Product Description

Product Description

Sapphire HD 7950 3GB OC with Boost Vapor-X Edition has the latest GDDR5 memory clocked at 5000MHz 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 new vapor chamber designed especially for this series. Heat is carried away by four heatpipes (2 x 8mm plus 2 x 6mm), and finally dispersed by two 90mm 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unstoppable 22 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
If you've researched your graphics cards for any length of time, this is one that comes up often in the price/performance ratio conversation (and for good reason). It's a raging juggernaut of a card; physically huge with performance to match. You will probably need a full-sized tower to install this 11" long monolith.

Don't think however that I'm knocking this card based on the above. The size is more than made up for by the its exceptional properties; it requires only around 300W from one 6-pin and one 8-pin connector, stays remarkably cool under load, and plays virtually any game you can imagine at fully maxed settings (60+fps) in 1080p. It has a very wide 384-bit memory bus, full PCI Express 3.0 compatibility, 3GB of memory for large texture support, and has ample headroom for easy overclocking using either the Catalyst Control Centre or Sapphire's Trixx OC application.

This solidly hits the bulls-eye when considering the cost/performance equation, and scales well should you decide to pick up another one for a Crossfire configuration down the road. Consider me as pleased as punch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good card! 16 Dec 2012

Would I have bought a HD7950 for 350+ when they first came out? Probably not. For 230 though it is an abslute steal. I have had a few Sapphire cards over the years and they have always been very good. Cool and very quiet and (if you are into such things) it overclocks very well. If you use a single monitor this is really all the card you need, I can recommend it wholeheartedly. Just be sure you have a decent power supply and, because it is a reasonable size, enough space in your case for it to fit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!!!!!! 1 Dec 2012
By Kieran
Verified Purchase
Amazing card. Never goes past 60C even when overclocked. Plays every game at the highest settings :D. MAke sure you have at least a 500w power supply plus it requires two 8 pin connectors but it does comes with adaptors any way. Also Crossfire cable is included so comes in handy if you plan on buying another one of theses cards in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kick-ass 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase
This thing is a beast. Be aware it's not perfect (It doesn't overclock that well, often freezing up) but aside from getting the HD7970, this is about as good a graphics card anyone could need.

Put it this way; War Thunder is coming to PS4 by the end of this year, and I can run that at maximum settings at a perfect 60FPS, no slowdowns or anything.

Furthermore, it's run pretty much every game I've thrown at it at max without issue, usually at 60+ FPS.

- CoD: Black Ops 2 is perfect
- Sniper Elite v2 is perfect
- CSGO is perfect
- Mount and Blade Warband can be played with smegloads of nice effects and on-screen units with very few slowdowns.
- Source games, as always, will quail and tremble beneath the might of this card.

Buy one, buy one now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, quet 2 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
Great performance, the questest graphics card I ever had, especially if you don't overclock it. Also shines ina really cool way
I don't like that it has one displayport instead of two mini-display-ports. Mini display-port is basically the same thing, just with a smaller plug, so you could connect more and a broader range of monitors to other cards by the same company that have two minidisplay ports.
