SAPPHIRE RADEON HD 7870
"The Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 review also features the Sapphire Radeon HD 7850. The Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 uses the Pitcairn GPU at 1000Mhz and has 2GB GDDR5 memory running at 4800Mhz. The Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 has a 256Bit Memory Interface, 1280 Shader Processors and DirectX 11.1. The Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 uses the Pitcairn GPU at 860Mhz and has 2GB GDDR5 memory running at 4800Mhz. The Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 has a 256Bit Memory Interface, 1024 Shader Processors and DirectX 11.1. We will be testing the Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 and Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 using Battlefield 3, Crysis 2, Dirt 3, Dragon Age II, Hard Reset, Modern Warfare 3, Elder Scrolls V Skyrim and the Witcher 2 games for benchmarking."
"The new Sapphire Radeon HD 7800 series of graphics cards is based on the third family of GPU's from AMD built in its new 28nm process and featuring the highly acclaimed GCN graphics processing architecture. The new Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 and Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 GPUs have an optimised internal structure sharing many of the features of the high performance HD 7900 series already released but with fewer Stream processors and a new high speed 256-bit memory interface to the latest DDR5 memory types. It is aimed at mainstream gamers looking for excellent performance together with good value and all the latest features."
SAPPHIRE RADEON HD 7870 FEATURES
"Equipped with the most popular Dual Link DVI (Digital Visual Interface), this card is able to display ultra high resolutions of up to 2560 x 1600 at 60Hz."
"Enjoy the benefits of the latest generation display interface, DisplayPort. With the ultra high HD resolution, the graphics card ensures that you are able to support the latest generation of LCD monitors."
AMD HD3D Technology
"Enjoy the most immersive experience possible with full support for High Definition Stereoscopic 3D, a technique that presents 2D images (movies, games, photos) in a format that creates the illusion of three-dimensional depth when using compatible 3D displays / glasses / software."
28 nm GCN (Graphic Core Next) Architecture
"The new and 28nm GCN Architecture with more efficient process technology puts more transistors in less space, enabling a dramatic increase in Processing Power. Crank the settings, devastate your enemies and bear witness to absurdly high frame rates with AMD Radeon HD7000 series graphics card-DirectX 11 has never looked this good. Maximum setting and crazy performance shouldn't be a compromise. The AMD Radeon HD7900 Series with the new 28 nm GCN Architecture assures that it's not."
PCI Express 3.0
"PCI-Express 3.0 delivers double the bandwidth per lane of PCIe Gen 2 for faster GPU (GPU communication-up to 16GB/sec in each direction), maximizing the performance from your GPU when paired with the latest platforms."
Enhanced Multi-GPU Capabilities
"Triple or quadruple gaming power with AMD CrossFireX Multi-GPU technology. Increase your gaming performance up to 2x with AMD CrossFire technology, 2.75x for TriFire configurations, or with QuadFire configurations. With AMD ZeroCore Power Technology, the graphics card in slave modes will be switched off in idle to maximize the power saving."
"The gigahertz barrier has been broken. Armed with a stunning 1GHz GPU based on the revolutionary GCN Architecture, the AMD Radeon HD 7000 GHz Edition (Selected model) is quite simply engineered to annihilate."
