It's been too long since we've reviewed an XFX card, and we've got their famous Black edition of the 7950 here.

Awesome review as usual. Going to be interesting to see what kepler offers seeing as tahiti is a more than capable overclocking architecture.

Nice review for a nice graphics card.

I've rarely been impressed by AMD but I must admit that their graphics cards are successful. XFX is one of my favorite brand and I find them particularly beautiful.

Tom!!

You alright bud, you looked absolutely battered on the XFX Video.

Pleased to see an appreciable difference between stock 7970 and 7950 which won't be bridged by a bios frig.

Any suggestions on why the unigen quadfire 7950 score was so poor?

I've noticed something similar on dual 6950's where you go past a certain overclock point and it becomes shockingly bad.

This is probably the best looking 7950 at the moment.The initial fan step down was crazy in the video.
