We haven't seen much from XFX before but they are one company that loves sending out heavily overclocked sample products. XFX has launched the GeForce 7950GX2 with three models - a stock clocked one which comes in at 500MHz on the core and 1200MHz DDR or the memory.
Moving up in the ranks come more interesting models such as the Extreme model which has the core speed bumped up 20MHz (520MHz) and 100MHz bumped up on the memory to give us 1300MHz DDR.
While the small bump in the core speed wasn't much to get excited about the 100MHz memory increase is nice. XFX has not stopped there, the XXX version which we have in our hot little hands weights in at 570MHz core clock which is over a 10% increase and the memory has been bumped up to a massive 1550MHz DDR which is a massive 350MHz over stock and nothing to sneeze at.
Connecting the Beasts
Connecting a total of four cards (2 x 7950GX2) together for Quad SLI apart from being done purely for looks at the moment, *rolls eyes at nVidia*, is done with a single SLI bridge. This is good news as it's the motherboard that comes with the SLI bridge and not the graphics cards. So if you have an SLI motherboard you will be able to put two GeForce 7950GX2 cards in Quad SLI with out having to worry about finding another SLI bridge.
Internal connection between the cards is done by one simple connector in a very well placed position as we saw on the previous pages.
With the cards split a part we did have a quick look and as you can see there is no fancy sticker on the cooler and it does look kind of funny without any VGA or DVI ports on it.
