The AMD ATI Radeon HD 6950 measures 27cm long (10.6 in), the typical length for today's high-end graphics cards. Just as its predecessor, the Radeon HD 6950 GPU has been fabricated using the 40nm process, yet AMD has squeezed in 486 million more transistors resulting in a die increase of 16%. The GPU core is clocked at 800MHz, the GDDR5 memory operates at 1250MHz. The HD 6950 packs 1408 SPUs, 88 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

As it stands there is no better value than Radeon HD 6950 GPU based video cards in this "sweet spot" of ~$249. The Radeon HD 6950 GPU has proven to be a powerhouse for gaming, and now you have two different pricing options. The 1GB models are...

AMD's Radeon HD 6950 1GB graphics card's arrival is an obvious move to scupper NVIDIA's plans for performance leadership at the £200 price point. Looking very much like its 2GB-equipped counterpart and performing nigh-on identically in...

As a response to the , the £215 Radeon HD 6950 1GB mostly fits the bill, producing performance that’s reasonably competitive with the GTX 560 Ti 1GB in our test games. However, we’d still give the performance win to the GTX 560 Ti 1GB...

Final Words & Conclusion So first off, did you guys check the difference in-between the 1GB and 2GB 6950 versions as well, yeah ... the results are nearly NIL. The added benefit of an extra full GB is excruciatingly hard to measure, even with all...

When AMD released the 1GB version of its Radeon HD 6950, it accomplished two goals. First, it gave AMD fans another choice for mid-range to high-end graphics, for about $20 less than the 2GB version. Second, it released a more competitive offering...

A week ago the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti was set to dominate the sub $250 video card market, but AMD put an end to that with the AMD Radeon HD 6950 1GB video card. Both cards are great and at the end of the day the gamers and enthusiasts are the...

The NVIDIA GTX 560 Ti marks not only the return of the Titanium suffix (and likely others are pending) to the GeForce line but also another entry into the wildly successful $249 price point. By averaging a 35% performance advantage over the current...

With AMD’s latest cards squared away, our final thought is on today’s launch in general. If nothing else, hopefully today’s write-up has entertained you, and with any luck we’ve imparted upon you a bit of practical wisdom about how the GPU industry...

It isn’t often that we get two cards competing cards launching on the same day but that’s exactly what we have here today. On one hand NVIDIA is showcasing the GTX 560 Ti; a card that brings high performance at a mid-range price. Meanwhile,...

Our rating is calculated according to our test results with the accent on 3D performance. In practice, this is a good gamer model for the latest 3D titles but with slightly higher energy consumption than its predecessor and high noise levels in 3D....

Radeon HD 6950 1GiB je viac než vyrovnaným súperom k GTX 560 Ti, celkový výkon a pomer výkon/cena hovoria za všetko. Jediný problém referenčných verzií Caymanov je ich chladič. HD 6950...

Hermed nåede vi fremt til konklusionen af testen af AMDs seneste HD6950 version. Det er tydeligt at se, at ydelsen generelt er god og stabil. Det leverer gode spilbare FPS og en jævn ydelse samtidig med at man stadig kan aktivere FSAA og AF...

So richtig scheint es AMD nicht geschmeckt zu haben, dass zum Launch der GeForce GTX 560 Ti (ComputerBase-Test) die Radeon HD 6950 als Sparringspartner hat herhalten müssen, denn so wurde die Karte ungewollt in einen Preiskampf verwickelt. Da kommt...

Tout comme le modèle 2 Go, nous attribuons la note de 4 étoiles à cette carte. Elle ne peut prétendre aux 5 étoiles à cause de son format et du bruit et des performances en retrait par rapport à la GTX 560 de Nvidia....

Im Dezember ging AMDs Radeon HD 6950 an den Start und gefiel auch durch ihr 2 GiByte großes Speicherpolster - vor allem aber durch ein sehr attraktives Verhältnis aus Preis und Leistung bei geringem Stromverbrauch (siehe ). Im Januar konterte...

Comme c’est devenu une habitude, il vous faudra départager les GeForce GTX 560 Ti et les Radeon HD 6950 1 Go, ainsi que les GeForce GTX 460 1 Go et les Radeon HD 6850, sur un terrain autre que celui des performances, suivant vos préférences. La GeForce...

Enfin des deux cartes GeForce GTX 560 Ti de partenaire que nous avons pu tester, le modèle de Gigabyte a notre préférence ! Bien sûr l'overclocking de ce dernier est plus important, avec à la clé des performances supérieures, mais sa finition semble...
