Calls it HD 7950 OC 950MHz Edition


Sapphire has added yet another graphics card to its HD 7900 series lineup, the HD 7950 OC 3GB GDDR5 950MHz Edition.

Featuring Sapphire's well known Dual-X dual slot, dual fan cooler, the new Sapphire HD 7950 OC 950MHz Edition works, as the name suggests, at 950MHz for the GPU and feature 3GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1250MHz (5.0GHz effective) and paired up wiht a 384-bit memory interface.

The previously released HD 7950 OC Edition featured a cost effective blue PCB and had a 50MHz lower factory overclock, thus the new one could possibly end up to be a much better overclocker. For comparison sake, the reference HD 7950 works at 810MHz for the GPU while the same 3GB of memory was already clocked at 5000MHz.

The new Sapphire HD 7950 OC 950MHz Edition is already listed (and even available at certain shops) for as low as €380,36 (available at €387,72) or about €20 premium over the previously released HD 7950 OC 900MHz Edition.

You can check out some of those listings here.
