HIS HD7950 Review

Test Setup, Overclocking and Temps

HIS HD7950 Review

Test Setup

As with all of our GPU reviews from 2012 onwards we're using the X79 LGA2011 rig.

HIS Digital HD7950
Catalyst HD7970 Drivers 11.12
Intel Core i7-3960X @ 4GHz
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
Corsair AX1200W
Corsair GTX8
Corsair H100
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Overclocking

Just like its brother the HD7950 is a monster overclocker, easily capable of maxing the slider in Catalyst Control Center. It's not only the Core that can take a good overclock either, the Memory can be pushed way beyond stock.

Temperatures

Demonstrating that beliefs about the correct place to put a fan doesn't make us designers, the reference HD7950 is cooler than the HD7970 under load, but pretty toasty when idle.

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
