I'm not surprised with what we're seeing here today. After having tested the new AMD Radeon HD 7000 series in a number of ways, the fact that we're seeing 100% gains under CrossFire doesn't shock me one bit. Overall there's no real surprise when it comes to performance, it does exactly what we thought it would do, offer amazing performance with super superb scaling.
The biggest shock for the setup today comes from the cooler, the temperature of the GPUs and the noise levels and I mean shock in only the best possible way. Considering the power of the setup, the temperature the cards run at combined with the extremely low noise levels are amazing. I'm not sure which other way you can put it. Like I mentioned, it's a real testament to the 28nm GPU and the Sapphire dual fan coolers.
Priced at $479.99 US as well, the model is a good option for people who want just one card, or want to go down the path of CrossFire. For the most part, this is actually a better setup than the HD 7970 in CrossFire. Not because of raw performance, of course the HD 7970 CF setup sits faster, but from the perspective of the extremely playable numbers offered at any resolution along with the more aggressive price tag.
Move onto the Sapphire version, they look even better again thanks to the extremely low noise levels of the setup when running in CrossFire along with just the overall low temperature of the setup. Again, considering the performance you get out of this setup, the noise and temperature numbers are just so much lower than you'd expect.
For a setup that falls in under $1,000 US, I really feel you're not going to get one that looks better than the one we've tested here today with what is on the market at the moment. The HD 7900 series continues to be a strong performing series that just gets better from every angle we look at it. I can't wait to see what happens when we overclock these two cards considering what we saw in our single GPU overclocking article.
