AMD Radeon HD 7950 Clock Speeds Revealed
This month-end, AMD will launch the second product in its high-end Radeon HD 7900 series, the HD 7950, which is based on the same "Tahiti" silicon as the HD 7970, but with a few components disabled. Reliable sources revealed to DonanimHaber the reference clock speeds of the HD 7950. The core of the HD 7950 will be clocked at 800 MHz, and the memory at 1250 MHz (actual), 5.00 GHz (GDDR5 effective). This, compared to the 925 MHz (core), 1375 MHz (memory actual)/ 5.50 GHz (memory effective) clock speeds of the HD 7970. The HD 7950 will hence be a good overclocker considering the speeds it comes with, there is scope for quite a few factory-OC models from AIBs. In related news, DonanimHaber notes that the HD 7950 on average will be US $100-150 cheaper than the HD 7970 (US $400-$450).

I don't think there's anything from AMD for me this generation. However, there may be some really nice upgrades for my friend's gaming rigs and maybe even for a few of my family members.

Me, I'm holding out for Kepler. I know nVidia is usually focused on sheer performance, everything else be damned. lol But I'm hoping that their midrange product will offer a substantial boost over my 5870, while cutting power consumption and heat out put. Not too optimistic there though. I may have this 5870 for quite a while.

EDIT: So I just went through and re-read the Anandtech review of the 7970. They include in it a 5870. Gave me a little bit more to go off of. It seems I may have been a bit harsh on the 7970. It still isn't as huge a performance increase over the 6970 and 580 as I would have hoped, but it does seem to be on average at least 50% faster than the 5870. It also seems to consume roughly the same amount of power under load, and less when idle.

I think most of my disappointment comes in that I really was hoping it'd be comparable to the 6990. If the single GPU could hold it's own against the 6990 and GTX590, that'd mean the lower end parts would be rediculously fast as well. Likely an unrealistic and unfair expectation.

I am quite satisfied with my 5870 however, and further cemented by the rediculous price of the 7970 I see very little reason to upgrade. Maybe if I find an unbelievable deal on a 6970 down the line (bought my 5870 for $90, so if I ever find a 6970 for say $150 or less) I'll snag that. I just really see no reason to upgrade though. My 5870 plays everything I want it to (Skyrim 100% maxed in-game settings and 2xAA via in-game options), haven't played RAGE yet, but BF3 is maxed (no AA). It seems at worst I have to play without AA, at best I can have some AA. But I've yet to find a game in my library where I have to turn anything down other than the AA.

No, I'm still thinking that if I do buy a new video card it likely won't be anything from this generation from either AMD or nVidia. I'll likely wait for the refresh or maybe the next generation (Radeon 9xxx or GTX8xx). I dunno- Radeon 9870.... just sounds... mean.

Hmm i think from memory most of the reviews i saw the 7970 was quiet close to the 6990/590 at some points, or maybe just about 20% slower than it..but usually the min fps for example is doubled that of a 6970..

so compared to a 5870(which i am on atm) its a significant boost/features.

Totally in agreement with you Redeemed. I've had my 5870 for over a yr now, and it runs my library of games flawlessly...maxed out @ 1920x1200...some games with AA some without. Just a great card and I'm not quite willing to spend my hard earned cash just yet.
