6950's being deactivated?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Was looking to get another 6950 here real soon, and just got on newegg to look and it seems there not stocking the sapphire 6950's anymore? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102954

Not really. They discontinued one model. They don't carry reference models either, that also doesn't mean 6950s are gone.

Just that model.

And you don't have to have a sapphire card to crossfire it with.

I know, but i heard it helps to keep them both the same instead of mixing them, helps with stability a bit!, i gotta try and find another dirt 3 edition!

Well the replacement for the 6950 is already here, the 7950. So I would expect shipments of the 69XX cards to stop soon.

When I ordered my second 6950 2gb from NCIX they only had 2 in stock across all their stores. I had to call them to tell them to ship it from the BC warehouse because they were waiting for stock in the ON warehouse. (ON is closer to me that's why they were waiting)

Actually the card you linked is the exact same one that I recently bought to xfire. I wanted to make sure that I got another dirt 3 one with that cooler on it because its a really nice cooler.

Here is the same card on ncix.com, but it seems to be on back-order.

If you wana go crossfire 6950 I would recommend not waiting too much longer. They don't usually go on sale either, just stop the shipments. If you wait for a sale chances are you won't get the model you were looking for.

The XFX models are also running out of stock, as a matter of fact they only have 1 of the 1 gb models and 1 of the 2gb models in stock whereas before there were at least 5 total models from xfx.

What few 6950s places have left are being sold out and not replaced, (due to the 7950 replacement). Also beware, most of the 6950 boards for sale are all Rev.2 boards, without bios switches and cannot be flashed to 6970 specs.

That really sucks for consumers if the 6950 is discontinued. Hopefully the 7870 2gb will be priced reasonably.

Edit - Looks like it will cost a little more ~$300.
