XFX HD6950 XXX Edition Review – dual fan overclocked

Rating: 9.0.

The latest card to get the ‘special’ treatment from XFX is the HD6950 XXX Edition which is not only supplied with higher than reference clocks, but a dual fan, customised cooler design. Is this one of the best HD6950’s that money can buy? Today we will find out.

When compared against the reference edition, the XFX HD6950 XXX is supplied with a 30mhz core clock increase, from 800mhz to 830mhz. GDDR5 memory is also enhanced from 5.0Gbps to 5.2Gbps.

We are pleased to see that this time the card also has a customised two fan cooler, unlike the rather disappointing HD6970 Black Edition we reviewed last week.
