nVidia's brand spanking new GeForce 7950GT is a good graphics card - it's really what the older 7900GT should have been in the first place. A 512MB good performing but not ultra expensive graphics card!
The 7950GT is going to appeal to a few people. Those that want a 512MB graphics card and those people who are willing to spend an extra few dollars to venture into something a bit faster then the 7900GT but not break the bank like the 7900GTX.
While the overclocking wasn't as pleasing as the 7900GS, it will be interesting if this is due to the heat pipe technology that XFX have opted to use instead of a standard fan/cooler combination. The clock speeds are already quite high and fairly impressive, so that may be all we can expect out of the 7950GT - we will test more cards soon and find out and report back to you.
It was good to see that XFX have also chosen to include a full version copy of Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfare which is a fantastic game and quite taxing on the system - so you should be able to get some real use out of your new graphics card out of the box.
All in all the new nVidia GeForce 7950GT is a good graphics card but it seems to be a bit of a stop gap measure. While ATI have released a new card (X1900XT 256MB) that is slightly faster, nVidia are saying we are happy with our top-end but want to bring some more competitive pricing in the high-end market - hence the release of the 7900GS and 7950GT.
