Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 FleX 2GB GDDR5 Review


Sapphire HD6950 FleX 2GB GDDR5 Review by metku

The HD 6950 is a massive card and while the Sapphire Flex-edition is as long as the reference card, it uses Sapphire’s own PCB- and cooler designs rather than the reference ones. The fan has been changed to an axial one and it has moved to the center of the card rather than back. Unfortunately this design doesn’t blow hot air straight out of the case.

After covering the AMD Barts-series HD 6850- and HD 6870 cards thoroughly it’s time to move up the product tree and take a look at the HD 6900-series Caymans. The HD 6950 and HD 6970 cards are the fastest single GPU offerings from the current lineup, and should offer plenty of oomph for even the most demanding games. The tested model is the Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 Flex Edition 2 GB, and it also packs some neat special features.
