More Radeon HD 7950 benchmarks surface

Still only 3DMark 11


Following yesterday's GPU-Z screenshot and 3DMark 11 performance leak from Donanimhaber.com, Mydrivers has come up with a few additional HD 7950 benchmarks, unfortunately still only focused on 3DMark 11.

Unlike the one seen yesterday, the Radeon HD 7950 card at Mydrivers site is set at reference 800MHz for the GPU and 1250MHz for 3GB of GDDR5 memory as well as overclocked to 1030MHz for the GPU. The results of the card were compared to GTX 570, Radeon HD 6970 as well as Radeon HD 7970 cards.

As we always note, 3DMark 11 is a decent benchmark but we always like to see a card running some game titles before we draw any conclusion. The preview results in Performance 3DMark 11 show that the HD 7950 will end up competitive to both GTX 570 and probably even GTX 580 and have a decent overclocking potential to be as fast as the reference HD 7970.

Of course, we are about a week away from the official launch date set at 31st of January when we will probably see some of the first benchmarks and know for sure.

You can check out the results here.
