Straight away we can see really strong performance gains from our MSI HD 7970 here with numbers that sit almost in line with the dual GPU HD 6990. Compared to the GTX 680 we can see it has no issue dealing with the card at stock, but overclocked it's a little behind.

What's interesting, though, is when you move to the higher resolution Xtreme preset, the two cards are only eight points apart.
