AMD Radeon HD 7950: performance testing

After the Radeon HD 7970 launched early this year, AMD has just released another graphics card, using always the Tahiti Core Duo Pro (DirectX 11.1, the PCI Express 3.0, OpenCL 1.2). Less powerful than its elder, HD 7950 always fits the top of range but was a little more affordable to the public. Nevertheless, the performance of this new graphics card not will be similarly not accessible to all budgets, since be expected upon its release in Europe, with a budget around the €430.

His arrival now allows to see its performance and to compare its possibilities to other graphic cards of the time.

The Radeon 7950 displays a report quality / rather honest price in the light of the proposed performance. Concessions orchestrated by AMD to make it more accessible are fairly reasonable. His main asset is his very interesting potential for overclocking.
