Close up on the Radeon 7000 series

With the world + dog waiting to see what price these cards will be in the UK stores, KitGuru manages to fire up the VideoScope and give the new cards a once over. Where will they fit in and what can regular gamers expect?

GPU manufacturers must be desperate for the present generation of consoles to fade away and die. With so much money available to publishers in the console space, there’s a reduced drive to create games that need much more than the weak-arsed specs found in a PlayStation 3 or XBox 360.

Still, we know that a quantum leap will happen at some stage – at which point we’ll all be reaching for ‘more’.

If you’d like to digest the 7000 series launch in no time at all, we have the video for you:-

KitGuru says: It’s a monster, to be sure. Will be interesting to see what AMD’s partners do in terms of cooling solution. Will all of the first round cards come with stock cooling – or will someone manage to break the mould and hit us with something cooler and quieter?
