HIS Radeon HD 6950 2GB Video Card in Crossfire - Card and Specifications

It doesn't carry the same price tag as its big brother, but packs some good performance. How's the HD 6950 go when we Crossfire it?

The Card

Since at the moment we're only seeing reference designed HD 6950s, there's nothing out of the ordinary here except for the sticker that HIS use. They of course have used the same design as we've seen on the other HD 6000 offerings from HIS. I know it's not much, but it's a nice sticker and honestly, it probably does sway people a little bit when they're not too fussed about the brand they buy.

The rest of the setup includes two 6-Pin PCI-E power connectors at the back of the card, two Crossfire connectors at the front along with that little switch that is used to change the BIOS you're using. Connectivity comes in the form of two mini-DP, HDMI and two DVI ports; one Single-Link and the other Dual-Link.

 

Specifications

 

Following on from the reference design, we've of course got ourselves reference clocks which put the core at 800MHz and that massive 2GB of GDDR5 memory at a beautiful sounding 5GHz QDR.

We're of course looking at Crossfire today, so the main thing we want to also check here is that two cards are indeed enabled and you can see down the bottom that they are.
