Sapphire HD7950 Overlock Edition Crossfire Review

Review Score:
7 Flares 7 Flares ×

AMD launch their latest graphics card today … the high end HD7950. We have analysed several partner products already this morning and in this particular review we will focus on the custom Sapphire card, which is supplied in an overclocked state with proprietary two fan cooling solution.

While our other reviews today have detailed single card configurations, this review will focus on Crossfire performance. We will also look at three screen gaming, and whether it is worth spending extra money for two cards.

The Sapphire HD7950 Overclock Edition has received a core clock increase of 100mhz, taking the final board speed to 900mhz. Unlike XFX, Sapphire haven’t touched the memory speeds however, maintaining the 5Gbps data rate.

This card isn’t classed as one of the high grade ‘Toxic’ or VaporX’ Edition cards, so we are interested to see just how good the cooler is.

    Looks like this is the new ‘to buy’ card, like the previous 6950 which could be unlocked.

    Why are all the companies supplying them in such low states of clock? 1000mhz seems easy and would get them sales.

    ARIA Dont sell this one. just the 800mhz version. Its 360. I think this will be closer to 400. Are they any different, better batch or hand picked maybe?

    XFX cooler looks better, this is very plastickly. I would wait on the better Toxic edition which will probably be out in a month, with even higher clocks and premium capacitors etc.
