New Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 operates at a frequency of 1100 MHz

Gigabyte presented a new overclocking model of video card Tahiti XT, designated as GV-R797TO-3GD. In comparison to the current Radeon HD 7970 OC (GV-797OC-3GD), the newcomer has some advantages. In particular, it is known that the graphic adapter is based on the graphics chip Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition that is selected. The clock frequency of the accelerator is increased from 1000/5500 MHz (core / memory) to the 1100/6000 MHz, comparing GV-797OC-3GD. Standard values, recall — 925 MHz GPU with chip and 5500 MHz with GDDR5 microchip.

Externally the video adapter has no changes: the PCB soldered 3 GB of memory, which combines with the GPU on a 384-bit brace. The number of stream processors is unchanged — 2048 units. The design of printed circuit board includes electrical components Ultra Durable VGA. High-effective WindForce 3X cooler consists of a copper base, a few copper heat pipes and three 80-mm fans.

Unlike its predecessor, Gigabyte GV-R797TO-3GD has a gold plated …

MSI Announces GTX 960 Series of Graphics Cards

MSI is glad to introduce its own version of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 960 GPU.
