We reported here about ASUS’s plans to release an AMD-powered Matrix video card and today we’ve got some new impressive details for the gaming enthusiasts. The new card special buttons to control the voltages and set the maximum fan speed.
ASUS’ Matrix AMD Radeon HD 7970 Platinum video card is clearly targeted at overclockers so a special Safe Mode button is also present for situations where an overclocking attempt is unsuccessful or a BIOS flash goes bad.
The GPU is reportedly clocked at an amazing 1070 MHz and this is the default frequency as the card is a GHz Edition so there will also be a Boost option that will likely clock the chip beyond 1150 MHz.
A very nice surprise is the GDDR5 memory that runs at 6600 MHz effective frequency directly out of the box.
The card features a 16-phase GPU power circuit plus two more additional power phases for the memory and the PLL.
There is no official information on pricing yet, but readers should know that this is a certified AMD Eyefinity video card.
