Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB OC Video Card Review

The SAPPHIRE HD 7950 OC Edition video card is factory overclocked to 900 MHz and features SAPPHIRE’s new dual-extractor GPU cooler technology. Will this multi-heatpipe cooler with dual fans and a moderate factory overclock be enough to make this card stand out from the crowd? Read on to see how this card performs, overclocks and runs in our test system.

When it comes to overclocking the SAPPHIRE HD 7950 OC Edition was a joy to overclock. The AMD 'Tahiti' core is built on the 28nm manufacturing process and we have found the new Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture very overclocking friendly. Utilizing the SAPPHIRE TriXX overclocking utility we were able to hit 1185MHz on the core and 1600MHz on the memory. This is a 48% clock frequency increase on the core clock and the GDDR5 memory was blazing along at 6400MHz (effective)!

$30 bucks extra for a very poultry OC I don't think I'd be interested now if they made it 1100MHz core and 1550MHz memory then maybe but not for 90MHz core and 0MHz memory that's just ridiculous it is a nice lookin card other than that
