A bit of surprising news this morning. Without much hype or real knowledge of the product beforehand AMD has officially announced AND launched the new “fastest single core graphics card on the planet.” The AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card. Initial reviews look to be exactly that, fast. Until I get my hands on one of these new HD 7970′s, I will reserve my opinion on whether it’s the new fastest card on the planet. If you are thinking of just buying before you read reviews, be ready to fork out $549.99 USD… That’s a lot of dosh.
