With the EAH 6950, ASUS presents its first AMD Radeon HD 6950 based graphics card which has been equipped with 2 GByte GDDR5 memory. The successor of the very successful Radeon HD 5850 lets us all hope for another superb graphics card with an excellent power to performance ratio.
We'd like to thank ASUS for providing us with the testsample.
Almost a year ago AMD presented this cards predecessor the Radeon HD
5850. Back then this card was able to convice with its performance and
especially with the energy efficiency. The new Radeon HD 6950 is being
manufactured at TSMC using 40 nanometer process technology. The Cayman Pro GPU
which is being built onto the HD 6950 consists of 2.64 billion transistors and
consumes a maximum of 200 Watt. Furthermore the GPU can access 2 GByte of GDDR5
memory via a 256 Bit wide interface. AMD provided the HD 6950 with some really
nice memory that does 5'000 MHz by default.
On the following pages we will show you the strenghts and weaknesses of the ASUS EAH 6950.
