AMD have a bunch of monkeys writing their drivers. Another killing blow to themselves.


You can't play that card anymore after recent issues with Nvidia's drivers.


That card can and will always be pulled as long as the monkeys still tinker around at AMD.

Why buy GHz models?

peace of mind that you'll get your desired speeds maybe? I don't have a GHz card, but i can see the draw... kind of.


7970GHz was just a reaction to 680, and after that, a big marketing gimmick.

That's like saying "you can't say PowerColor is a s***** brand anymore because I had a Sapphire card that died last week."

It'd be more like, "most of Sapphire's recent cards are experiencing issues, while PowerColor has been surprisingly solid lately."

What is even better? They are preparing the 7990 replacement, dubbed Vesuvius or something. I am starting to see why they named the cards after volcanoes.
