The 15-pin VGA connector is common to most monitors and high definition television. You can connect your LCD or CRT monitor / TV with D-sub VGA connector.
HDMI (with 3D)
Support for Deep Color, 7.1 High Bitrate Audio, and 3D Stereoscopic, ensuring the highest quality Blu-ray and video experience possible from your PC.
Supports Digital monitors up to 1920x1200 resolution.
AMD Stream Technology
Accelerate the most demanding applications with AMD Stream technology and do more with your PC. AMD Stream Technology allows you to use the teraflops of compute power locked up in your graphics processer on tasks other than traditional graphics such as video encoding, at which the graphics processor is many, many times faster than using the CPU alone.
AMD Avivo HD (DVD/HD-DVD/Blu-ray Playback)
Watch the hottest Blu-ray movies or other HD content at full 1080p display resolution and beyond and enjoy a more feature rich experience with enhanced Unified Video Decoder(UVD)
AMD CrossFireX™ Multi-GPU Technology
Triple or Quadruple gaming power with AMD CrossFireX™ Multi-GPU Technology.AMD CrossFireX technology supports up to four graphics cards to be used in a single system.
AMD HD3D Technology
Enjoy the most immersive experience possible with full support for High Definition Stereoscopic 3D, a technique that presents 2D images (movies, games, photos) in a format that creates the illusion of three-dimensional depth when using compatible 3D displays / glasses / software.
28 nm GCN (Graphic Core Next) Architecture
The new 28nm GCN Architecture’s more efficient process technology puts more transistors in less space, enabling a dramatic increase in processing power
PCI Express 3.0
PCI-Express 3.0 delivers double the bandwidth per lane of PCIe Gen 2 for faster GPU (GPU communication-up to 16GB/sec in each direction), maximizing the performance from your GPU when paired with the latest platforms.
The tessellation performance on AMD Radeon R7/ R9 series is up to 2X faster than the previous generation, and DirectCompute performance is also faster to accelerate advanced post-processing, filtering, and anti-aliasing techniques. Direct X11 games has never looked this good.
OpenGL 4.3 improves the GPU efficiency by improving the shader process operation and capturing GPU tessellated geometry. The process of modifying an arbitrary subset of compress texture is also simplified. The memory management in handling shaders is more efficient as well.
Properly enabled games will reach new heights of performance by speaking the language of Graphics Core Next architecture.
AMD Catalyst Control Center™
The AMD Catalyst Control Center™ software application gives you complete control over the performance and visual quality of your SAPPHIRE AMD Radeon™ based graphics card allowing for the best experience on your PC.
Dolby® TrueHD and DTSHD Master Audio™ Support
Support for copy protected, high bandwidth, 7.1 channel surround sound over HDMI. Get a fully immersive, high definition audio experience with the latest Blu-ray movies. (Requires a DVI to HDMI dongle on some models, an HD capable monitor and a Blu-ray drive)
Supports advanced AA (Anti-aliasing) features to maximise your enjoyment of high definition gaming.
AMD PowerTune™ Technology
AMD PowerTune is a breakthrough technology that sets an entirely new direction for maximum performance at TDP. It allows the GPU to be designed with higher engine clock speeds which can be applied on the broad set of applications that have thermal headroom.
TriXX helps users to get the optimum performance from compatible SAPPHIRE graphics cards in any application by allowing them to monitor, tune and save different settings of key parameters for the card.
Microsoft Office 2010
Take advantage of improved picture and media editing capabilities in Office 2010 as well as edit and share your content in real time.
See more, and get more done. Enhanced productivity with accelerated GPU processing for Office applications.
AMD App Acceleration
AMD App Acceleration is a set of technologies designed to improve video quality and enhance application performance. Full enablement of some features requires support for OpenCL, DirectComputer or DirectX Video Acceleration (DXVA).
AMD PowerPlay with ZeroCore Power Technology
AMD PowerPlay is a power management technology in response to the GPU loading, AMD PowerPlay automatically manages the power consumption.
AMD ZeroCore Power technology allows your AMD Radeon™ GPU to consume virtually no power when in idle state5. When used with AMD CrossFire™ technology, it shuts down additional GPUs when they’re not in use.
AMD HD Media Accelerator
AMD HD Media Accelerator has been designed to help optimize and dramatically improve video playback on your computer by taking advantage of hardware video acceleration from your AMD Radeon GPU. With full 3D stereoscopic decode you can enjoy it all in 3D. AMD HD Media Accelerator speeds up the decode of one 1080p and one 1080i HD video streams simultaneously by hardware, and the new hardware encodes/transcoder processes your media content faster than ever!
Cutting-edge Quad HD display support (4K Support)
The display resolution on AMD Radeon HD7000 series is quadrupled to the resolution of 4KX2K( 4096X2160 ) from the outputs of DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI.
Windows® 8/8.1 support
WHQL (Windows Hardware Quality Labs) Certified drivers and logos are available for SAPPHIRE cards ensuring compatibility and reliability with Microsoft Windows 8/8.1.
