Club 3D 7950 Royal King Review

Introduction and Technical Specifications

Club 3D HD7950 Royal King Review  

Introduction

We have the potential for a perfect storm here. Back when the HD79x0 cards were released we discovered that although the HD7970 was the powerhouse we expected it to be, the HD7950 was actually the sensible choice. At stock it was average but it took to the overclock so well it was easily a match for the HD7970 without the hefty price-tag. So the chip beating at the heart of the Club3D Royal King is one we already like a lot. 

Club3D themselves came from out of the blue to amaze us with the HD7850 Royal Queen. Of course we were aware of them but it had been so long since we'd reviewed one of their cards that the Royal Queen stunned us with how well it performed, especially being able to be overclocked within an inch of its life.

So that takes us to today's review. We have a company who've recently left us wide-eyed with the quality of their Poker range of cards, bringing us one based upon one of the best overclocking GPUs around.

Is the Club3D HD7950 Royal King a cool as you like BB King or a Stephen King horror show?

Technical Specifications

The Royal King HD7950 comes with a decent overclock when compared to the reference HD7950, but nothing particularly amazing out of the box. Otherwise it's a spitting image of the Royal Queen we reviewed recently, with the Coolstream cooler on an otherwise standard board.
