Review: Better cooling for GHz Edition and factory OC
the loss versus the GTX 680, AMD used its Radeon HD 7970 Gigaherz Edition to set some new performance records, but the speed increase brought about a noise increase as well. Club 3D is among the few AMD partners who took it upon themselves to fix what may be the HD 7970’s biggest downside – the overly loud fan. The new HD 7970 royalAce features Club 3D's CoolStream dual-slot cooler with two fans and three heatpipes that promises lower temperatures and lower noise when compared to the reference HD 7970 GHz Edition graphics card.
Based on AMD's HD 7970 GHz Edition, or Tahiti XT2 GPU with 2048 stream processors, the Club 3D HD 7970 royalAce has been set to work at 1050MHz for the base and 1100MHz for boost GPU clock with 3072MB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6000MHz and paired up with a 384-bit memory interface.
