Following almost every other AMD AIB partner on the market, Sapphire has also officially launched its own HD 7970 graphics card. Based on the new 28nm Tahiti GPU, the new Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 features reference design and stock clocks.

The new Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 features the same reference dual-slot cooler like most other HD 7970 graphics cards on the market and works at stock clocks set at 950MHz for the GPU and 5.5GHz for 3GB of GDDR5 memory paried up with a 384-bit memory interface. The card packs 2048 stream processors, has support for DirectX 11.1 and AMD HD3D Technology and AMD Eyefinity.

The recent rumours suggested that Sapphire is gearing up to release a full lineup of non-reference HD 7970 cards with Atomic and Toxic edition branding. The new Sapphire HD 7970 graphics card is launched with a suggested price set at US $549 while in Europe, the cheapest Sapphire HD 7970 is currently listed at €528,80.
