Club 3D Launches '14Series Graphics Cards

Back in march 2013 Club 3D launched the '13Series graphics cards with the introduction of the Radeon HD 7790 '13Series. The '13Series were conceived as an addition to the existing PokerSeries gaming cards. These selected cards came in a simple white box and were stripped from any accessories and game bundles to enable a more aggressive price tag. The '13Series cards were mainly targeted at system integrators but proved to be an instant success with consumers too. Many end-users who have been looking for an upgrade for their existing card or to add a second card to their system for a multi GPU set-up saw the advantage of this 'light' retail package.

In some of the markets where Club 3D sells its products the white label '13Series proved to be even more popular than our black label PokerSeries.
