1GB HD 6950 ships in Europe

Written by


€230
European retailers have started shipping Sapphire’s new HD 6950 cards with 1GB of memory.

The new board runs at stock clocks and the only apparent difference from reference cards is the frame buffer size.

However, the resulting price drop is not as significant as one might hope. The cheapest listing currently stands at €230, while reference cards with 2GB of memory can be bought for just €10 to €20 more.

Mind you, this is the first 1GB card to appear in stores and prices could still go down by a few euro once other vendors start shipping similar products.

You can get it here.

If there's a 1GB 6970 with the same controller and overall layout it should be possible. Maybe later on when they will release such cards.

But as a note, if people just want to flash them to 6970, they should give PowerColor a try that does that from factory.

These cards are available for an exceptionally well priced $259 in the U.S. AMD's on the cusp of OC 6870 releases, which indicates there will be a very substantial cut for 68xx cards allowing space for these lower half RAM high-end cards. With the enthusiast range already quite cost competitive (not to mention the potential of 6950->6970 conversions :o ) we'll see Antilles bridge the great divide of the 580 & 6970 & forcing a best-case scenario consumer Nvidia adjustment. With the already implemented XFire scaling, & that we still are to yet enjoy the 1st of several months of superstandard 4VLIW optimizations, we're about to witness the most competitive price-point battle yet. woot.
