Powered by the AMD Radeon HD 7790 GPU with the 28nm GCN Architecture, SAPPHIRE’s 100356-2GOCL graphics card supports Microsoft DirectX 11, AMD Eyefinity 2.0 technology, AMD PowerTune technology, AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) technology, and AMD HD3D technology. With these features, the 100356-2GOCL is ideal to provide gamers with an impressive experience featuring uncompromised performance and flawless graphics.
What’s more, the 2GB board features a new, cooler design: a dual heatpipe system and a single aerofoil section fan assembly – with dust repelling bearings – provide maximum efficiency and reliability. A unique feature is the integration into the cooling system of the metal backplate, which cools the memory chips on the reverse side of the pcb and helps with pcb rigidity. A finned heatsink, attached to the backplate, passes through the pcb and extends into the airflow from the fan on the front side of the card. This enables the airflow to carry away the heat from the components on the back of the pcb, and reduces memory temperatures to as low as 13 C.
28nm GCN Architecture for Leading DirectX 11 Performance The Radeon HD 7790 is based on the revolutionary 28nm GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture, with 14 compute units (896 stream processors), 56 texture units, 16 color ROP units, 64 Z/Stencil ROP units, and dual geometry engines for advanced graphics performance. GCN architecture is finely tuned for awesome DirectX 11.1 gaming. It also allows the GPU to accommodate more transistors for increased transistor density. As a result, performance is higher and heat is lower.
Next Generation AMD Eyefinity Technology and AMD HD3D Next generation AMD Eyefinity features all-new support for stereo 3D, universal bezel compensation, brand-new display configurations, and an expanded and more immersive field of view. The AMD Radeon HD 7790 is also backed by AMD’s open 3D initiative for stereo 3D gaming and Blu-ray 3D movies.
Refined AMD PowerTune Technology and AMD ZeroCore Power Technology Designed with the most advanced power management features, the AMD Radeon HD 7790 is equipped with the intelligence to convert unused power headroom into extra performance. It dynamically controls clock speeds, allowing gamers advanced performance inside of the power envelope they specify. AMD ZeroCore Power technology, found in the AMD Radeon HD 7790, enables a lower idle power than any other currently available graphics card. With support for AMD CrossFire technology, AMD ZeroCore Power eliminates wasted power, as well as additional heat and noise from extra cards when you are not using them.
Enhanced Multi-GPU Capabilities with PCI Express 3.0 AMD CrossFire technology is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform. Unlocking game-dominating power, AMD CrossFire technology, and native support for PCI Express 3.0, it allows for unprecedented bandwidth in TriFire and QuadFire configurations.
Best Microsoft DirectX11 Support The tessellation performance on AMD Radeon HD 7000 Series is up to two times faster than the previous generation; DirectCompute performance is also faster to accelerate advanced post-processing, filtering, and anti-aliasing techniques. Direct X11 games have never looked this good!
AMD App Acceleration AMD App Acceleration lets you speed up applications and enjoy brilliant video. Enjoy improved GPGPU performance, and new features including Video Codec Engine (VCE) in many top media, entertainment, and everyday productivity applications powered by the unprecedented 28nm GCN Architecture. The AMD Radeon HD 7970 fully supports DirectCompute 11 and OpenCL 1.2, enabling broad application support today and tomorrow.
