Sapphire rolls out new HD 7950 Vapor-X OC

New BIOS with Boost


Sapphire has followed up AMD with its new Radeon HD 7950 BIOS and launched a new Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Boost Vapor-X OC graphics card.

Sapphire even tweaked the specifications a bit leaving the base GPU clock at 850MHz but pushing the Boost clock up from AMD's 925MHz to 950MHz. It also comes with 3GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5GHz and paired up with a 384-bit memory interface.

As a part of Sapphire's Vapor-X lineup, the card uses a Sapphire Vapor-X cooler with larger vapor-chamber plate paired up with a large heatsink and a pair of 90mm fans. The PCB also got a slight tweak so you are looking at a graphics card that needs two 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors due to its beefier VRM.

The new Sapphire HD 7950 Boost Vapor-X OC graphics card is expected to hit retail/e-tail with a US $350 price tag.
