Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 Dirt 3 Edition 2GB Video Card Review
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
Excerpt: Like the previous Dirt game, Dirt 2, the latest iteration from Codemasters, Dirt 3, is another big release for AMD. While maybe not quite as big as the second one which saw the implementation of DirectX 11, one would argue that this one could be even bigger because of the rave reviews the game has received, making it not only a game that looks good, but also a game that's good to play.
