R7950 Black Edition Features
There's a lot going on "under the hood" of this card. In addition to the elaborate cooler, XFX enhances the reference 7950 design with a 2 ounce copper PCB, ferrite core chokes, and solid capacitors capable of operation up to 105 degrees Centigrade. Their Black Edition 7950 cards use hand-selected GPUs that XFX says are in the "top 1%" and can reach higher clock speeds without having to increase the wattage being drawn by the card. XFX delivers the card pre-overclocked with a GPU speed of 900MHz (as compared to a stock speed of 800MHz) and a memory speed of 1375MHz (stock speed 1250MHz).
