AMD confirms 1GB HD 6950

by on19 January 2011

AMD has officially confirmed the upcoming 1GB version of its Cayman based HD 6950 card.

According to HardwareCanucks, the new card will officially be priced at $279 and it should appear in time to counter Nvidia’s GTX 560 Ti.

The MSRP for the full 2GB version is $299 and frankly we were expecting a somewhat more substantial price cut than $20.

European retailers have already listed the first 1GB cards with prices starting at €234. This is no bargain, as 2GB versions go for as little as €245 to €250, depending on the market and VAT rates. Two European retailers claim that they will start shipping Sapphire’s 1GB card within 48 hours.
