AVADirect Adds Radeon HD 7970 to Its Lineup

It took a little over a month after the debut of the ATI Radeon HD 7970, but AVADirect now offers 7970 graphics cards from multiple manufacturers. The latest and greatest in graphics from AMD, the 7970 will offer a nice bump in performance for AVADirect systems.

Although cards from more manufacturers will be added by and by, AVADirect customers can currently choose from ASUS ($651.92), Sapphire ($651.50), and XFX ($691.76) branded HD 7970 cards.

The press release (below) notes that although it’s been tough to find 7970s thus far, AMD told AVADirect that availability will be increasing.

  

AVADirect Adds ATI Radeon HD 7970 Graphics Cards

Twinsburg, OH - January 27th, 2012 - AVADirect, a leading provider of custom computer solutions, now offers ATI Radeon HD 7970 Graphics Cards.

The ATI Radeon HD 7970 series was announced on December 22nd, 2011 as the new architecture for future graphics by AMD. Originally code-named "Tahiti", the new AMD GPU is known internally as the GCN (Graphics Core Next) gen GPU for future designs. The 7970 boasts all original features of its predecessor, but also includes a newly added function known as "Zerocore Power" which will reduce clocks of unused GPUs to conserve power and heat generation. The design of the 7970 is based off of a 3GB GDDR5, 384-bit memory bus that will deliver improved performance across the board, and has been documented to improve gaming between 12%-25% on average. AVADirect will continue to add ATI HD 7970 models, from various manufacturers, as they are released. Since December of last year, the ATI Radeon HD 7970's have been quite scarce, but according to AMD we will now begin to see more availability that is accessible to those interested.

Good to see more system manufactuers having the option of including the 7970 in their systems, especially AVADirect.

Agreed but it's still reasonable compared to the GTX 580.

Time will tell if NVIDIA releases something that changes AMD's prices.

Yeah they are high. I think most people would choose the 580 considering the benchmarks. I still think Nvidia will have to release something interesting soon.  Even if the 7970 isn't necessarily as powerful as the 580/590, it is only a single GPU.

considering what bench? 7970 is a better performer  than the 580 no doubt about that while using almost the same watts..You are talking about 590 vs a 7970? you are joking right?

7970 beats out the 580 in terms of pure performance and the fact that it's 28nm and overclockable to a certain degree just increases it's dominance over NVIDIA until the latest 28nm comes out or they're able to get all of the performance out of the GPU like Dave said.
