05-Mar-12 // Club 3D releases Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition
Amsterdam, March 5th 2012. Club 3D proudly presents the Club 3D Radeon™ HD 7870 GHz Edition graphics card, a giant leap forward in GPU technology and the world's second GPU to break the GigaHertz barrier. Get ready for the future with 28nm GPU technology, Graphics Core Next Architecture, AMD App Acceleration and support for Ultra HD 4096p resolutions and PCI Express 3.0.
The GigaHertz barrier has been broken. Clocked to a blistering 1GHz, the Club 3D Radeon™ HD 7870 GHz Edition GPU offers more than the world's most advanced graphics: it offers the incredible performance every gamer deserves. The Club 3D Radeon™ HD 7870 GHz Edition graphics card comes standard at 1GHz GPU clock speed with an overclocking headroom at 1.1 GHz and Beyond.
SHOWCASE RADEON HD 7000 SERIES REALTIME DX11 GRAPHICS
With 1280 stream processors, a 256 bit GDDR5 memory bus that provides 2.56TFLOPs of computing performance, the Club 3D Radeon™ HD 7870 GHz Edition graphics cards are intended for gamers who never settle. Equipped with AMD Graphics Core Next Architecture and the latest power management technology, the Club 3D Radeon™ HD 7870 GHz Edition is primed to enable astonishing performance and breathtaking image quality, making it the only solution for gamers who demand the best.
Eyefinity™ 2.0 technology features all-new support for Stereo 3D, universal bezel compensation and brand new display configurations which allows the user to configure custom resolutions and the ability to relocate the Windows task bar to an arbitrary screen.
DIGITAL MULTI-POINT AUDIO (DDMA)
The next step in audio output from a graphics card. Traditionally video cards has been able to output audio through the HDMI port and audio has been restricted to to a single device, be it a monitor, HDTV or a receiver.
With DDMA now you can send audio to multiple devices via the DisplayPort combined with the HDMI.
Imagine a video conferencing where each attendee is mapped to a monitor and with DDMA set on each monitor speaker set.
Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture and AMD App Acceleration
A revolutionary new architecture. Jump right into GPGPU applications today with Microsoft C++ AMP™ and OpenCL™ for spectacular performance with the GCN architecture.
From video editors to Internet browsers, AMD App Acceleration™ is a supercharger for everyday applications. The Club 3D Radeon™ HD 7870 was engineered for the revolution in GPU compute.
AMD is introducing with the Southern Islands chipset their long idle power saving technology. Now the graphics card can turn off most of its functional units of the GPU, when they are unused, leaving only the PCI Express bus and other components active. This as a result, reduce the power consumption from 15W at idle to under 3W in long idle, a power level low enough that ZeroCore Power shuts off the fan as there is no heat generated further saving energy.
ZeroCore Power will put CrossFireX™ grapics cards in ZCP mode when not in use.
AMD POWERTUNE TECHNOLOGY
PCI EXPRESS 3.0
4 years after the introduction of PCI-E 2.0, the all new PCI-E 3.0 specification is now introduced. Providing 1GB/sec per lane bidirectional, which for a X16 device means 16 GB/sec, doubling 8 GB/sec on the previous generation.
FAST HDMI Technology
With the introduction of the HD 6000 Series, HDMI 1.4a implementation allows the graphics card to enable Stereo 3D on HDTVs or monitor displays, this same feature is also found on the new HD 7870. Now with the introduction of HDMI support for 4K x 2K displays, the HD 7870 is now able to run 4K x 2K displays (max resolution 4096x3112) over HDMI along with being able to support 1080p Stereo 3D at 120fps (60Hz/eye), with the current standard set at 48fps (24Hz/eye)
AMD CrossFireX™ multi-GPU technology
AMD CrossFireX™ technology allows you to expand your system’s graphics capabilities. AMD CrossFireX™ technology is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform. Unlocking game-dominating power, AMD CrossFireX™ harnesses the power of two or more discrete graphics cards working in parallel to dramatically improve gaming performance. With Club 3D Radeon™ HD graphics cards ready for practically every budget and the flexibility to combine two GPUs, AMD CrossFireX™ is the perfect multi-GPU solution for those who demand the best.
