The ultimate graphics power is here, with the SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 6GB graphics card.
Based on the cutting-edge 28nm GCN architecture, this card is built around 2048 Stream Processors, and enormous 6GB/384-bit GDDR5 memory - a World first for a consumer graphics, to deliver mind-boggling performance for multi-screen gaming as well as demanding professional applications such as content creation, video editing or rendering. The boundary of performance can be further pushed by EZ Boost Button, which increases the GPU clock frequency to extract more performance for smoother game frame rates. Vapor-X cooler is based on a new vapor chamber design and delivers exceptional thermal performance you can rely on even during extreme load condition. This card has built in onboard LEDs for easy monitoring of the PCB’s temperature at a glance.
EZ Boost Button: By default, Vapor-X HD 7970 GHz Edition 6GB runs at 1000 MHz and dynamic boosts to 1050 MHz on the engine with the memory clock at 6000 MHz effective. Simply press the EZ Boost Button, the base clock is increased to 1050 MHz with dynamic boost to 1100 MHz on the engine. The fan profile and power tune limit is also changed to performance settings.
Blue Power+ Blue Power+ consists of many premium designs, 8 phase power design for GPU VDDC, 1 phase for VDDCI and 1 phase for MVDD, brand new double side Black Diamond Choke, Directfet and 12 layer PCB to ensure the board run fast and stable. The brand new double sided Black Diamond Choke 4 reduces the temperature around the power design portion in lab test when compared to the reference PCB design.
PCB Temperature LED Built in onboard LED for users to monitor the PCB temperature.
Vapor-X Technology SAPPHIRE’s innovative Vapor-X cooling technology allows products to run not only cooler but also much quieter. A Vapor-X product means a virtually silent gaming experience and more headroom to explore performance tweaking!
Dual-X Famous for SAPPHIRE's exclusive cooling solutions like the award winning Vapor Chamber Cooling technology - Vapor-X, SAPPHIRE's reputation for innovative excellence continues to grow with the introduction of the new dual-extractor technology - Dual-X. Dual-X is a highly efficient multi-heatpipe cooler with dual fans that provide quiet and very cool operation during normal operating conditions, and superb cooling performance even under extreme load.
Black Diamond Choke & Full Solid Cap Design Choke is an important component of the graphics card. By working with the component engineer, Sapphire’s exclusive choke is 10% cooler and offers 25% more power efficiency than a normal choke. The graphics card will be more reliable and save energy. Improved reliability and better overclocking are possible by using only high-polymer, aluminum capacitors which posses far superior characteristics than regular aluminum capacitor for a longer product life. When operational temperatures drop by 20°C, the product life span is extended by a factor of ten, when the operational temperature increases by 20°C, the product life span only decreases by 10%.
