The platinum edition features 50MHz faster boost and base clocks.
