There was much fuss about AMD’s new Radeon HD 7970 GHz or “Tahiti 2” video cards. The simple way to put is that the company couldn’t resist not taking advantage of Tahiti’s ability to achieve high clock frequencies.
Therefore AMD, after first gaining the performance crown with Tahiti back in winter, decided to take the lead again, but without making much effort. The thing is that AMD is confident that most of the current Tahiti GPUs are able to safely reach 1050 MHz and that the memory is well within limits if clocked at 6000 MHz. There is no guarantee that the cards sold as the normal AMD Radeon HD 7970 until now will actually work at these frequencies, but most of the overclocking done over the past six months has proved that they do indeed work just fine.
Head on to LegitReviews.com for the vBIOS that will transform your AMD Radeon HD 7970 video card into a Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition for free. Here’s the link, but keep in mind that the vBIOS is targeted at reference default models and great care must be taken when attempting to use it on non-reference Tahiti cards.
