Today we are taking a look at a brand new video card from Sapphire. We have been hearing about the Radeon 7790 over the past few weeks and earlier this year AMD said we would see an HD 8000 series towards the end of the year and they would be refreshing their HD 7000 lineup with new chips. The HD 7790 is the first card that is part of this refresh, based on the brand new “Bonaire” 28nm graphics processor. The Bonaire graphics processor is based off of AMD’s graphics core next (GCN) architecture and features 896 stream processors. We are looking at Sapphire’s version, which is the HD 7790 OC with Dual-X. The Dual-X is for Sapphire’s own unique cooling system on the card. This card features a 1075MHz core clock, 1GB of GDDR5 memory and has dual DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort connections. This card is setup to compete directly with Nvidia’s GTX 650 Ti.
