The fastest XFX 7950GT card you can buy, comes with 610MHz/1.6GHz clock speeds. For our tests, XFX provided us with the "PV-T71J-YHF9" model, with 550MHz core and 1.4GHz memory clocks. The card can be found online at the retail price of €270~300. The retail box has the usual impressive XFX design:

XFX has included with the card, the retail version of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter!

While all required cables and connectors are also included:

To sum it up, the retail package includes:

  • A 7950GT card
  • A printed user's manual in 13 languages
  • A printed quick installation guide
  • 2x DVI-D Sub15 Dongles
  • A S-Video to Composite Cable
  • Software CD with drivers
  • Retail version of Ghost Recon Advanced WarFighter

Looking at the card, its a mid sized, so will fit without too many problems in a mid ATX box. Despite using passive cooling, the overall size/weight ratio is good.

The card needs a PCI-E power supply in order to operate. Remember, you need at least a 600W SLI certified PSU if you decide to go SLI.

The card has two DVI-D outputs and one S-Video output.

On the back of the card, we can see the passive cooling solution's aluminium fins.
