Club 3D 7950 Royal King Review
Published: 20th November 2012 | Source: Club 3D | Price: |
We loved the packaging for the Royal Queen and the Royal King continues the trend of stylish looking, sturdy packaging.
With so many cards these days, especially AMD ones, having an array of DisplayPorts, but DP monitors still not being as pervasive as their DVI or HDMI cousins it's nice to see that Club3D have included plenty of adaptors to ensure you can connect easily.
Whereas the Royal Queen had a single fan as part of the CoolStream cooler, the Royal King ups the ante (ha) with two PWM fans alongside a serious set of heatpipes and fins.
As the second most powerful single GPU card in the AMD range the Royal King requires two 6pin power inputs.
The red PCB is a bit divisive. On the one hand it is almost retro, reminding us of the 9800Pro and other outstanding early Radeon cards, and certainly will match any red and black system. However, it does rather dominate proceedings and if you have chosen any colour combination other than the near-default red and black it will stand out like a Belieber at a Slayer concert.
