ASUS Matrix HD 7970 Platinum GHz Edition in the works

Posted on Wednesday, September 05 2012 @ 21:02:49 CEST by


ASUS is working on the Matrix HD 7970 Platinum GHz Edition, a new graphics card that seems to feature the same cooling solution as the old ASUS Matrix GTX 580 Platinum card. This new Radeon-based version comes with "Super Alloy Power" 20-phase power design, VGA Hotwire connectors for measuring the voltage of the GPU, Memory and PPL, and support for AMD Eyefinity6 with four DisplayPort and two DVI ports.

The Matrix HD7970 Platinum reportedly has a 1050MHz base clock, 1100MHz boost clock and 3GB GDDR5 clocked at 6600MHz. Pricing and availability is unknown.
Additionally, it has a very cool feature — the Matrix logo on the side is illuminated by multi-color LED’s — and those change accordingly to the usage of the card (there are five modes). Oh, did I mention it has a backplate?

Moving forward to the GPU — this card has Tahiti XT (aka XT2). It supports PowerTune Boost, so it comes with two clocks – 1050 MHz base and 1100 MHz for boost. You probably think that’s not that impressive, but it is, because this card out-of-the-box is just asking for even more overclocking. ASUS has already set the memory for you to 6600 MHz effective speed, so you should only focus on the core.
