Got it on sale, great performance!
Not available anymore?
I bought this video card and love it, but when i decided to go crossfire a couple weeks later, it was no longer available :(

The Fastest single GPU ever made (to date). Low power requirements (relatively speaking), Cool temps and quiet.
A bit expensive
Traded up from a GTX 570 to this and what an amazing card. This card ~doubles my fps or enables me to add a bunch or eye candy (like on Metro 2033).
The 7970 runs much cooler than my 570 did and has peaked at only 67°C. It also draws less power than my 570 did (at idle and under load). It's barely audible at idle and under prolonged full load and it is still very quiet. I suspect that anyone with poor airflow in their case might see higher temps and therefore the fan speed will increase which will equal more noise. But from my experience and the reviews online, this BEDD unit is quiet under load.
Congrats on XFX/AMD/ATI getting it right on such a new product.
P.S. The card looks good to with its aluminum casing.

Experience: 4 Days

- Blazing Fast
- 3GB of RAM
- Factory overclock
- Dual slot non-stock cooling
- Noisy in comparison to aftermarket cooling
Upgraded from an overclocked & shader unlocked 6950 and this card is simply destroying every game I have thrown at it. I look forward to seeing how this card improves with driver improvements. The non stock cooling solution is pretty good, however, it is definitely noisy at higher speeds compared to the aftermarket solution that I had on my 6950. I don't think I'll need to move to a CFx solution for quite some time as this card seems to power through anything right now.

Experience: 1 Days

-runs cool
-little noise on load

Comment: an excellent review that put the Best of AMD and Nvidia card against this new heavyweight.
Posted by: headloser @01/10/12
Comment: At this point in time XFX’s biggest advantage is that they’re the only vendor offering an open air cooler. ... Regardless of the resolution and anti-aliasing setting used, the BEDD’s lead on the reference 7970 is always 7-8%
Posted by: Kramy @01/09/12
Comment: The XFX R7970 Double Dissipation is an unadulterated success and is actually one of the most accomplished video cards I have seen in the ten years I have been reviewing products.
