Club3D Radeon HD 7870 XT jokerCard review

Dave James at

I was rather disappointed to learn that it’s probably going to be late this year before we see proper Radeon HD 8000 series graphics cards from AMD, but the silver lining is that in the meantime we get incredibly fast, incredibly good value cards like this Club3D HD 7870 XT jokerCard.

AMD’s HD 7870 has been one of the stand-out cards of this generation since it dropped below the £200 price point. But this Club3D version is a very different kettle of fish altogether. It’s actually running the same Graphics Core Next GPU as the one that’s the beating heart of the HD 7900 series of cards. Yup, this is a HD 7870 with a chunky Tahiti chip humming away under that heatsink.

Club3D Radeon HD7990: Now this is what we call graphical overkill

Wanna see something cool? Course you do. This is the Club3D Radeon HD 7990. Ain’t she a beauty? This is Club3D’s answer to Nvidia’s GTX 690, and like the competition this is a dual-GPU card sporting the best GPUs of this generation in a frankly ludicrous configuration.

I mean, just look at it. That HD7990's fricking vast.
