As is always the case with HIS packaging it's both compact and eye-grabbing. The internal box is packed with high-density foam to protect your card from the rigours of its trip to your door.

Although the colour scheme and general design of the reference cooler is very similar to the HD7970, the centrally mounted fan has always made more sense to us that the end one, and usually leads to quieter operation.

Unlike the 8 and 6 arrangement of its bigger brother, the HD7950 only requires two 6pin PCIe power inputs.

Round the business end we have two mini DisplayPorts and the more standard DVI and HDMI outputs. Although the price of adaptors has come down greatly in recent times we'd still prefer a single DisplayPort and twin HDMI.

Although the blue PCB looks a little odd against the black and red, the HD7950 certainly is a good looking card for a reference design. Next to the Crossfire fingers we have the BIOS switch which allows you to run the full on overclocked BIOS, or of course if you fancy trying out something more exotic you have the safety of a spare.

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
