Well the re-spin is all about lower voltages for a higher clock, right?
No changes besides voltage / clockspeed?

So how is the 7970 being clocked to 1000 going to net them a 20% performance increase?

Ah, 1075. That's still a lot of extra performance for the OC %

Running 1050-1450 (core/mem) on both cards. Also things have never been so solid since the latest 9.90 drivers. I'm very happy with the current performance and flexibility to use SSAA in a few dx10 and dx11 titles.
I also have to learn how to use downsampling without the Tomm SSAA-tool, because someone found a way to do so in almost every situation.

My factory overclocked 670 performs almost identical to a 680 for $400. I dont see how a 7970 at +$30 would be an improvement on that.

On a high resolution display with a good oc it would perform considerably better. At 1080, I would go Nvidia though.

such a large price gap between the 7770 and 7850. You would think they would offer a 7830 or 7790 or even a 2 GB SKU of the 7770. I think their is a nice market there.
