How my feelings can sit at one end of the spectrum for the HD 7700 series and the other for the HD 7900 series is quite amazing. Normally when we see NVIDIA or AMD release a new series, your feelings are pretty much similar across the board, but it seems like they've just missed the mark with the HD 7700 series while they've hit the ball out of the park with the HD 7900 series.
The HD 7970 is great, but the true apple of my eye would have to be the HD 7950. Out of the box it's great, but falls shy at 2560 x 1600. What's great about it, though, is the overclocking potential which gives you so much fun. Along with that you get this massive sense of value as you get all this extra performance by simply firing up a bit of software, in this case MSI Afterburner.
I absolutely love this version of the HD 7950; honestly, these days, MSI never disappoint when it comes to these high-end video cards and this one is no different. The Twin Frozr series of cooler as always also just never disappoints. What it gives us the ability to do is fantastic and combined with the massively overclockable 28nm HD 7950 core, we end up with just a simply awesome card.
The only thing we're not too sure about at the moment is the price of the card as it still hasn't hit store shelves. Stock shouldn't be far away and as usual you'd expect to pay a small premium over other HD 7950 offerings, but really, looking at the overclocking potential of the card here, it's really worth paying extra.
If you've followed MSI cards over the last few years you'll know that they're some of the best on the market. The HD 7950 Twin Frozr III 3GB card we've got here just helps cement that legacy. If you're after an awesome HD 7950 that you want to have some serious fun with, then this is the card you should be looking at without a doubt.
