Excerpt: Just the other day I talked about how the video card market has been quiet lately and all of a sudden it seems we have a surge of video cards from companies. The latest card to arrive is from Sapphire and comes in as part of the much loved TOXIC series which has served us well in the past.
Excerpt: The GTX 560 Ti is a killer card and at launch we saw some companies do some fantastic things with the model when it came to overclocks. This is great for you the consumer, but for AMD and its partners, not so great.
Summary: Final Thoughts
It is good to see AMD get the 6900 series cards out before Christmas and before the end of the year, but where does the HD 6950 really stand. With the price point of $300 it puts itself in between NVIDIA’s GTX 470 and GTX 570. Now in our testing were were not able to compare the HD 6950 to those cards, because we did not have them on hand, but from reading around the performance of the HD 6950 is in between those 2 cards as well.
Pros: Ability to have up to 6 monitors, 2GB of GDDR5, Quite a lot of connections, Good performance
Excerpt: I can honestly say I wasn't 100% sure we would see this day, this year. Twelve months ago it was all about the GTX 480 which at this stage was already delayed by a month. Jump forward twelve months and the HD 6900 series which was due to come out this time last month wasn't here.
Excerpt: KitGuru has saved the most powerful of Sapphire’s range for the last in our series of FleX reviews. The HD6950 FleX Edition is created to target the hard core gamer who wants to game at the highest resolutions.
Summary: В ходе наших испытаний Sapphire HD 6950 2Gb продемонстрировала достойные показатели на тестах 3DMark Vantage 1.0.1. «Тяжелые» тесты с задействованием передовых возможностей DirectX 11 также подтвердили высокий статус графического адаптера.
Pros: Обновленное графическое ядро, улучшенные объективная производительность и субъективное качество картинки по сравнению с аналогичным продуктом прежнего поколения.
