Club 3D HD7970 Royal Ace with Crossfire Review

Regular readers of OC3D, and if you aren't a regular then you should be, will recognise the Club 3D packaging and card style immediately. The box is very classy and we like the combination of matte black with the simple A logo. For a top end GPU the accessories are bland and identical to any other graphics card. Although most free games are ones everyone already has, it doesn't hurt to include one.
The Coolsteam cooler is one of the best looking coolers around, with the black casing housing two PWM fans and the always pretty copper heatpipes. Because of the way that graphics cards fit into motherboards we see far more of the PCB than the cooler, so it's also nice to see that Club 3D have given the Royal Ace a black PCB.
Inputs and outputs are standard for a HD7970, with a 8+6 pin power input, and DVI, HDMI and two mini-DisplayPort outputs.
Everyone likes the look of two cards, and we're no different. No matter how good the performance of twin-GPU cards is, there is no replacement for having two cards filling your case up.
