Radeon 7970 To Perform Up To 1.6x Faster Than The GTX580 [Rumor]

With the new Radeon 7000 series on its way soon, we’re all eagerly waiting to find out just how the new 28nm processing technology is going to stack up to what’s on the market right now. We could start seeing official reports as early as the end of the week, but why not jump the gun with some rumors?

According to a couple of charts that GuruHt has discovered, it seems that the 7970 could have a performance gain of 1.6x over the current champ, Nvidia’s GTX580. That’s a hefty boost, if the nubers hold true.

Unfortunately, even if these results are 100% true, we have no real basis for comparison. We don’t know anything about the other hardware used, or what settings each game was tested on. It’s fun to look at these sorts of rumors, but we’ll have to hold out for some solid info before getting too excited.
