The Radeon HD 7870 XT is a performance graphics card by AMD, launched in November 2012. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the Tahiti graphics processor, in its Tahiti LE variant, the card supports DirectX 11.2. The Tahiti graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 352 mm² and 4,313 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked Radeon HD 7970, which uses the same GPU but has all 2048 shaders enabled, AMD has disabled some shading units on the Radeon HD 7870 XT to reach the product's target shader count. It features 1536 shading units, 96 texture mapping units and 32 ROPs. AMD has placed 2,048 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 925 MHz, which can be boosted up to 975 MHz, memory is running at 1500 MHz.
We recommend the AMD Radeon HD 7870 XT for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1920x1080.
