As funny as it sounds, Diamond have got the best looking HD 7970 that we've seen so far that uses the reference cooler. Sure it's only a sticker, but for most companies, that's all that separates them at the moment and the setup that Diamond has opted for makes the card stand out amongst a sea of reference cards.
The Diamond HD 7970 is just another great reference card and that's thanks so much to AMD who have been able to offer such a good base when it comes to performance and other areas like power draw. We've got little to complain about when it comes to the HD 7970 and this Diamond offering is no different.
As for the performance of the card with the latest driver, you can see across the board there are some really nice gains and in some scenarios, we come ever so close to that 60 FPS mark we aim for or even pass it. Other times we can see when we're close to it, the latest driver helps give us a bit more breathing room.
If you're in the market for a HD 7970 and happy to go down the reference cooler path, then the Diamond offering is another stand out HD 7970 that is deserving off your money.
What's even better is that the latest driver from AMD just helps the model perform even better again than it did just over two months ago when it first launched.
