AMD’s current 7000 generation cards have matured rather nicely for the most part, and now we’re looking at another Radeon HD 7790. This one is a Diamond card, and it’s positioned in the market as a more budget-oriented choice.
With the release of the GTX 650 Ti Boost not too long ago, it appears AMD has this card straddling the vanilla GTX 650 Ti and the Boost models, with a price range in the $150 bracket, targeted at mainstream consumers who want some moderate gaming without breaking the bank.
The Diamond Radeon 7790 comes with a shorter PCB design, custom cooler and a strong factory overclock that reaches well over 1GHz. What’s particularly enticing is this Diamond card also qualifies for the popular AMD promotional offer that tosses in three A+ gaming titles into the package for some outstanding bonus value.
Looks like a great deal, so let’s take a closer look at the Diamond Radeon HD 7790 and see how it fares.
