According to the source cards will be named as ASUS Radeon HD 7950 DirectCU II V2, also known as overclockers dream. The new updated models will provide a huge potential in increasing the framerates. The cooler itself was updated to hold six heatpipes, instead of five in actual model. The cooler shroud has some cosmetic changes, not to say the whole card requires at least three slots. In comparison to previous model, cooler is wider and coveres the whole PCB.
ASUS HD 7950 DirectCU II V2 will be available in two variants, TOP model’s core clock will be overclocked to 900 MHz (memory 5000 MHz), while non-TOP will arrive with stock 800 MHz.
The DirectCU II V2 cards are expected in August with a price tag of actual V1 models, which basically means that V1 will be available for lower price.
