More From TUL: PowerColor HD7970 With Dual Fans

Hot on the heels of its announcement of a pair of HD7950 graphics cards, TUL unveiled the PowerColor HD7970, which features a dual 92mm fan design like its PCS+ HD7950. The card also features a SSU-shape heat pipe to aid in cooling and noise reduction, which the company claims can cut excess sound by as much as 15%.

The PowerColor HD7970 has a 925MHz core clock, 3GB of DDR5 memory (1375MHz), and 384-bit memory bandwidth and features PCI-E 3.0 support, Eyefinity, DirectX11.1, and CrossFireX support. Ports include DL-DVI-I, HDMI, and a pair of mini DisplayPorts.



POWERCOLOR ANNOUNCED HD7970 WITH DUAL FAN COOLING SOLUTION
Never Settle for Less Performance

Taipei, Taiwan –February 10th, 2012 -- TUL Corporation, a leading manufacturer of AMD graphic cards, today added a new HD7970 graphics solution with dual cooling fan design: the PowerColor HD7970. Equipped with PowerColor exclusive cooling solution, the latest HD7970 lowers down 10% temperature through 92mm ultra big fan and unique SSU-shape heat pipe design; while dissipates the excessive heat efficiently, it delivers low noisy level up to 15% quieter than reference version, providing no-compromise cooling effect with silent gaming environment.

The PowerColor HD7970 has core clock at 925MHz and memory clock at 1375MHz; with compatible with PCI Express 3.0, enabling unprecedented gaming performance by doubling the bandwidth per lane of previous generation. With 3GB GDDR5 onboard memory, the latest HD7970 allows the highest bandwidth for demanding DirectX® 11.1 gaming title, delivering the astonishing image quality up to six displays* by utilizing AMD Eyefinity technology.

The latest HD7970 takes advantage of AMD PowerTune technology, enabling higher clockspeeds while needed through unused TDP headroom, delivering the best power efficiency. Also, with the support of AMD APP Acceleration, it creates a “co-processing” environment of GPU and CPU, simply speeds up the everyday applications.

Huh, though there'd be a reason for releasing the non-reference 7970's late but I guess they were just late to the part, in any case the PowerColor looks good but I'm more interested in how well it'll perform and how high a clock it'll be able to get.

Don't these companies realise how important it is to proofread blurbs before releasing them, in particular when they are couched in a language which is not native to the authors ? The above is a prime example of how not to do....
