Sapphire Launches the Radeon HD 7790 SimCity Edition

In a similar vein to last month’s announcement that AMD would be bundling SimCity with its A8 and A10 APUs, Sapphire has launched a special edition of its Radeon HD 7790 that also includes a free copy of Maxis’ city simulator. Unfortunately, the Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 SimCity Special Edition appears to currently be a Japanese exclusive; it is not known if it will see a wider release.

The graphics card itself features reference clock speeds, 1 GB of GDDR5 memory and the same single-fan cooling system fitted to Sapphire’s other HD 7790-based graphics card, the Radeon HD 7790 OC 2 GB.

If this edition is also eligible for AMD’s “Never Settle Reloaded” bundle, which provides a free copy of Far Cry 3, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and a 20 percent off discount coupon for Medal of Honor: Warfighter, we may be in the unusual situation of having the value of a product’s extras coming close to the item’s actual retail price.

    Estix, are you referring to a GPU limitation or a game (SimCity) requirement in terms of rendering?

    So basically it's the generic card with SimCity. The game that I was playing last night and watched about 50 moving trucks circle around 4 intersections endlessly causing massive traffic jams and caused my city to burn to the ground.
    Why do you hate your consumer Sapphire?

    Does it require an always-on internet connection to render frames?

    I was making a joke, actually, but I was referring to what a Sim City-inspired GPU may have as DRM.

    The card itself will not function fully for the first week you install it.

    so... how much does a 100 MHz increase on clock speeds cost?
