It unusual for us to miss an NDA, especially when we`ve got the sample on hand. The simple fact is that AMD chose to Grinch out on us and ignore the holiday spirit, a time when we tend to be able to relax for a few weeks before the CES run of products start to show up. With not only a 10 day holiday planned, but a decision to move from Perth, Australia to Taiwan just three months ago all in the works, the HD 7970 NDA was just one that wasn`t going to be met, even though, our sample was sitting safely in Taiwan waiting for my arrival. With a couple of samples built up over the last few weeks, the HD 7970 was straight on top and today we`ll be finally checking out what the new model is all about. Unfortunately it wasn`t just a matter of testing the HD 7970 and we could get on our way, along with that we tested a couple of other cards with the most recent drivers to see just what`s going on with this new single GPU card from AMD."
