Default AMD Radeon HD 7970 Benchmark Thread.

Here are my 7970 trifire results. I ran the 6970's at 925/1375 and the 7970's at defaults of 925/1375 for a clock for clock comparison.

I'm just going to get straight to the point with the results.

All the game results were ran 2560x1440 with max settings and max AA unless specified otherwise.

Any chance you'll bench a single card before throwing all 3 in there?

The cards are listed as shipped from newegg so they should be here tomorrow. If not, well, heads will roll.
