Club 3D Radeon HD 7970 royalAceClub 3D takes a giant leap and destroys the competition with the release of the most quiet, cool and brutally fast Club 3D Radeon HD 7970 royalAce graphic card, the latest addition to the PokerSeries family.

Get the best of the best with Club 3D's PokerSeries, the Radeon HD 7970 royalAce offers great performance by breaking the GHz barrier on the GPU, clocking at 1050MHz, making it amazingly fast, up to 7% faster in games when compared to the reference HD 7970 GHz Edition. The Radeon HD 7970 royalAce is a quiet card, achieving 31.5 dB on idle, 38 dB at load, making it the ideal choice for gaming and multimedia. By utilizing a custom cooler design with a dual fan and four high performance heatpipes it ensures the card to remain cool at 71 ⁰C on average when gaming. A Dual BIOS toggle switch offers overclocking potential for the most demanding gamer and overclocking enthusiast.

The Club 3D Radeon HD 7970 royalAce embodies the maturity of the 28nm process, and the scalability of the Graphics Core Next architecture. This card also features an extension to AMD Powertune technology called "Boost", which allows the GPU to dynamically adjust both voltage and clockspeed above the reference clock of 1050MHz+.

NEW FEATURES

Eyefinity 2.0EYEFINITY 2.0

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.


 

DDMADIGITAL 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.

GCNGraphics 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 7970 royalAce was engineered for the revolution in GPU compute.

ZCP

ZEROCORE POWER

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 CrossFire™ grapics cards in ZCP when not in use.


HD3DAMD HD3D

AMD HD3D™ is a technology designed to enable stereoscopic 3D support in games, movies and/or photos. Additional hardware (e.g., 3D-enabled panels, 3D-enabled glasses/emitter, Blu-ray 3D drive) and/or software (e.g., Blu-ray 3D discs, 3D middleware, games) are required for the enablement of stereoscopic 3D. Not all features may be supported on all components or systems—check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities and supported technologies. AMD HD3D™ technology is enabled on AMD Radeon™ HD 7000 Series GPUs and above using Catalyst 12 or later.

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.

PCI Express 3.0

HDMIFAST 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 7970. Now with the introduction of HDMI support for 4K x 2K displays, the HD 7970 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).
