Club 3D HD7950 Royal King Review

Up Close

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.

Great review, looks an amazing card, however as you said in the video the red PCB is the deal breaker. But otherwise is a great card to look out for.

Would like to see how the 7970 performs.Quote

As always a fantastic review Tom! Nothing more to point at this card....that red PCB at this days..... Maybe they Could Also start doing green,blue and brown pcb´s for each model, so everyone can be happy with the best color scheme possible on the rig! You said everything!! A very well deserved gold award!Quote
