Diamond HD7790 Graphics Card

Conclusion

The HD7790 itself has proven to be a very consistent and dependable card as we have received many of them and they all test within a very close percent of one another.

The Diamond model we got today showed small variances and performance overall that nudged ahead of the others, although that difference is slight. The performance from card to card in most cases is within a single FPS difference and the fact that they all shipped with the same clock speed explains that as they all are basically very similar functional parts. 

The cooler for the Diamond model could definitely be better as it is bested by a decent margin from the other cards offerings which means less in chassis thermal dump and also more possible headroom should a program with a higher overclock limit come out. It is worth noting that the card even though it ran a bit warmer on overclock still was just as stable as the other models tested.

The Diamond card places itself right in the flurry with most models at the $149.99 price point and it sits there well as it matches and even ever so slightly bests the competition in some tests.

Diamond made one simple and stable card able to overclock to the limit with full stability offering a great HD gaming experience!
