Sapphire Releases AMD 7000 Series Video Cards
Sapphire Technologies through Ubertech has recently launched its line of AMD 7000 series of video cards by inviting bloggers over for lunch at Yaki-Mix yesterday.
Sapphire has released 8 (yes that’s a lot, and it covers just about the mid to high end range of video cards for the 7000 series) models of video cards. The following are:
- Sapphire HD7970 OC
- Sapphire HD7950 OC
- Sapphire HD7950 (using the reference design)
- Sapphire HD7870 OC
- Sapphire HD7850 OC
- Sapphire HD7770 OC
- Sapphire HD7750 OC
- Sapphire HD7750 Ultimate (fanless)
All of these sport the latest 28nm GCN Architecture chips, along with App Acceleration/Eyefinity/Crossfire/PowerPlay/PowerTune features from previous cards.
One of the newest feature is the ZeroCore Power Technology that promises a very low power consumption as the card is turned off if the monitor is powered down. Eyefinity gets an upgrade for improved hd and hd3d gaming, as well as a new display mode with universal bezel compensation.
But wait, there’s more. There was a short presentation on Roccat (pronounced as Rocket) gaming peripherals. Some of the products demoed were the Roccat Kone and Savu gaming mice, the Roccat Isku keyboard,the Kulo 7.1 USB headset and the Apuri USB docking station.
Crysis 2 was the demo game showcasing all of the products during the event.
