guru3d.com: Exactly six months ago, back in December 2011, the Radeon HD 7970 graphics card was born, and in that small timeframe a lot has changed already. The product was launched with success and board partners all introduced customized models with factory higher clocks and within that timeframe sure, there was NVIDIA with the GeForce GTX 670 and 680 releases battling against the 7900 series from AMD. The Radeon HD 7970 however is a potent graphics card with a lot of reserve, AMD today is releasing the GHz model of the 7970 card. Pretty much AMD is binning the Tahiti XT GPUs and the "better" batches are now labeled as Tahiti XT2.

hardocp.com: We have been documenting AMD's struggle to compete with the NVIDIA Kepler generation since it was introduced. Today AMD attempts to strike back with the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition. This video card features higher operating speeds and introduces AMD's version of GPU Boost. Will the performance justify a price of $499?

hardwareheaven.com: With a refined manufacturing process and a tweaked firmware/bios AMD are today launching a revised 7970 known as the GHz Edition, or XT2.

techpowerup.com: Today AMD launches the HD 7970 GHz Edition, in a move to take away the performance crown from NVIDIA. The new card boasts clock speeds of 1050 MHz GPU and 1500 MHz memory. Price-wise the card is on the same level as the GTX 680, but is that enough to defeat NVIDIA's single GPU flagship?

techspot.com: Having successfully launched their first 28nm GPU last January, AMD went on to release an entire family of Radeon HD 7000 GPUs over the next few months. The last of the series were the Radeon HD 7870 and 7850 graphics cards, which were closely followed by the launch of Nvidia?s next generation flagship part, the GeForce GTX 680.
