HIS HD7950 Review


Talk about back with a bang.

Having been relatively disappointed with the performance of the HD6 series, the HD7970 was a stunner. AMD aimed squarely at the GTX580 and definitely achieved their aims.

Of course, as with all premium products, there is a heavy price-tag to pay for that performance. So far more of us have been waiting for the release of the HD7950 to see if it's a repeat of the excellent 4850 (very close to its bigger brother), or more akin to the 6950 (only really useful in Crossfire).

Wonder no longer as we are here with the first of three HD7950 reviews today.

First up we have the reference model, here brought to us via the fine folks at HIS Digital.

Technical Specifications

As is often the case with the slightly reduced siblings in the graphics world, the main changes are in clock speed and the amount of Stream Processors. As always though, one of those problems can be overclocked away.

Otherwise it's the same excellent 28nm Tahiti Core we found on the HD7970.

Yeah great card indeed. This is better than the 7970 in terms of price/performance but then again it was always going to be considering the 7970 is the fastest single gpu card out there.Quote
