Hot on the heels of the Radeon HD 7970 GHZ Edition launch, AMD announced price cuts to the Radeon HD 7000 series. These price cuts were implemented to help make the standard 7970 competitive from a value standpoint against video cards using nVidia's GeForce GTX 670 and 680 GPUs. However, price isn't the only major factor at hand. Extra performance always helps with sales numbers, and before the 7970GE was released, many manufacturers took it into their own hands to provide a speed boost to the vanilla 7970 in the form of factory overclocking. Today we're looking at such a video card from Diamond, who has traditionally offered graphics products with an emphasis on low price. That video card in our test lab is Diamond's Radeon HD 3GB 7970 Double Black Diamond. With core and memory clocks of 1025MHz and 1450MHz (5900MHz effective) respectively, we'll see how the Double Black Diamond stacks up to the competition.
