As far as the Sapphire HD 7950 goes there's nothing here that is going to blow your mind. This is just another HD 7950 that comes in at that $459 price point, and while a little boring compared to some of the other HD 7950s we've looked including the original Sapphire offering, this is still a really nice card that hits in at a good price because of the small overclock and single fan cooler.
As for the driver side of things; there's not much going on when it comes to looking at them on the HD 7950. We often see a slight bump here and there, but nothing to major. On the other hand we saw the HD 7970 benefit a little more, saying that we'd still recommend you installed the latest WHQL driver on a HD 7950 as it's the latest driver from AMD.
For the most part, there's not much else that needs to be said. If you want a HD 7950 that comes in at the MSRP price point that AMD launched at this is a nice offering that has a good quality cooler. It's not as exciting as some of the others we've looked at, but they come in at a higher price point.
At the same time if you're interested in getting some extra performance you can install MSI Afterburner or use Sapphire's own Trixx software and have some fun overclocking to push the speed to levels beyond most pre-overclocked cards.
