Club3D announces Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition

Although the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition has been officially launched by AMD, there has not been that many announcements from AMD's add-in-board (AIB) partners, and currently Club3D is the only partner that has officially announced such a card.

As we wrote earlier, AMD pulled of a press launch and Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition cards are not scheduled to appear in retail/e-tail until early next month. According to our info, most partners will be focusing on custom HD 7970 GHz Edition graphics cards rather than going with AMD's reference design that tends to be a bit too noisy. Sources are telling us that Club3D and Sapphire could end up as only partners with reference designed HD 7970 GHz Edition cards. 

As far as the Club3D's HD 7970 GHz Edition goes, it will hit retail/e-tail under CGHAX-7977SO model number and the only change is the Club3D's own sticker on top of the fan. The Tahiti XT2 chip is left to tick at reference 1000MHz with 1050MHz boost, and it feature 3GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with 384-bit memory interface and clocked at reference 6000MHz effective.

Unfortunately, Club3D did not announce any details regarding the price or the precise availability date but you can expect it to go for around US $499, depending on the region.
