Features:

SAPPHIRE HD 7970 3GB Vapor-X Edition has the latest GDDR5 memory clocked at 6000MHz effective, and runs with a core clock speed of 1000 MHz which with PowerTune Dynamic Boost rises to 1050 MHz on the engine. It has a slightly less sophisticated 8-phase power design and the versatile output configuration of Dual-link DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort.

The Vapor-X cooler is based on a new vapor chamber designed especially for this series. Heat is carried away by four heatpipes (2 x 8mm plus 2 x 6mm), and finally dispersed by two 90mm fan with aerofoil blades and dust repelling bearings. The Vapor-X cooler easily handles the heat generated from the HD 7970 GHz Editions even under extreme load conditions.

Pros
Cool and quiet
Cons
none
Summary
I bought this as a discounted open box item from NCIX on Ebay.
The picture, specifications/description, and model number are not consistent. I bought it hoping the card was actually the one referred to by the model number, and it was! It's a Ghz Edition! 1050 clock, not 925.

Pros
I was between this and the MSI Lightning. Since the Lightning is more expensive and never in stock, I decided to go with the Sapphire, and am very happy with my choice. So far I have hit 1200/1700 without changing voltage at all! And I haven't even tried to push it any further yet, so I'm sure it's still capable of even more.
Cons
None. No coil noise, no black screen issues
Summary
Very happy with my purchase. OC's like crazy and the cooler is solid.

Pros
- Best single GPU card on the market
- Lots of overclock headroom
- Reference design
- Includes Display Port adapters, HDMI Cable, Long Crossfire bridges and more..
Cons
- No backplate
- Drivers
Summary
This thing is fast really fast. I had 6870 CF before this beast and I'm glad I switched. No more Crossfire issues and waiting for news CAP Profiles. Performance is better with the 7970 obviously but not by much as the 6870 CF scales nicely. I believe we will see a more important gap in the performance of the 7970 when they will release some good drivers. Drivers are really terrible right now that's the only down side when buying a new gen card. There's no coil whine or squealing.
