Rumor: AMD Radeon HD 7970 GPUs GHz Edition will “GPU Boost”

A few months ago we learned that plans to launch soon a new Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition “XT2 Tahiti” , GPU whose characteristics are somewhat confusing, because recent data suggest that operate at a frequency of 1.1GHz . So why call it AMD plans GHz edition will operate at 1.1GHz?

The answer to this question brings us to the OBR Hardware, who say the new AMD GPUs will incorporate a new special feature, which is very similar to the technology GPU Boost Nvidia GPUs implemented in Kepler .

With this new technology unnamed official from AMD, the GPU will run at a base of 1GHz, which can automatically increase up to 1.2GHz, 25MHz in multiples, ie incorporating eight steps as GPU Boost (the steps are 13MHz). Because this technology, hardware detection utilities are not able to identify the correct frequency of the new GPU, resulting in many websites various information is provided on the frequency of GPU 1050MHz, 1075MHz or 1100MHz and in the most recent rumors.

It is expected that the new GPU from AMD makes its appearance next month, although OBR claims to have a copy that will make a review soon.
