XFX R7950 Black Edition Review
The packaging is certainly attractive, and also not overly large either. Internally the cardboard is stiff and there is a lot of foam to help protect your purchase.
Taking the card out we can't help notice how gorgeous it is. The design of the Ghost cooler really catches the eye with an aluminium construction and a nice colour scheme which draws the focus on to those two big fans. It's very attractive indeed.
Despite the Black Edition having a good overclock out the box it still on requires the two 6pin PCIe power connectors. Outputs are the same as the reference too, although we do like the inclusion of the XFX logo in the vents, and the red DVI port. Little touches make the difference.
The Ghost cooler has lovely minimalist lines and looks attractive from any angle.
We did spot that unlike the reference designs the XFX hasn't got the dual-BIOS switch. Not a deal breaker but an odd omission.
