The Card

The card we're looking at doesn't carry the standard HD 6950 cooler we're used to seeing; instead it uses a Sapphire one which sports a massive fan and some sexy looking copper heat pipes in the back ground. It will be interesting to see what this does to the temps of the card.

Around the rest of the card you're not going to find any surprises. We've got two 6-Pin PCI-E power connectors at the back, two Crossfire connectors at the front and connectivity comes in the form of a Dual-Link DVI, Single-Link DVI, HDMI and two Mini DisplayPort connectors.

Specifications

Sapphire hasn't changed the clock on the 1GB card which comes as no surprise to us. We also won't be changing them today as we want to see how the card goes against its big brother, the 2GB version.

Anyway, what all that means is the core comes in at 800MHz and the 1GB of GDDR5 on this HD 6950 carries with it a clock of 5000MHz QDR - the same clock as the 2GB big brother.
