AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB GHz Edition Review - Taking on the GTX 680
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (DirectX 9)
The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered.
Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel.
The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

The advantage the GHz Edition has in Skyrim is pretty small until we hit the 5760x1080 resolution where the new card is about 6% faster than the original. Overall these new 12.7 drivers offer a BIG performance boost over previous versions in Skyrim and give the AMD Radeon HD 7970 the advantage over the GTX 680 at 1920x1080 and above.
