Following on for the release of their new Radeon R7 and R9 series cards, Club 3D have just revealed their latest entry to their GPU their family. The new card, the Club 3D Radeon R9 280 royalKing, has been designed to bridge the gap between the powerful yet affordable Radeon R9 270X and the more much more powerful, but obviously less affordable R9 280X. Hopefully finding that sweetspot of price Vs. performance that most consumers seek.
“Being a royalKing, the R9 280 is a proud new addition to our widely awarded and recognized PokerSeries.” Said Club 3D in a recent release.
The new card is fitted with a revised edition of the popular Tahiti PRO 2 GPU hardware, this gives the new R9 280 royalKing 1792 Stream Processors, 3072Mb of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5000MHz and a 384 bit memory bus. This puts it way ahead of the competition for this class of card and with a suggested end-user price of just $279 it’s also set to beat the competition in price too. Of course we’ll have to wait and see what performance figures a like, but it’s built around well-tried and tested hardware, so you can expect pretty decent performance from the Tahiti GPU cores.
“The PokerSeries was launched as a dedicated Club 3D sub brand targeted at the most demanding gamers who want the maximum FPS for their money. Since the launch, the cards in the PokerSeries earned numerous awards from international Tech Media for being among the fastest, quietest and coolest looking cards available in the market. The R9 280 royalKing comes with a backplate fitted to look good in any system!”
The PokerSeries cards certainly have proven a popular choice for Club 3D recently and they’re getting quite a nice reputation for themselves amongst PC gamers for their great value for money. With a factory overclock, custom black PCB, high-capacity dual fan CoolStream cooler, 2 x mini DisplayPort, HDMI and one Dual Link DVI-D output, the Club 3D Radeon R9 280 royalKing certainly sounds like a tempting option.
