give me a black pcb over a plate anyday.

my bad, i meant for the 7950. i was able to find this site, but i am not sure how accurate it is: http://videocardz.com/ati/radeon-7000/radeon-7950

if the 7950 truly is around 150w (for the 1.5gb version, not overclocked), this would be excellent!

no, it wouldn't. that would be horrible.

that would mean lesser vrm quality components and less overclocking headroom.

moar powah!

Whoops just finished editing my post previous page. I'm deducting based on what the 6970 and 7970 running 15 Watts higher maxed that the 7950 will run same over what the 6950 does and put it at 212 Watts for the 7950.

at what frecuency will work the 7950? we've seen that these GCN aren't hot at all even at high frecuencies, maybe this cooler is good enough for this card...

800 MHz

there was a review of 7950 saying that the temperature is worse then 7970 while the fan was making more noise...

And I was thinking 7950 CF would be a good idea.

this card is ugly as all hell!

Ill be waiting for Kepler (Gives me time to save money also smile.gif )

No irony here. Nobody's saying that cheap plastic casings are unprecedented. Only that they're cheap, and plastic... and... lame.

Looks Awesome!! Especially since I don't stare at my pc while running synthetics like most eveyone in here hating probably does, I look at FPS in real games... what actually matters
