AMD today released the little brother of the Radeon HD 7970, the Radeon HD 7950 is now alive and kicking. Guru3D.com has prepared a threefold of articles today covering two retail cards, and a 2/3-way crossfire review including AMD's reference R7950 card. Here is an overview of our articles:
HIS Radeon HD 7950 review
It is time for the second product based of the series 7900 though, the Radeon HD 7950 launches today. AMD took the Tahiti XT GPU sliced away some shader units, clocked it a notch slower and planted it onto a new PCB lined up with a new cooler. Overall the R7950 will not disappoint, good performance, impressive power consumption and great heat and noise levels. But will a 400 EUR pricetag however justify this product ?
PowerColor is the first in our line-up of R7950 reviews with a customized model. It is the PCS version that clocks in at a cool 880 MHz on the graphics core with it's memory clocked default at an effective data rate of 5000 MHZ. Armed witha custom cooler it is silent, and even cooler compared to the reference model.
We have three Radeon HD 7950 cards in house -- anyone smells Crossfire ? We'll setup these three cards up in multi-GPU mode (two and three-way) clock them standard and test multi-GPU performance -- taking it to the next level, multi-GPU gaming. As if you figured just one card would be interesting, you have no idea what's coming at you with two and three cards. Have a peek at the offering, and then march onward into the review, hihoo Tahiti PRO
