[TPU] Radeon HD 7950 Reference Design Pictured - Page 10

post #91 of 122
Anyone know when the reference cards are going to be released? I know there is the jan 31st release date, but I heard that there wont be any reference cards released.

Thanks but no thanks AMD, I'll take non-reference cooling on this one.
But then again, who am I kidding? I don't have a single penny to spend

So are the non-reference models much cooler or is it really like only a couple degrees difference? I'm gonna need to order a 7950 the day it comes out (just can't wait any longer) and that means it's a reference model frown.gif

Also 4850 was insanely cheap compared to 7950. It's just crazy. But ppl still buy it, so they can sell it that way...
Sure, you get more performance per $ compared to previous gen, but still not nearly enough.

Let them price it out of site, people will just hold onto older cards. Pretty sure 5870 crossfire still does pretty well on most every game.

...you know there was a damn good reason for not continuing to put back plates on the cards, right?

anyone know what the power consumption is on one of these?

Looks are important. But there's no shots of the part that actually counts: the side and top side.

After your card goes into your system, everybody forgets about what picture was on the card.

The 7970 runs 252 Watts full throttle and 42 Watts idle. Full throttle is 15 Watts higher than the 6970. So my guess since the 6950 runs about 197 Watts full throttle will be the 7950 will run 212 Watts open all the way gaming.
