Il vendor europeo Club 3D ha annunciato di recente la video card denominata Club 3D Radeon HD 7970 royalAce: il prodotto è una soluzione "factory-overclocked" che va ad ampliare la gamma di schede grafiche PokerSeries.
In base ai dati diffusi dallo stesso produttore, il core grafico della gpu della Radeon HD 7970 royalAce lavora a 1050MHz; tale frequenza di clock risulta quindi superiore di 50MHz rispetto a quella tipica del core grafico di una Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition pienamente aderente al design reference di AMD.
Una simile impostazione consente di ottenere un boost dal punto di vista delle performance in ambito gaming che Club 3D quantifica con un valore massimo in percentuale pari al 7%.
La stabilizzazione termica dell'hardware e la silenziosità operativa sono garantite da un cooler basato su una soluzione proprietaria che include due ventole e quattro heat pipe; in accordo a Club 3d la scheda lavora a 71°C in condizioni di pieno carico dovuto al gaming, mentre il livello di rumore è pari a 31.5dB in condizioni di IDLE e a 38dB in condizioni di LOAD.
Il kit di connettori di uscita della video card Club 3D Radeon HD 7970 royalAce è composto da una porta dual-link DVI-I, una HDMI e due mini-DisplayPort.
Club 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+.
If you expect above average performance of your Graphics card, Club 3D CoolStream High Performance Cooling Technology is just the kind of high performance that you have been looking for. Club 3D royalAce features high performance heatpipes that keeps the components cool and outperforms standard cooling solutions. Transferring heat from the center area to each fin, ensuring enhanced heat dissipation. The result is a dramatic increase of performance for your gaming and multimedia experience.
Extreme Gamers require Extreme performance. The PokerSeries royalAce GPU's has been cherry-picked for extreme performance. Club 3D has developed a custom PCB to accommodate faster speeds and thermal dissipation. At 50MHz faster than the reference clock of 1000MHz, you will be running faster, efficient and more reliable out of the box without you having to do anything at all. You can be assured that the royalAce series won't let you down.
UNPRECEDENTED GAMING PERFORMANCE
3DMark 11 is the latest version of the world's most popular benchmark. Designed to measure your PC's gaming performance 3DMark 11 makes extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11 including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading. Trusted by gamers worldwide to give accurate and unbiased results, 3DMark 11 is the best way to consistently and reliably test DirectX 11 under game-like loads.
Battlefield 3 is the world's most popular first person shooter and set the benchmark for real-time gaming performance introducing state-of-the-art technologies that allows you to experience superior animation, unparalleled lighting and specials effects, delivering enhanced visual quality, a grand sense of scale, massive destruction and incredible gameplay.
PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGES AND FEATURES
The performance advantages are even more substantial when you switch to titles that have been optimized for Graphics Core Next, like DiRT Showdown (up to 59%), Sniper Elite V2 (up to 40%) and Nexuiz (up to 37%). Like the graphic above, all of this data was also recorded at 2560×1600 in each game’s highest possible detail settings.
UNPRECEDENTED APPLICATION PERFORMANCE
But Graphics Core Next isn’t just for stellar gaming performance. As open compute languages like OpenCL and C++ AMP take flight, the GCN Architecture is helping AMD to build products—like the Club 3D HD 7970 GHz Edition—that provide substantial performance to the applications you use when you’re done gaming.
Take Handbrake, for example. Handbrake is a world renowned, open source video transcoding utility for Mac OS, Windows and Linux. Millions of people use this application every day to prepare videos on their PC for use on the road with smartphones or tablets. Over the past year, AMD has worked closely with the development team to introduce OpenCL acceleration into the transcoding pipeline, and the performance is exceptional.
Other applications used by millions of people every day, like WinZip, can now leverage the tremendous compute power of Graphics Core Next, too. Compared to both processors and competing graphics cards, AMD Radeon products can free system resources and get you back to work more quickly.
Efficiency was a corollary goal. By transitioning to the industry’s first 28nm process, we could design an architecture that not only packed more compute units into a given space, but more complicated and capable compute units. Any of our GPUs can offer more performance than analogous products from previous or competing architectures and, today, the Club 3D Radeon HD 7970 royalAce sets the world record for consumer GPUs by offering 4.04 TFLOPS of performance to make quick work of applications like Adobe Photoshop CS6.
