Good morning everyone.

Today AMD is launching the long-awaited 1GB version of the Radeon HD 6950. For reasons we can't really delve in to, the NDA for the 6950 is expiring here at 4am PDT, however we're not ready to talk about the 6950 1GB quite yet. We'll be back in a few hours with a full explaination, but in the mean time we can say that performance is virtually identical to the 2GB card throughout our test suite at 1920x1200 and 1680x1050. It's only at 2560x1600 and under Eyefinity that we see the 2GB card make a name for itself.

We'll have more in a few hours.

    AFAIK, AMD's Double Precision performance is higher than current nVidia solutions, not by a huge margin though. Reply

    Dear Ryan
    I wanted to buy HIS HD 6950 for 3D support, as AMD is introducing first time 3D, is it good to buy this card for 3D.
