Sapphire's card looks extremely powerful thanks to the large cooler and the backplate with its sporty stripe design.
The card requires two slots in your system.
Display connectivity options include two Mini DisplayPorts, one full-size HDMI port, and two dual-link DVI ports. You may use all outputs at the same time.
The GPU also includes an HDMI sound device. It is HDMI 1.4a compatible which includes HD audio and Blu-ray 3D movies support. The DisplayPort outputs are version 1.2, enabling the use of hubs and Multi-Stream Transport.
You may combine up to four HD 7970 cards from any vendor in a multi-GPU CrossFire configuration for higher frame rates or better image-quality settings.
