MSI 7970 Twin Frozr III graphics card review

MSI 7970 Twin Frozr III graphics card review.

MSI Twin Frozr III 7970 graphics card utilizes the latest AMD chipset.  Code named "Tahiti", this AMD chip stands atop of it's field in the crypto-currency mining realm.  This card is factory unlocked, which means it can be Over Clocked, and voltage adjusted.  This is particularly useful while mining bitcoins, litecoins, and/or other crypto-currencies.  Lowering the voltage, lowers the temperature of the card.  Please note, that the voltage adjustments are available for windows based machines only.  My understanding, is Linux does not have the capacity to adjust the voltage, yet.  If I'm mistaken, please send me a note, detailing how to do this.  I'll update this review.  You can flash the bios in these cards, to achieve lower voltages.  However, I'm not including this information in this review.

Sapphire 7950 Dual-x graphics card review.

The Sapphire AMD 7950 GPU is a fantastic graphics card for crypto mining.  The chipset, code named "Tahiti" in the 7950, is very similar to the 7970 chipset.  The 7950 has 1792 Stream processors, as compared to 2048 stream processors in the 7970.  The performance is impressive, and has broad over clocking ability.

How to configure Cgminer to mine bitcoin, and litecoin.

This seems to be a popular issue with mining crypto-currencies.  There are many nuances to get your mining configuration correct, and running stable.  Much of this is found by trial and error, because everyone's system is different.  Not to mention, each GPU has it's own personality, two identical gigabyte 7970 GPU's may behave quite differently.  Then, to make things more complex is the nature of the types of coins you are mining.  Mining bitcoin, is different than mining litecoin.  Cgminer will need to be configured properly for each coin network.
