Palit Claims Most Powerful Video Card

Need some heavy-duty graphics power for that insane system you are thinking of building? Palit is aiming to deliver the goods with its new Revolution 700 Deluxe – just make sure you plan around it, cause it’s a big’un.

The new Revolution 700 Deluxe effectively puts Palit in the kings throne of fast graphics – advertising it as the World’s Most Powerful Graphics Card, it is the first custom designed video card based on AMD/ATI’s HD 4870 X2. The card sports dual GPUs already over-clocked from the factory to 750 MHz, comes with 2GB of GDDR5 memory running at 3,800 MHz – effectively delivering 2.4 teraFLOPS of graphics power using 1,600 stream processors.

Other things to note about the Revolution 700 Deluxe is that it is the first factory over-clocked HD 4870 X2 solution to hit the market. And to add to its big specifications, the physical size of the card is also very big – to heck with dual-slot cards, this sucker takes triple! That means, depending on how you plan to build your system, you might have to build it around the card – make sure you got room and adequate air flow space for this one.

Additionally, the new card supports DisplayPort, HDMI, Dual-Link DVI, and D-Sub (VGA). All these interconnect options give the user flexibility over what type of display they would like to use without having to fiddle with adapters.

Palit’s features are for the Revolution 700 Deluxe are as follows:

Ultra-Threaded Shared Engine – Support for Microsoft DirectX 10.1 Shader Model 4.1 programmable vertex and pixel shaders in hardware.

TeraScale Graphics Engine – The powerful new TeraScale graphics engine features deliver high resolutions and fast frame rates.

Enhanced Anti-Aliasing & Anisotropic Filtering – High performance anisotropic filtering and 24x custom filter anti-aliasing (CFAA) smooth jagged edges and create true-to-life graphics, for everything from grass to facial features.

CrossFireX Technology – Upgrade to even greater 3D performance quickly and easily thanks to plug-and-play ATI CrossFireX technology with up to quad-GPU support.

PCI Express 2.0 Support – Designed to run perfectly with the new PCI Express 2.0 bus architecture. PCI Express 2.0 products are fully backwards compatible with existing PCI Express motherboards for the broadest support.

Power to Spare – This GPU has the brute processing power needed for physics, artificial intelligence, stream computing and ray tracing calculations.

ATI PowerPlay Technology – ATI PowerPlay Technology delivers high performance when needed and conserves power when the demand on the graphics processor is low.

Avivo HD Video – Fully integrated HD audio capabilities and supports playback of multi-channel (5.1) audio-streams. Avivo HD enables a one-cable HDMI connectivity solution to high definition home theaters.

Dual-Link DVI Support – Able to drive the industry’s largest and highest resolution flat-panel displays up to 2560 x 1600

    wow, this is what i call a kick ass card. not bad at all.
  • afrobacon
    id love to see some benchmarks on this; then i remember that tom's seems to refuse benchmarking the 4870x2 in general. maybe we'll see some after nvidia's new line comes out =/
  • eklipz330
    so its basically an overclocked 4870x2... what makes is theirs exactly? BUT i do think its a fantastic idea triple slotting dual gpu cards, it'll keep alotta morons from crossfiring them...

    Confused much?,1992.html

    Is the core really overclocked? I may be completely wrong but i thought the standard core clock on the 4870X2 was 750 MHZ. If that's the case than only the RAM is overclocked. Am i missing something here?

    This article is just wrong. Looked at the Palit website, it does ship at 750MHz, which is stock speed, so this isn't the most powerful video card. Supposedly, what it offers is overclocking potential
  • Duncan NZ
    But the memory is overclocked I think

    Some reason this card makes me laugh inside. Id like to see it benched against normal 4870x2. Looks like a fancy cooling solution to me.

    How is this the first overclocked 750 to hit the market? There was a 780mhz core clock one in the first week it was launched. This article seems pretty inaccurate.

    No S-vid out(for those times I want SD video on my SD TV). BOOOOOOOO!!!!
