Review: A graphics card to die for

 

XFX Radeon HD 7950 Black Edition is faster than any single GPU graphics card launched last year, faster than the HD 6970, and faster than GTX 580. XFX helped the card along by overclocking the GPU by 100MHz, which means that it runs at 900MHz. Gaming performance will not be an issue, although utilizing full potential of the card will require gaming at 1920x1080 and higher. Apart from the great performance, our today’s Black Edition looks great and the finishing touches are clear for all to see.

AMD’s Tahiti core packs good overclocking potential, which is obvious considering the number of overclocked cards, be they 7950 or 7970. XFX also offers HD 7970 Black Edition which runs at 1GHz. We easily overclocked the Radeon HD 7950 Black Edition’s GPU by additional 105MHz.

The HD 7950 Black Edition’s cooler is called Double Dissipation, which basically means it has two fans. XFX made a good BIOS at the last moment so the card runs quietly even under load. Temperatures are great, even though the card runs higher clock speeds. The card comes with 3GB of memory, just like on HD 7970 cards.

XFX Radeon HD 7950 Black Edition Double Dissipation will set you back about $499, which is some $50 lower than the suggested HD 7970 pricing or $50 more than the HD 7950 with reference clocks and lesser cooler.
