Written by Slobodan Simic

Core clock set at 800MHz


Although we are still over a week away from the official launch date, the guys from Donanimhaber.com scored some details regarding the upcoming Tahiti based Radeon HD 7950 card.

According to their info, the card should be running at 800MHz for the GPU and 1,250MHz (5GHz) for 3GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with the same 384-bit memory interface. In case you missed it, the Radeon HD 7950 packs 1792 stream processors, or 28 GCN compute units as AMD calls them these days.

In addition to the reference specs, Donanimhaber.com also scored 3DMark 11 Extreme and CPU-Z screenshot of the Radeon HD 7950 card running on 880MHz for the core. According to results, the card scores 2385 marks and still ends up faster than the GTX 580. As always, 3DMark 11 doesn't always reflect the actual real-world performance so we'll have to wait a bit longer to see how well it performs in various game titles.

As you already know, it looks like AMD gave a green light to its partners for non-reference cards since day one and there will be a lot of custom cooled and factory overclocked cards once it launched on January 31st. According to what we know, the price is still set at US $449.99.
