The HD 7970 Core and Double Dissipation Editions offer the best in high-end premium graphics, advanced 3D gaming, the fastest performance and best visual quality with the latest and most demanding games.
This new, ground-breaking series introduces XFX’s revolutionary 28nm Architecture which utilises the smallest GPU ever. The original redesign and improvement of the core architecture adapts not only to today’s gaming needs, but also overall computing performance. This massive leap raises the bar beyond today’s graphics performance with redefined features for the ultimate immersive experience. Utilizing AMD’s EyeFinity technology, the world’s first 28nm GPU chip provides improved texture and dynamic power management for uncompromised efficiency and performance across up to six displays.
Double dissipation with Ghost thermal technology and HydroCell Ghost Thermal technology is the optimal thermal design that allows air to pass through the heatsink directly to the PCB and core components. This exclusive design allows fan speeds to be kept lower, while allowing the heat to dissipate evenly through the card without excess noise. XFX’s exclusive Ghost Thermal design is complimented by its highly efficient HydroCell thermal solution which is a vapor chamber based on the same principles as heat-pipe technology, which uses a recirculation process and wick system for vaporization. All of this combined with XFX’s award-winning Double Dissipation dual-fan design and selected materials makes it one of the coolest and quietest cards on the market while simultaneously increasing overall graphics card performance.
Duratec Professional Grade technology XFX introduces Duratec Professional Grade technology which represents XFX high standard for component quality. Graphics cards featuring Duratec standards offer high quality components such as 2oz Copper PCB,quality components, IP-5X Certified Dust Free Fans, XFX’s exclusive bracket design for greater airflow and other quality performance enhancing components.
New GCN Architecture for Leading DirectX 11 Performance AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series (codename Tahiti) boasts the world's first 28nm GPU architecture which is optimized for gaming and compute. The Tahiti GPU features up to 32 Compute Units, each with 64 Vector Units for up to 2048 Stream Processors, along with dual geometry engines and 8 Render Back ends than can process 32 color ROPs and 128 Z/Stencil ROPs per clock. Backed by 384-bit 3GB of GDDR5 memory, AMD Radeon HD 7970 with GCN Architecture realizes an improvement of over 150% in performance/sq mm over the prior generation.
Next Generation AMD Eyefinity Technology & AMD HD3D AMD Eyefinity 2.0 features all-new support for stereo 3D, universal bezel compensation, brand new display configurations and an expanded and more immersive field of view. With full support for 3GHz HDMI and DisplayPort 1.2 HBR2, the AMD Radeon HD 7970 is set to drive next generation displays at up to 4K resolution. The AMD Radeon HD 7970 is also backed by AMD’s open 3D initiative for stereo 3D gaming and Blu-ray 3D movies.
Refined AMD PowerTune Technology & AMD ZeroCore Power Technology Designed with the most advanced power management features, the AMD Radeon HD 7970 is equipped with the intelligence to convert unused power headroom into extra performance by dynamically controlling clock speeds, allowing gamers advanced performance inside of the power envelope they specify. AMD ZeroCore Power technology found in the AMD Radeon HD 7970 enables 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, coupled with native support for PCI Express 3.0, will allow for unprecedented bandwidth in TriFire and QuadFire configurations.
