XFX intros two HD 6950 1GB cards

Written by Fudzilla staff


Bit of an overclock
XFX has introduced two Radeon HD 6950 cards with 1GB of memory, just in time compete with Nvidia’s new GTX 560 Ti.

What sets XFX cards apart from other 1GB Caymans is the XXX version, with a slight factory overclock. It is clocked at 830MHz core and 1300MHZ memory, while the reference board runs at 800/1250MHz. XFX stuck to reference cooling on both cards.

There are a few listings on the EU market, but the prices seem a bit steep, starting at €237 for the reference clocked card and €244 for the OC version. We will probably see lower prices as the cards become readily available.

As I said earlier, these cards overclock like $h!t! Unless you use water, these cards don't like it!

Well to say one thing once and be corrected is okay, keep saying the same wrong thing over and over and be an idiot... ;-)

I'm looking forward to more custom cooled options :P

Does anyone else think 830 Mhz core is kinda lame for a XXX edition card? It would have been better for them to take their time and overclock it a little more. Contrary to what Warrior thinks, they are quite capable of overclocking a lot more.

They got reference cooling...overclock too much and it gets too noisy or too hot.
