The AMD Radeon HD 7970 PCIE 3G GDDR5 Video Graphics Card from Diamond will blow you away with stunning 3D graphics, ultra fast processing power, and DirectX support. This 925MHz graphics card comes fully equipped with 3072MB of on board memory, a variety of ports, 28nm processing technology, 4.3 billion transistors, 2048 stream processors, and an on board fan to keep it all cool.
Avoid purchasing multiple graphics cards to enable multi-monitor support as the Radeon 7970 allows for multi-monitor support in one package via AMD Eyefinity Multi-Display Technology. AMD HD3D Technology provides an eye-catching 3D picture through a multi-monitor configuration. With AMD App Acceleration you can use the power of your GPU to improve the quality of your video, as well as speed up everyday tasks.
AMD Powerplay, Powertune, and Catalyst Technologies come together to provide the backbone for this powerhouse graphics card. AMD Powerplay allows you to take control of performance through power management technology, while AMD Powertune helps to optimize performance for TDP (thermal design power) constrained GPU's, and the AMD Catalyst technology utilizes the AMD Catalyst Control Center to provide a stable reliable experience.
PCI Express 3.0 x16 BUS Interface
PCI Express or, Peripheral Component Interconnect Express, is a computer expansion BUS standard designed to replace older BUS standards. Some of the improvements of the newer PCI Express interface include higher maximum system BUS throughput, lower I/O pin count resulting in a smaller physical footprint, and better performance-scaling for BUS devices.
DirectX 11.1 Capable Graphics
DirectX by Microsoft is a collection of application programming interfaces for handling tasks related to multimedia, especially game programming and video, on Microsoft platforms. DirectX 11.1 allows for increased performance, including features such as Direct2D, Direct3D, and DirectCompute, along with DirectXMath, XAudio2, and Slnput libraries from the XNA framework. DirectX 11.1 also features stereoscopic 3D support for gaming and video.
AMD Eyefinity Multi-Display Technology
