Written by Slobodan Simic

Set to work at 1100MHz for GPU


Although it was pictured back at Cebit, we now managed to dig out more information on Powercolor's upcoming Radeon HD 7970 Vortex II graphics card. The specs of the card are finallized and it looks like this one will end up with an impressive factory overclock and GPU will be set at 1100MHz.

The new Powercolor HD 7970 Vortex II will use a custom PCB and feature the same Tahiti XT GPU with 2048 stream processors in 32 GCN Compute Units and 3GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 384-bit memory interface. As noted, the card will end up with pretty impressive factory overclock, 1100MHz for the GPU and 1425MHz (5.7GHz effective) for the memory. The reference card works at 925/1375MHz.

The main feature of the card is its Vortex II cooler that gives users an ability to choose between higher airflow or lower noise by simply pulling those two fans in or out. The massive heatsink below the fans is connected to the GPU via four 8mm nickel-plated copper heatpipes. The new HD 7970 Vortex II will also feature a backplate that should help a bit with cooling and provide some structural stability for the PCB.

Unfortunately, the price is still unknown but we were told that the card should appear in retail/e-tail sometime next month.
