Custom HD 6950 FleX Edition
Having provided details earlier, Sapphire today officialy announced its new Radeon HD 6950 FleX Edition graphics card. Featuring completely custom and non-reference PCB and cooler, the new HD 6950 is a part of Sapphire FleX lineup that makes using Eyefinity simple.

As far as specs go, the new card features 1408 Stream processors and works at 800MHz for the GPU and 5000MHz for 2GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. The backplate is filled with two DVI ports, two mini DisplayPort and one HDMI output. The story behind the FleX Edition is quite simple as it allows your to connect up to three monitors without going for those expensive active adapters or DisplayPort monitors. You can hook up two to available DVI ports where the third one can be connected to an HDMI port via the bundled adapter.

We couldn't say with certainty last week, but we can now confirm that Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 FleX Edition does indeed come with a dual BIOS switch, so there is at least a chance that you can unlock it. The card is yet to hit retail and the price remains a mystery, for now at least.
