“Never settle” marketing campaign ensures our customers that our product is an effort of long term dedication from engineering and software teams who’s key  motivation is innovation for the sake of bringing new experiences for the customer. Unlike competing product whose only appliance is 3D gaming, AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition has been designed from the start as the most powerful consumer class accelerator for General Purpose Computing .

4.3 Billion transistors chip build on cutting edge 28 nanometre technology working on 1.05 GHz frequency delivering total computing power of 4.3 TeraFLOPS, under 250W power envelope.

AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition with its future proof “GCN” architecture had revolutionised realm of graphic accelerators bringing their General Purpose Computing capabilities to the next level for the mass market.

AMD has a tradition of releasing highly competitive graphics processing units. In late 2010 AMD changed the graphics product market by releasing two highly competitive single GPU graphics product families:  AMD Radeon™ HD 6800 and AMD Radeon™ HD 6900 Series graphics. Building upon the success of these products, and the huge success of the  recently released AMD Radeon™  HD 7000 Series, AMD is proud to present its newest graphics card the AMD Radeon™ HD 7970 GHz Edition.
