But yea you have to cut it somewhere to make more $$$ xD

And GK104 is using the same number of ROPS like 480 gtx or 580gtx, so im not expecting any miracles either..

Same by 7970 with 32 vs 6970 32 heh.. they need moooar ROPs, 40-48 would be ideal for 7970.

At least it can score good when Oc'ed,3104-16.html

This is on stock voltage/CCC limited clocks.
