01 Specifications on HD 7950 shared via GPU Z

The launch of AMD's Radeon HD 7950 isn't far away now with just a little over a week remaining. Following initial leaked images and specs which we reported on last week, we now have some more concrete info on specs thanks to the first GPU-Z screenshot of the card making its way online.

01 Specifications on HD 7950 shared via GPU Z

The screenshot does indeed look to be genuine with the device ID matching up with that of the upcoming 28nm "Tahiti" GPU powered card. What's important to know from this screenshot is that the core clock rate was manually increased from its default to 880MHz for the purposes of a 3DMark 11 Extreme run (in which it returned a rather impressive result of 2385, still faster than the GTX 580).

The source states that the default core clock will be 800MHz on these cards, while the 3GB of GDDR5 based memory will be paired with the same 384-bit memory interface, running at a speed of 1,250MHz (5GHz QDDR) and dishing out 240GB/s of memory bandwidth.

As previously made known, AMD has given permission for partners to mix things up from the reference design right out the gate, so we should be seeing a good bunch of models with varying custom coolers and factory overclocks to keep things interesting.
