Description

Sapphire HD 7950 3 GB OC with Boost Vapor-X edition has the GDDR5 memory clocked at 5000 MHz effective, and runs with a core clock speed of 850 MHz which with PowerTune Dynamic Boost rises to 950 MHz on the engine. It has a slightly less sophisticated 8-phase power design and the versatile output configuration of Dual-link DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort.

The Vapor-X cooler is based on a vapor chamber designed especially for this series. Heat is carried away by four heatpipes, and finally dispersed by two 90 mm fan with aerofoil blades and dust repelling bearings. The Vapor-X cooler easily handles the heat generated from the HD 7950 even under extreme load conditions.

For enthusiasts wishing to maximise performance, a new version of the SAPPHIRE overclocking tool, TriXX supporting this latest generation of technology is available free to download from the SAPPHIRE website. TriXX allows tuning of GPU voltage as well as core and memory clocks, whilst continuously displaying temperature. Manual control of fan speed is supported, as well as user created fan profiles and the ability to save up to four different performance settings. Both of the SAPPHIRE HD 7970 models have a dual BIOS, allowing for further experimentation by the enthusiast. On the OC edition, the second BIOS is pre-programmed to allow a higher maximum overclock and more aggressive fan profile.

Great by Sapphire
Reviewed by . Review Posted 06/11/2013
4 5

The card 7950 itself by AMD has great performance but problems latency and things but good frames/£
the cooling system by Sapphire is excellent and kept my card so cool if you put the fan up to full it was loud but because it was so effective even at an 1150MHZ overclock it didn't need to go that loud as it still kept the card cool at less strain.

  • Overall 4*
  • Ease of use 5*
  • Value for money 5*
