AMD AMD Radeon 7970 GHz Edition?

Might be a tweaked Tahiti coming, with higher clocks (GHz Edition is used for cards with core engine clocks at 1GHz or higher):

Actually setting the product "boundries" for Tahiti happened a while ago, on initial engineering material and few wafers out from the fab; Pitcairn and Verde on the other hand had their product boundries set when Tahiti production starts were already occuring and there is a very quick evolution in terms of understanding things with the new process / chips.

I guess the question you want to ask is whether, now that we know things have evolved, are we going back to re-look at Tahiti....

No doubt in my mind about this and yes, timing is everything.

AMD will let Kepler launch and counter with a 1Ghz 7970.

Wut? GHz edition at 1 GHz is useless. As for 1.2 Ghz, might be worthwhile (around 15% performance bump) but at say another 50$ (e.g., 600 price tag, it will be completely useless).

Also, I have run ATi cards for 4 gens now and have supported their practices when they made sense to me. The new cards in 7XXX series are utter crap with little to no price/perf advantages after 1+ year of wait.

Really? I think the 7970 is much better than the 6970, the 7870 is much better than the 6870 and the 7770 is much, much better than the 6770. Where is the problem? That they are not giving them away?

Ghz Edition branding is for any card with core clocks at 1GHz or higher. Again emphasized so the brain dead can understand.
