ASUS Matrix Radeon HD 7970 Platinum ReviewThere is a reason ASUS is so well respected amongst PC enthusiasts. The company has been making some of the best-performing, most feature-rich products in the space for years. Whether it’s a min-ITX motherboard, sleek Ultrabook, or a full-fledged, touch-enabled All-In-One system, ASUS has highly competitive products that are worthy of consideration.

It’s not just about performance and features, though. ASUS has also been a long-time innovator willing to release relatively low-volume products that cater to ultra, hardcore-enthusiasts. Such is the case with the ASUS ROG Matrix 7970 Platinum edition graphics card we’ll be showing you here today...

Looks like a beast of a card. One should be enough to do the job for most of us.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Nicely done. I hope AMD can turn itself around in the processor department as well.

Marco, I note that here, as usual when it comes to graphic-card tests, it seems to be the case that a monitor with a 16:10 format - at 1920 x 1200 pixels and 2560 x 1600 pixels, respectively - has been used. I haven't, however, been able to find any information on just which monitor was was chosen (my apologies if I've missed the relevant passage) for these (and other) tests. Would it be possivle to divulge this (for me, at least) intereting piece of nformation ?...

@Henri - My test rig uses a Dell UltraSharp 3008WFP 30" LCD.

as this card takes three slots what motherboard is suitable for crossfireX and allow enogh room for the fans to cool the vid cards effeciently...my ASUS ROG mother board will take two cards but they will be bang up against each other.
