|Black Edition Overclocked
This card features XFX’s unique Overclock GPU core at 1000 MHz which is 75 MHz more than the base models. Push your gaming experience to the max.
Exclusive XFX Black Edition selection process to identify the top one percent of GPUs capable of reaching maximum overclock speeds. Unlike factory overclock and maximum overclock, which only increases wattage to increase clock speeds, our high-quality Duratec components allows users to do the same, but keep the overall card wattage the same as a standard card by lowering overall wattage loss.
|Duratec Professional Grade Components
Duratec Professional Grade technology represents XFX’s high standard for component quality. Graphics cards featuring Duratec standards offer high quality components such as 2oz Copper PCB, Solid Polymer Capacitors, Ferrite Core Chokes, IP-5X Certified Dust Free Fans and XFX’s exclusive bracket design for greater airflow.
|Double Dissipation Edition
The XFX Double Dissipation Cooling solution allows for superior cooling whilst actually producing less noise than reference designs. Dual fans, whether over heat-pipes or a HydroCell, triples air flow decreasing processor temperature by 7°C and noise by 13dB.
|Ghost Thermal Technology
Full enclosed thermal covers often trap heat inside of the card and doesn't allow for airflow to exhaust out of the sides, causing a bottleneck effect at the bracket exhaust. Ghost Thermal Design is a floating cover that allows air to travel freely as it cools the PCB and components directly.
|Hydrocell Thermal Solution
HydroCell Technology is based on the same principles as heat-pipe technology. A liquid coolant is vaporized by a hot surface with the resulting vapor condensing on a cold surface, which recirculates back to the hot surface. The recirculation process is controlled by a wick system. The coolant is water, but because the chamber is evacuated to a very low pressure, the Hydro Transport process of vaporization occurs at a much lower temperature than the normal boiling point. The complex wick arrangement inside the module controls the flow of water and water vapor so that the system can be used in any orientation.
XFX Fans are designed to use linear fan speed ramping controls so that fan speeds and temperatures are optimized to reduce excess noise.
XFX SecureTray solution replaces traditional X-Grip mounting solutions which could cause delimitation (separation of the GPU from the PCB) due to heavier heatsinks.
|AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) Technology
Available on select, high-performance AMD Radeon HD 7000 Series graphics products, the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture is a radically new approach to the design of a consumer GPU. Most importantly, it is the world's first 28nm GPU architecture, which enables AMD to fit up to 4.3 billion transistors-the most basic building blocks of a GPU-into approximately the same space once needed to fit 2.6 billion. Increasing transistor density by greater than 60% is more than just a feat of engineering-it's responsible for the world's most powerful and advanced GPU. Designed to push not only the boundaries of DirectX 11 gaming, the GCN Architecture is also AMD's first design specifically engineered for general computing. Equipped with up to 32 compute units (2048 stream processors), each containing a scalar coprocessor, AMD's 28nm GPUs are more than capable of handling workloads-and programming languages-traditionally exclusive to the processor. Coupled with the dramatic rise of GPU-aware programming languages like C++ AMP and OpenCL, the GCN Architecture is truly the right architecture for the right time.
|AMD ZeroCore Power Technology
AMD ZeroCore Power Technology leverages AMD's leadership in notebook power efficiency to grant our desktop GPUs the ability to power down when your monitor is off, also known as the "long idle state." This is great for those times when you've stepped away from your PC to take a call, watch TV, or pop down to the store. Furthermore, AMD ZeroCore Power allows additional GPUs in an AMD CrossFire technology configuration to shut off when they're not in use-even the fan stops spinning! An AMD-exclusive technology, AMD ZeroCore Power ensures that unused or idle GPUs are as efficient as possible. Even the most hardcore gamer with an AMD CrossFire multi-gpu configuration benefits from AMD ZeroCore Power. Unused or idle GPUs are shut down until needed to conserve power.
|AMD HD3D Technology
AMD HD3D Technology is supported by an advanced and open ecosystem that, in conjunction with specific AMD hardware and software technologies, enables 3D display capabilities for many PC applications and experiences. Your PC has evolved, offering unprecedented amount of games, photos and movies for you to play, watch, design, create, share and download in 3D.

|AMD CrossFireX Multi-GPU Technology
AMD CrossFireX technology is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform. Unlocking game-dominating power, AMD CrossFireX harnesses the power of two or more discrete graphics cards working in parallel to dramatically improve gaming performance.1 With AMD CrossFireX-certified AMD Radeon HD graphics cards ready for practically every budget and the flexibility to combine two, three or four GPUs, AMD CrossFireX is the perfect multi-GPU solution for those who demand the best
|AMD PowerPlay Technology
AMD PowerPlay technology is designed to enable power saving profiles that help reduce power consumption when the GPU is idle or in minimal use in comparison to previous AMD products. This dynamic power management enables the GPU to automatically adjust power between low, medium and high states for a tremendous power efficiency advantage. For example, when receiving and composing emails little demand is on the GPU and it runs in a low state, whereas when gaming, there is high demand on the graphics engine and the GPU runs in a high state.
|AMD PowerTune Technology
AMD PowerTune technology helps deliver higher performance that is optimized to the thermal limits of the GPU by dynamically adjusting the clock during runtime based on an internally calculated GPU power assessment. AMD PowerTune technology also improves the mechanism to deal with applications that would otherwise exceed the GPU?s TDP. By dynamically managing the engine clock speeds based on calculations which determine the proximity of the GPU to its TDP limit, AMD PowerTune allows for the GPU to run at higher nominal clock speeds in the high state than otherwise possible
The AMD Catalyst Control center has been designed from the ground up to give you a stable, reliable experience and also allow you to control every aspect of your GPU quickly and easily. Quickly and easily add and configure additional displays to your GPU. Make your games look better and run faster. Enhance the quality of playback of your movies and online video content.

Recently Upgraded from a gtx 560ti (twin frozr) to this card. and what can i say. this card is a beast it looks very nice aswell. so far i have only played far cry 3 on very high settings and i get 75 fps most of the time. also the card reaches 70 degress after about 10 hours of gameplay witch i believe is pretty good. this is also the first amd card i have ever brought. as i have also had nvidia. but i am loving this card atm and i would like to give 5 stars to novatech for their constant great service :)

I have a pair of these, and as you can imagine gaming and benchmarking performance is epic. There are however a couple of things to think about, firstly they are quite loud, also they dump a lot of heat inside the case. Of course this is made more noticeable by the fact I'm running a pair in crossfire. However even at idle they are the only thing I can hear right now as I type... Like sitting next to a desk fan on half speed.

This is a very nice graphics card, it performs extremely well in games and I would recommend it to any serious gamer.XFX has done a good job with the cooling, my card runs at 36 degrees idle and 75 degrees full load. Overall this is a fantastic product and deserves the 5 stars I am giving it. Novatech's delivery and customer service are great, i forgot to tick the box for the free games but a quick phone call fixed this and I got the codes in the post a few days later.I will definitely buy from Novatech again and will recommend them to anyone looking to buy something for their computer!

Very nice card, and the XFX value-add is rather good with a product registration linked to details and driver download areas that are easy to access. The card itself drives the screen with ease - WoW is shown in true glory to the point of revealing many production issues, and yet stay nearly silent. I have yet to try it for CGI/rendering, but don't think it will struggle. Would recommend it as the ultimate gamer's card.
