    That's a bit of a silly price! It's slightly offset by the fact that the 480 used more power than CERN, but at least you don't need central heating

    Speaking of CERN, I applied for a job there. Having a Swiss account makes life a bit easier and I already have a permit to work in Switzerland, so win win win!

    A good idea IMO, because any graphics card you bought today would be obsolete in less than 28 days.

    Why stop at one 7970?



    It looks like there will also be quite a few non-reference Radeon HD 7970s e.g. Sapphire's Flex 6G with 6GB RAM and the Atomic RX (factory overclocked from 925MHz to 1,335MHz!!!).
