Leading graphic card supplier PowerColor just held a product launch event for their HD 7000 series last May 23, 2012 at The Lounge in Tomas Morato, Quezon City. Bloggers and the media were invited for this event as well as gamers/fans that were selected from their official Facebook page.
Guests were welcomed by two large LCD TVs that are running Street Fighter IV while one unit has 5 LCD monitors mounted to show off Radeon’s latest Eyefinity 2.0 technology (which is also powered by a HD 6990 by the way) while running Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.
They also hosted a Street Fighter IV tournament for the visitors where the winner gets an HD 7770, and raffle giveaways of several HD 6570, HD 7770 and HD 7870 graphic cards to lucky gamers and bloggers. Aside from the tournament, there were free drinks to celebrate the launch.
A short presentation was demonstrated by AMD’s Sales Manager Sonny Sy and PowerColor’s Product Manager Peter Villarosa. Some of the new technologies featured on the HD 7000 series are the Eyefinity 2.0; where you can use 3 to 6 monitors simultaneously and has 3D support. Another is the 28nm technology where increase your graphic card’s performance and at the same time consumes less energy and last is the AMD App Acceleration, where it can you multiple programs and applications at the same time.
Also during the launch event, Team Mineski and Manila Aguilas; two of the competitive Filipino teams in the eSports where also present to witness the contract signing with PowerColor for their partnership.
