Quoted from AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition Reviews:
Check out these quotes from AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition reviews & previews
"AMD's exact plans for the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition are unclear. AMD's partners haven't all decided yet how to proceed, and the recommended price difference is pretty big. Most likely the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition will be available for about the same price as the GeForce GTX 680. AMD has the fastest card, but there's not a huge difference with Nvidia in terms of price/performance ratio."
"While we may have seen this all before from other pre-overclocked HD 7970 cards, under no circumstance should you overlook the GHz Edition. Performance per watt has certainly taken a step in the right direction, AMD’s Boost works when it has to and pricing is actually quite fair considering its framerate advantage at higher detail settings. In our opinion and with all other things being equal, the HD 7970 GHz Edition is the card to have for ultra high resolution gaming. Just remember that not all GHz Edition cards will have the same specifications or performance."
"While it is unlikely to have existing 7900 series owners reaching for their wallet AMDs new card is a decent improvement on the original 7970. The GHz Edition will push AMDs partners to aim higher with their own models and thanks to a refined GPU may well be the final step towards a 7990."
"Another fast card from AMD, but we are slightly disappointed they didn’t develop a new, improved cooling solution. Will they always rely on their partners to fix this?"
"Therefore the cost of matching, or at best slightly beating, the GeForce GTX 680 has been decreased in value as the cheaper Radeon HD 7950 and GeForce GTX 670 graphics cards are still the way to go for smart shoppers. Still, if the primary role for the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition is to compete with Nvidia’s best, then it does fulfill that role rather well."
