The HD 7950 has 2048 SPUs, 128 TAUs and 32 ROPs. The only other ports are on the I/O panel where you'll find a dual DL-DVI connector, a single HDMI 1.4a port, and two mini-DisplayPort 1.2 sockets. Supports a maximum resolution of 2560x1600 on up to 3 monitors.
Stellar performance to challenge 7970 GPU.
Good cooler design.
Thrifty power consumption.
Incredible low noise except at maximum load.
3GB video RAM.
4K display support.
Very low GPU temperatures under load.
Heatsink has poor fit over some memory chips.
No PhysX support.
Noisier under load than the R7970.
Negating some of the benefit of a custom model.
