Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 Dirt 3 Edition Video Card Review

Rage3D
4 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Introduction Sapphire's latest game-themed card is based on the AMD Radeon HD 6950, otherwise known as Cayman Pro from the Northern Islands series. The card is a custom PCB design, shorter than the reference AMD one. The main difference is in the cooling, the standard vapor chamber and blower-style fan is replaced by a large diameter copper heatpipe heatsink with dual axial fans.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB Dirt 3 Edition Graphics Card Review

  • Conclusion: Final ThoughtsWhen we received this card, its assumption was that a bog-standard 6950 was inside with a Dirt 3 voucher, but it was a pleasant surprise to see an after-market cooler with a twin-fan setup, which will look stylish with any setup due to the black plastic cooler. The cooler is good, and offers some reasonable temperatures and quiet noise ouput, but other similar after-market cards offer a bit more including pre-overclocked speeds, which sadly this card...

  • Summary: At a retail price of only $270, the Sapphire HD 6950 DiRT 3 Edition is one of the most affordable 2GB 6950s cards available right now, and even competes with many 1GB models. You get a much improved cooler that keep temps low and noise to a minimum. Gaming performance is excellent bang for the buck especially when compared from cards of equal performance from Nvidia.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 Dirt 3 Edition 2GB Video Card Review

ThinkComputers
18 July 2011
  • Summary: Final Thoughts When I first got word about this card I simply thought it was a normal HD 6950 branded “DiRT 3 Edition” because it came with a free copy of the game. I was wrong, Sapphire really surprised us by improving the cooler on the card. It now has 5 copper heatpipes, dual 80mm intake fans and the heatsink has a large surface area. This cooler not only cools better than the reference design, but also is much quieter. This makes for a more enjoyable experience.
  • Pros: – Great cooling performance, – Quiet, – DiRT 3 download voucher included, – HDMI cable included
  • Cons: – None that I found

Sapphire HD 6950 Dirt 3 Edition DX11 Video Card Review

Hi Tech Legion
5 July 2011
  • Summary: The performance of the Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 Dirt 3 Edition was as expected and excellent across the board. FPS was excellent in even the most demanding games at 1920x1080. APP functions were fast and properly relieved the CPU of load. At present, New Egg lists twenty (count ‘em, 20) HD 6950 cards with 2GB GDDR5 memory. Three of them are from Sapphire alone and all of the Sapphire products come in at stock speeds.
  • Pros: Excellent Gaming Performance, Excellent APP Performance, Free Dirt3 Included, Advanced Dual Fan Quiet Cooling, Up to 5 Displays with Eyefinity, Good CrossfireX Scaling, Included TRIXX Utility With Easy and Flexible OC and Control, Low Power Consumption to Performance, Extremely Quiet Cooling

Sapphire HD 6950 Dirt 3 Edition

  • Conclusion: With top shelf performance, a free game, free HDMI cable, and a stylish cooler Sapphire’s HD 6950 Dirt 3 Edition a gem of a card. At first it was a little disappointing that it lacked artwork from Dirt 3, but the cooler they included has to be the best designs we have seen come out of Sapphire to date. Short of one of Sapphire's silent cards I doubt you will find many cards that are as quiet as this card, even at 100% fan speed.
