Photos - RV740 512MB
On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at high-res and then scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D 12 MegaPixel.
Right then, meet the RV740, what we think will be called Radeon HD 4750. This is an engineering sample, equipped with 512 MB GDDR5 128-bit memory.
There's not a lot we can tell PCB wise, other than... this would be the reference design :) I have no idea if the final cards will get a more standard reference design run of the mill cooler, or this lovely copper cooler, if I'm not mistaken that's a Zalman VF900-Cu VGA Cooler. Quite a sight for the eyes, very silent as well. As far as I am concerned, they can keep it on there, what a lovely product.
But do you see the thin white line just below the cooler on the PCB ? That is typically the outline for the reference coolers ...
Backside of the PCB. Product and BIOS numbers have been removed for identification purposes.
When we place the card into a perspective view, the one thing that catches the eye is the cooler. It works quite well actually. Pretty decent temperatures versus a fine noise level, but that remains to be a conclusion by itself with the final products. We stumble into two DVI connectors (HDCP capable). Both dual-link DVI, thus supporting high-resolution monitors.
We test and review the MSI Radeon HD 7790 OC edition, also known under SKU code R7790-1GD5-OC incl FCAT Frametimes. The new graphics card is intended to boost a little more performance into entry-level gaming.

We test and review the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7790 2GB OC edition, also known under SKU code GV-R7790OC-2GD. We benchmark the product incl FCAT Frametimes. The new graphics card is intended to boost a little more performance into entry-level gaming. The Gigabyte HD7790 OC 2GB clocks in at 1075 MHz on the boost engine, packed with totally silent custom cooling.
Radeon HD 7990 review
We review the new AMD Radeon HD 7990 including FCAT frametime measurements. The dual GPU product that you guys learned to know under codename Malta finally is released. AMD it doing it in style, two fully equipped Tahiti XT2 GPUs versus good yet silent cooling. In this review we'll look at the product, the architecture, the benchmarks, including frametime based FCAT measurements. Head on over towards our AMD Radeon HD 7990.
Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker review
We test and review the Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker, this is the much discussed 7870 card that in fact has a 7900 series GPU, the Tahiti LE. For a fair amount of money this series 7800 product now offers 7900 series performance. Armed with 2GB of graphics memory it hits a sweet spot gaming performance wise and to date it one of the more popular products in the mainstream segment. Let's check out the Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker.
