Radeon HD 7950 Review
Radeon HD 7950 is a high-end GPU based on the 28nm GCN architecture.
It's based on the Tahiti Pro Core and therefore offers 1792 Shader Processing Units, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs on a 256-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked at 800MHz while the memory clock operates at 1375MHZ.
Compared to Radeon HD 7970, its performance is much lower and behind NVIDIA's high-end GeForce GTX 660 Ti, despite being a direct competitor to GeForce GTX 670.
Radeon HD 7950 was later modified via a BIOS update and released as Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition.
This GPU needs to be paired with a considerably strong CPU such as 3570K or any other CPU that offers similar performance. Upgrading this GPU to anything lower than a dual-graphics solution (such as GeForce GTX 690) is useless and not really worth it. Crossfiring it might be a good option, as well.
