For our readers who don’t really know who Colorfire is, we can say that it is a subsidiary brand belonging to the well-known Chinese video card manufacturer Colorful. Colorfire is preparing to launch a new custom design of AMD’s Radeon HD 7870 graphics adapter.
The new card is called Colorfire Radeon HD 7870 Xstorm and is powered by a Pitcairn GPU that has a frequency of 1 GHz.
It comes with 1,280 shaders and 80 texture units all using GDDR 5 memory
running at 4800 MHZ effective speed.
Colorfire’s Radeon HD 7870 Xstorm comes complete with AMD
’s UVD3 video decoder, Eyefinity and ZeroCore technologies.
The cooling system consists of five nickel-plated heatpipes cooled by a very large single cooling fan.
The fan reportedly
has 12 centimeters in diameter, although it doesn’t seem so large by looking at the pictures.
Colorfire’s Radeon HD 7870 Xstorm has a 12-phase current supply, and no details on pricing are available yet.
