Sapphire's Overclocked Radeon HD 7950 Card Tipped Online

Paul Lilly

AMD is expected to launch its Radeon HD 7950 graphics card in a little less than two weeks from now on January 31, 2012, for around $400 to $450, if the Internet rumors prove true. In the meantime, Sapphire apparently has an overclocked version in the works, with several official looking picture having been leaked to the Web.

Guru3D forum member "asder00" posted nearly half a dozen photos of Sapphire's overclocked card, and they appear to be legitimate press photos, including two that show the retail box. Unfortunately, eye candy is the only treat we're given; no word on specs, price, or release date for this particular model.

To help with the speculation, Turkish website posted rumored specifications of the HD 7950. According to Donanimhaber, there will be two versions available, one with 1.5GB of onboard memory and one with 3GB. The stock clocked GPU will run at 800MHz and the memory at up to 1250MHz.
