Introduction

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 PowerColor card, the Turbo Duo specifically, and it’s positioned in the market as a more budget-oriented choice.

The the recent release of the GTX 650 Ti Boost, It seems 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 PowerColor 7790 Turbo Duo comes with a custom cooler cooler and a factory overclock that reaches over 1GHz. What’s particularly enticing is this PowerColor card also qualifies for the popular AMD promotional offer that tosses in an A+ gaming title in Bioshock Infinite into the package.

Looks like a great deal, so let’s take a closer look at the PowerColor 7790 Turbo Duo and see how it fares.
