本年度最佳显卡，没有之一！超频性能良好，核心上到1200没有问题，显存的可超程度更高，完全可以稳定在1800，不过此时功耗会快速上升。最体现HIS诚意的就是显卡的散热系统，这是我用过的高端显卡中温噪平衡效能最好，最性感的。HIS，keep up the good work!

Really nice and quiet card.
I'm used to try bitcoins with my old ATI HD 4870 with about 70Mhash/sec. Now with this and little overclocker to GPU 1050MHz @ 1150Mhz and to move to Memory 1400Mhz @ 1535Mhz so basicly the memore moved from 5600MHz @ 6140MHz.
With this new HIS 7970 IceQ X² Turbo 3GB GDDR5 is a good miner. Around 660Mhash/sec.
So with that in mind this seems to be a very performancing card without a doubt.
Will try FullHD-gaming later but now some coffee and a few job tasks.
Hope this helps someone.

"... данный вариант исполнения мне очень нравится. Видеокарта смотрится очень стильно и современно." Ferra.ru - Удачная покупка
"A Radeon HD7970 quite well modified : the performance level is really increased and the replacement of the AMD reference cooler for custom one is judicious." LesNumeriques - Rated 5 Stars
"通过此次评测我们可以总结出,HIS在显卡 散热器上的造诣是"精打细算"的台商品牌很难追赶得上的,这就好似在说德系车与日系车一样,如果是相同的研发成本,德系品牌会把 多余的预算花在某处多加一块钢板,而日系则会考虑内装上是不是多加一块真皮材质而非织面物.当然,我无意否认台系在PCB上的研 发水准,例如MSI的Lightning在极限超频下相信一定是目前世界数一数二的产品,但是大部分的用户买回家并不是改用液氮 来超极限,相差不大的性能但拥有本质提高的散热与噪音水准才是用户更为需求的亲民货." Chiphell "Recommended"
"The final result was excellent. Thanks to new generation system IceQ cooler line X, called "IceQ X ²". The system is among the best solutions on the market, as we saw in the tests, beating competitors in most cases when it comes to temperature, in addition to its noise is among the lowest. As might be expected, the HIS has improved the quality of some components in order to better performance when the board is required more, read overclocked, and worked." Adrenline "Diamond Product"
