XFX Radeon 6950 1 GB XXX – Building a XXX Eyefinity system

A few weeks ago when NVIDIA launched the GTX 560 Ti there was a little bit of movement in terms of Radeon pricing to make the cards more attractive to consumers but that wasn’t the main response from AMD. Quite quietly they added a new product to their 6900 family of cards, a 6950 which was equipped with 1GB of memory rather than the standard 2GB. This new card, with less memory, was able to hit a lower price point than the original model and so became a competitor to the 560, taking that title away from the 6870.

Today we will be looking at one of the first custom versions of the 6950 1GB, the XFX XXX and in the process we will take a detailed look at 1920×1080 performance as well as 5760×1080 (Eyefinity) and CrossFire. As always that will be combined with our GPU computing and HD media playback tests (including Blu-Ray 3D) but to spice things up a little we are adding in a detailed look at building an Eyefinity system for high end gaming, high end wheel and stick controllers… video of the system running… the works.
