We're about one week away from the actual retail launch of AMD's new Radeon HD 7970 graphics card. Of course, we already know the card is powerful and will be smashing all current 3D records.
A HWBOT member came across a Facebook news update from ASUS ROG's Andre Yang with, we assume, the new WR figures to be made public on January 9th. Although these numbers cannot be confirmed yet, they look legit ... and pretty frigging impressive! New records:
- 3DMark11 Performance: P32554 (previous record: P27928)
- 3DMark Vantage: P82576 (previous record: 79364)
- Heaven DX11: X7521 (previous record: X6700.94)
Roughly 7 days before we know if these are indeed the new records. Can't wait!
