Another Radeon HD 7950 graphics card has surfaced. Sapphire is preparing their model with custom cooling, although clocks remained default.
WCCFTech found a set of pictures on Chinese website of new Sapphire model which is to be released tomorrow. Card has a black custom cooling system with one fan. It is available for $449.
Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 has a custom case for cooling which is impressive on the outside, while it is actually very disappointing inside. It looks like a cheap imitation of proffessional cooling. After disassembling cover of the fan, you may wonder why wasn’t this card made for one slot. But that is probably only a matter of time.
Card has default clocks, which are 810MHz for core and 1250MHz for memory. Display outputs are one DVI, one HDMI and two mini-DisplayPorts.
Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 was tested on Core i7-2600K processor (overclocked to 4.5GHz, ASUS ROG M4E mainboard, DDR3-1600 4GB*2 memory and Crucial C300 128GB SSD.
