Radeon HD 7970 Lightning Edition compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon HD 7970 Lightning Edition has exceptional performance. The levels of performance that can be reached with this graphics card are in fact far and beyond the acceptable ranges when running the latest applications and games. This graphics card is now over 7 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. The level of driver support available from the manufacturer is pretty good, which means new and recent games are being continually optimized.

With an effective SPU count of 1863, the AMD Radeon HD 7970 Lightning Edition processes shading and special graphical effects with no trouble at all. The GPU is quite power-hungry at 230 Watts, however.
