XFX R7950 Black Edition Review
It's been a while since we have reviewed a card from XFX, a company who have been producing Radeon based GPUs for many years now. They return to OC3D with a bang too, as the card we have up for review is their top line HD7950, the Black Edition, with the Double Dissipation fans.
We saw in our review of the reference design card how well it overclocked, but of course we're aware than not everyone is comfortable in pushing their latest expensive purchase to the limit.
If you number amongst those people then a pre-overclocked card might be just the chap for you.
The Black Edition comes out the box with 900MHz on the core, so we should see a good increase in the stock speeds compared to it's reference rival. We also have XFXs Double Dissipation cooling utilising their Ghost technology. This allows the airflow to reach the PCB, and vent from any available space, which should keep temperatures of all the components down without excessively spinning the fans up.
