FINAL RESULT

COMMENT - "The Asus Radeon HD 7970 does very well with each game we use for benchmarking beating Zotac GeForce GTX 580 with all 8 games we use for benchmarking. The difference in performance was between 5% to 21% more performance which is a great showing by Asus Radeon HD 7970. The Asus Radeon HD 7970 outperformed Zotac GeForce GTX 580 by 11% over all 8 games which is a good result. Taking price into account it's not looking so good for Asus Radeon HD 7970 which costs 23% more than Zotac GeForce GTX 580. So for an extra 11% performance you have to pay 23% more for Asus Radeon HD 7970. Ofcourse we didn't take into account overclocking and this is where Asus Radeon HD 7970 could make up the difference but not everyone overclocks their video card. If you are going to be overclocking Asus Radeon HD 7970 then it will be a good buy."
