Club 3D Shows Its GPU Poker Face

Kenny Rogers says you have to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away and know when to run. His song, The Gambler, was a metaphor for life, but it could also be the theme song for Club 3D's new PokerSeries graphics cards.

What does poker have to do with GPUs, you ask? Well, both are played with 'cards', so to speak (integrated GPUs notwithstanding). Other than that, we're not really sure why Club 3D has chosen to draw a parallel between playing cards and graphics cards, but hey, if you're a poker junkie, this might be the greatest thing ever.


Club 3D is kicking off the series with its Radeon HD 7870 jokerCard. It sports reference clockspeeds but is cooled with a custom cooler that purportedly does a better job than the stock cooler, and of course looks different to boot.

Other PokerSeries designations on tap from Club 3D include royalQueen, royalKing (overclocked cards), and royalAce (super overclocked cards).

Nice, my guess is since their logo is a club from playing cards that this just followed. The cards certainly look nice but I would have to see a review before I would trust them.

I like it I wonder if when the fan spins fast enough if the club is FLAT in rotation!

A royal flush with an ace in the pocket. Seems about right, why do you need a review? the options are simple, it will be reliable unless you get the overclocked models. if you get the overclocked models the main info your looking at is the speed and rendition provided by the GPU. just a spec sheet would suffice.

I don't understand the point of this at all.. card and poker gaming requires minimal graphic capabilities... like just enough to run flash in a browser...

So confused...

The reference to Poker and Cards is just a ~hook~ to sell product.  It has nothing to do with the card's capabilities.

I too would like to see some English speaking reviews on these cards, and I guess if you live in Europe you can just run out and buy them. This company is big over there. And they don't sell in America as of yet either..
