Thus, the device includes a graphics processor Tahiti, which is made at 28-nanometer process-based architecture GCN (Graphics Core Next), 2048 stream processors, 128 texture units, 32 raster operations unit, and 3 GB of GDDR5 memory 384-bit bus access standards. The reference frequency of the GPU and memory values increased from 925 and 5500 MHz (Radeon HD 7970) to 1000/1050 (standard / high frequency) and 6000 MHz, respectively. To remove heat from the components of the video card it uses dual-slot cooler turbine. This model comes with two additional power connectors: one 8-pin and one 6-pin. The maximum power consumption of the device is about 250 W, as in the case of Radeon HD 7970.
