AMD Radeon HD 7970 review -
Connectivity wise the output connectors will vary per brand. But on the reference card we see four connectors supporting all high-resolution monitors. We get two display port connectors (mini), HDMI and a DVI connector. The cards will come with monitor connector dongles and adapters.
What I like about the placement of the connectors is the massive mesh on top of them, it allows the card to exhaust hot air really well. So there's won't be much residual heat going inside the chassis.
The cooler itself had a small overhaul, it has a wider fan with new designed blades, the housing is much more sturdy and the actual heatsink has gotten an update as well. AMD now uses a 6th generation vapour chamber cooler.
Overall the card remains cooled within very acceptable limits and it isn't too noisy either. But you'll learn all about that over the next few pages.
We review the new AMD Radeon R9 270, not to be confused with the 270X model ! The non X models are bound to offer value for money as really it these puppies are Pitcairn in disguise (Radeon HD 7870)....
