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 Sapphire card, the Dual-X 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 cheaper 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 Sapphire 7790 Dual-X comes with a custom cooler cooler and a factory overclock that reaches over 1GHz. What’s particularly enticing is this Sapphire card also qualifies for the popular AMD promotional offer that tosses in an A+ gaming title in Bioshock Infinite worth $60 into the package. That sounds like an excellent deal, even if the performance isn’t terribly groundshaking as a more budget-oriented card.

Let’s take a closer look at the Sapphire 7790 Dual-X and see how it fares.
