LTD, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, is pleased to introduce the latest GV-R797D5-3GD-B and GV-R797OC-3GD graphics cards. The GV-R797D5-3GD-B and GV-R797OC-3GD are built with the highly anticipated AMD RadeonTM HD 7970 GPU, which utilizes the latest 4.3 billon transistors on 28nm fabrication process and GDDR5 memory. AMD RadeonTM HD 7970 GPU supports dual advanced programmable tessellation engines, Microsoft DirectX® 11, AMD Eyefinity 2.0 technology, AMD PowerTune technology, AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) technology, and AMD HD3D technology. With these features, AMD RadeonTM HD 7970 series is proved to provide gamers an impressive experience with non-compromise performance and flawless graphics quality. Furthermore, GV-R797OC-3GD is equipped with GIGABYTE’s latest patent-pending "Triangle Cool" Technology plus the exclusive WINDFORCE™ 3X Cooling Technology. GV-R797OC-3GD is designed especially for gamers to achieve an unbeatable gaming performance and to meet a higher standard more easily.
WINDFORCE™ 3X Anti-Turbulence Cooling – Super Cool! Super Quiet!
GV-R797OC-3GD features WINDFORCE™3X Cooling Technology, GIGABYTE’s innovative new generation triple-fan solution with patented anti-turbulence inclined fans and three 8mm pure copper heat pipes. The combination of anti-turbulence inclined fans and pure copper heat pipes helps to reduce excessive heat and minimizes the flow of turbulence between fans. For GV-R797OC-3GD, GIGABYTE creates the first unique "Triangle Cool" Technology (patent pending) to enhance the speed of heat dissipation.
"Triangle Cool" Technology
Different from traditional linear heat transfer solution, GV-R797OC-3GD is equipped with GIGABYTE’s latest exclusive "Triangle Cool" Technology to reach a better cooling performance. The latest patent pending technology combines fin with clip module in a special triangle shape. With the original anti-turbulence structure plus the new triangle cooling design, it enhances the efficiency of heat dissipation dramatically by minimizing the flow of turbulence between fans. Therefore, the "Triangle Cool" Technology enables GV-R797OC-3GD to provide a more efficient air flow for the cooling system. It’s proved that the temperature of GV-R797OC-3GD is reduced by 15% compared to stock fan by "Triangle Cool" Technology design.
Eyefinity 2.0 Technology
GIGABYTE GV-R797D5-3GD-B and GV-R797OC-3GD feature AMD’s DirectX® 11 technology, universal bezel compensation and brand new display configurations. With 3072MB GDDR5 hi-speed video memory, GV-R797D5-3GD-B and GV-R797OC-3GD offer twice the data per pin of GDDR3 memory at the same clock speeds. Benefiting from AMD Eyefinity 2.0 Technology, gamers are able to experience multi-monitor support for immersive entertainment and enhanced productivity from a single graphics card solution.
AMD HD3D Technology
To respond to every power gamer for a no-compromise HD gaming experience, GIGABYTE GV-R797D5-3GD-B and GV-R797OC-3GD are the first to offer full support for Microsoft DirectX® 11 for life-like realistic and stunning 3D gaming effects.
