The Radeon HD 7970 was (limited) released back in December, now it’s time for it’s younger sister, the HD 7950, to be released.

The Radeon HD 7950 boasts the same features of the Radeon HD 7970 however since it’s a step down when comparing to the top end card it has lower hardware capabilities (it still has however 3GB of memory) and as a result lower performance values. That doesn’t by any chance make the HD 7950 a “weak” card since it’s supposed to be the second fastest single GPU card in the HD 7000 family by AMD and also the second fastest single GPU card in the world until the next generation by Nvidia arrives. The HD 7950 is in fact faster than GTX 580, Nvidia’s high end single GPU card at the moment.

Contrary to the HD 7970, the HD 7950 release features not only the reference models but also some premium models since manufacturers got their hands on the HD 7950 in time to make it possible. Brands such as XFX, MSI, Powercolor and Asus already released some of their premium models with factory overclocked and improved cooling solutions.

The Powercolor HD 7950 PCS+ is one of the mentioned premium models released in the first day

The HD 7950 is fully available now and the reference models should be priced at $449 with the premium models being somewhat higher.
