HIS Radeon 6950 2GB Graphics Card Review

/ 12 years ago

« Previous Page


The Radeon 6950 has been a long awaited graphics card that at one point wasn’t going to see Christmas 2010, but from AMD’s efforts, they managed to get the release just in time, and with the GTX 580 low on stock, and the GTX 570 being Nvidia’s true flagship card, the 6900 series seems to be perfect as the competition heats up between AMD and Nvidia.

The 6900 series showed up on the GPU roadmap quite some time ago, and it was very clear that the performance wasn’t going to be quite what comsumers expected, and this was mainly down to the model number confusion. The thing you have to understand is that this card is more about features and efficiency as opposed to performance with the ability to switch GPU BIOS, and to alter the TDP by 20% either way.

The benchmarks gave some clear indictations of the potential this card has, and with room for overclocking, it could be a serious contender when compared to the GTX 570 and even the 580 from Nvidia, especially when we look at the likes of 3DMark 11. Other benchmarks gave very small differences between the power-mad GTX 580 and 6950, and when you look at the price, you’d be stupid not to get a 6950.
