7870 joker card released

Instead of Pitcairn cores it uses Tahiti LE cores. While not as good as the normal Tahiti cores based on the reviews they still hold their own against the real deal.

In some games it actually does better than the 7950, skyrim at under 1600P and wow at some resolutions.

Looks like it overclocks like a normal Tahiti too.

It also crossfires with the 7970 and 7950, and *NOT* the 7870/7850. I don't like the idea of being limited by the lower memory capacity, however, on my 7970.

I don't really get why they push out so many confusing variants at such close price/performance points.

The only thing I can figure is that they have either an excess of Tahiti chips or a shortage of Pitcairn. Whether the reason is demand or supply is anyone's guess.

They should have named this the 7930
