nVidia's GeForce 7950GT - it was a graphics card that didn't get too much attention, and for good reason in all honesty. It is literally just a 512MB variant of the highly popular 7900GT. While this wouldn't be a bad thing considering companies like Palit had already established their 512MB 7900GT with a increased core and memory speed when word of the 7950GT got out, it didn't really WOW many people. It was slower than a 7900GTX and only slightly faster than a 7900GT 256MB, pricing wasn't anything special and in a nutshell caused the card to silently hit the market.
The 7900GT generally caught onto a lot of bad press thanks to the extremely high failure rate from some companies who simply offered too much of an overclock. Cards died from anywhere between one week to three months but on particular brands the failure rate was consistent enough that you couldn't put it down to a bit of bad luck. With the bad press it made sense that nVidia would want to do a bit of a rehash with the highly popular card. The 7900GT became discontinued and the 7950GT took its place, it is actually the highest spec card in the GeForce 7 series line up now with both the 7950GX2 and 7900GTX being also discontinued. If you're after a high-end card and don't have the bucks to spend on the GeForce 8800 series, this is your only option from nVidia.
If you're looking for a bit more out of the box performance then the 7900GS but don't quite have the money for those mean looking 8800 series cards, then the 7950GT might be the card for you. Let's take a look at the ASUS EN version.
