Single-fan HD 7950


A while back we had a chance to see Sapphire's Radeon HD 7950 OC graphics card that will be cooled by a dual-fan cooler, but now some additional pictures have leaked online showing yet another, more cost-effective, Sapphire HD 7950 that will feature a single center placed fan.

According to the information, the new Sapphire HD 7950 card should end up working at AMD reference 800MHz GPU and 1250MHz (5GHz) memory clocks and feature what appears to be a cost effective blue PCB. As noted, the card features a single center placed fan and a rather modest (compared to those on the HD 7970 and some recently pictured non-reference HD 7950 cards) heatsink.

In addition to the pictures, Mydrivers.com site also released a couple of early benchmark figures of this card but, as noted, results should be taken with a grain of salt due to incomplete driver that should be optimized later.

You can check out the pictures as well as some benchmark figures over at Expreview.com.
