This card earns a Gold award from eTeknix for its good performance.
"AMD have been in the limelight a lot as of late, especially in regards to the Radeon 6990 dual GPU monster that we looked at a little while ago. If it wasn't for the 6950 and 6970 there wouldn't have been anything to base the beast off of, therefore we thought we'd pay homage to the Radeon 6950 by taking a look at the 1GB version.
We took a look at the fully fledged HIS Radeon 6950 2GB card from HIS a little while ago which gave outstanding results, but AMD wanting to appeal to a mass market, decided to venture into the 1Gb territory with this Radeon 6950 1GB graphics card.
With a slight performance hit, will the extra added value be something that people are looking for in a graphics card or is the 2Gb flavour still the one to go for?"
