Sapphire launches Radeon HD 7950 Flex Edition
HD 7950 for up to three displays
Since most graphics cards on the market require the third monitor to be connected via DisplayPort, or an active DisplayPort adapter, Sapphire has launched a new graphics card that will be a part of its Flex series, allowing users to connect all three monitors via two DVI and HDMI-DVI ports, the HD 7950 Flex Edition.
The new Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Flex is based on AMD's Tahiti Pro GPU with a total of 1792 stream processors, or 28 GCN compute units and features 3GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 384-bit memory interface. Since it features Sapphire's custom Dual-X cooler, the new HD 7950 Flex graphics card ended up with a slight factory overclock set at 860MHz for the GPU and 1250MHz (5GHz effective) for memory.
The card features two DVI ports, HDMI and two mini-DisplayPort outputs with an ability to use both DVI and HDMI for multi-monitor setups.
The new Sapphire HD 7950 Flex is already listed in Europe with a €365,87 price tag, which is about €30 or so more expensive than a standard and reference cooled HD 7950.
