Gigabyte Radeon HD 7950 WindForce 3 Graphics Card Review

By on February 24, 2012, 1:55 AM

AMD ended 2011 on a high note, unleashing the market's fastest graphics card (single-GPU) and beating its adversary to the next-generation GPU yet again. Conveniently enough, AMD also offers a valid alternative to its flagship GPU with its Radeon HD 7950, which is essentially a lower-specced and lower-priced version of the HD 7970.

The HD 7950 is set at $419 for the 1536MB version, while the full 3072MB variant is $449. Although it's currently possible to find a 3GB model for $449, you can expect to pay closer to $500.

Gigabyte has redesigned the PCB and included an upgraded cooler that is meant to lower temperatures and improve overclocking. Considering the HD 7970's respectable performance, we expect a solid showing from the HD 7950.
