AMD announced its Radeon HD 7790 mid-range graphics card, with which the company plans to fill a gap in its product-stack, between the Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition, and the Radeon HD 7850. Based on the brand new 28 nm "Bonaire" silicon, the HD 7790 features 896 stream processors based on the Graphics CoreNext architecture, dual-independent tessellation units, 56 TMUs, 16 ROPs, and a 128-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 1 GB of memory. The core is clocked at 1.00 GHz, and memory at 6.00 GHz, churning out a memory bandwidth of 96 GB/s.

With the HD 7790, AMD is introducing an updated dynamic clock adjustment technology, which works to give games more access to the set 1.00 GHz core clock speed, which working to reduce power draw further. The technology should make the current and future AMD Radeon chips as energy-efficient as NVIDIA's. The card draws power from a single 6-pin power connector, its TDP is rated at 85W. Display outputs should typically include one or two DVI connectors, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort. AMD is targeting a price-point of $149.99, its add-in board partners are free to launch custom-design products from day one.
