Okay, pictures first. On this page you can see the Radeon HD 7870 Joker Card edition from Club3D's Poker series, a graphics card with a nice 2 GB graphics memory, which is enough for modern games.
Included with all cards will be a manual a demo and driver CD, crossfire connector and well, the typical stuff really. Let's have a look at that:
We see a dark looking card from HIS. The 4.3 billion-transistor 28nm Tahiti LE based core is tied to a 2 GB memory (256-bit) -- which is plenty by any standard for a product in this range.
This Joker card is clocked at a 925 MHz core / 975 MHz Boost frequency and the GDDR5 memory runs at 6 Gbps (effective data rate as GDDR5 has a quad data-rate). You can already spot the big CoolStream cooler. A sufficient cooler, but we have some mixed feelings as temps reached 80 degrees C whilst being a bit of a noisy cooler.
Here we can see the backside, the card will fit pretty much any chassis. It's a custom design PCB with a blue color scheme. The card is long, due to an extended PCB but mostly due to the cooler. As a result you will need 26 CM of free space, that's a good 10 Inches.

Club3D Radeon HD 7850 Royal Queen review Club3D jumped the 7800 bandwagon as well with several models, and for this review we'll be looking at their Radeon HD 7850 Royal Queen edition which comes with 1 GB of graphics memory. The product comes default in many ways, except the cooler. Club3D uses a small PCB and pretty slim dual-slot cooler making the card very easy to install. The graphics card is equipped with one 6-pin PCIe power connector. As mentioned the card comes default/reference clocked at 860 MHz and the memory is clocked at a 4800 MHz reference as well.
Club3D Radeon HD 6870 X2 review We review the Club3D Radeon HD 6870 X2. A dual-GPU Barts based graphics card. AMD had nothing to do with this design, this is a custom design product. Admittedly we just love that stuff. So we'll head over into the review, we'll cover a thing or two about BARTS based processors, have a closer look at the Club3D Radeon HD 6870 X2.
