Over the coming months we're going to see more and more video cards launch from both AMD and NVIDIA. A bit like the HD 6000 series, AMD again find themselves coming to the market earlier than NVIDIA and today we see the second model with in the new HD 7000 series launch.
We are already impressed with what the HD 7970 can do by itself, overclocked, in a pair, in a pair overclocked and running in a trio. Starting at round $550 US and going as high as $1,800 US depending on the brand you buy, the HD 7970, or these setups might not be the one for you.
Like the HD 6950, we hope today that the AMD Radeon HD 7950 comes in at that same strong price point and performance level that makes it such an attractive option for people who want some serious GPU power, but don't want to quite spend the money that's associated with buying the highest end single GPU offering.
Today is of course all about the HD 7950 and the particular one is the brand new Black Edition Double Dissipation model from XFX. This isn't the first time we've see the Black Edition Double D name as we saw XFX launch the HD 7970 Black Edition Double Dissipation 3GB on January 9th.
Already impressed with what the Double D cooler did on the HD 7970, let's hope that it transitions well into the more budget conscious HD 7950. Before we look closer at the performance, though, we need to check out the package. Once that's done we'll move over to the card, look at the specifications a bit closer and then get into the performance side of things to see what exactly the new model from AMD does and this variant from XFX is capable off.
Looking at the package we've got going on its identical to the XFX HD 7970 we looked at which puts with a bunch of paperwork, a sign for your door knob, HDMI to DVI cable, CrossFire bridge and an awesome XFX Black Edition case badge.
