HIS working on HD 6950 1GB card

Written by Slobodan Simic

Custom cooler
Following in Sapphire's footsteps, it looks that HIS will be another partner that will be releasing a 1GB version of the Radeon HD 6950 card. AMD hasn't officially confirmed such a card, but for now it looks like that all partners will have one.

In addition to the less than original memory amount, the HIS Radeon HD 6950 1GB will also feature a custom cooler that has a center placed fan. Spec wise, the Radeon HD 6950 1GB will work at 800MHz for the GPU and 5000MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. The card still has 1408 stream processors and it looks like that the BIOS switch is gone from this version.

The card still features support for AMD's Eyefinity and CrossFireX and features two DVI, HDMI and two mini DisplayPort outputs. Unfortunately, the price or the precise availability date haven't been announced but we are pretty sure that AMD will get this card on the market just before the launch of the GTX 560 Ti.

Eww, no bios switch that can turn it in a 6970...well at least a better cooler.

Could be me but I think I am seeing a bios switch... On the top-right of the top Crossfire connector... not sure though if it's illusion (could be the cooler's plastic).

I'm glad I ordered my 6950 right away when the bios switch and all were still there :D

So long as the price/performance is great, this will be a winner. Though I prefer to fork over a few more $$$ for the 2GB version. Nice Cooler though...

Why don't they make it with IceQ4 cooler? It looks great. :]

No-bios switch, just the empty location.

I've not seen it on the ASUS DirectCU II either and Gigabyte also has some new cards coming out, and PowerColor LCS, maybe they will have it.

That switch made it a better deal, also a safer product, sad to see it go.

More garbage, I guess they gotta try and steal somebody's money!
