We don’t comment on each test since the results all fit into one general picture. The Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 Toxic Edition performs very well, leaving behind the theoretically faster and more expensive XFX Radeon HD 6970. When overclocked and in the HD 6970 mode, the Sapphire card gets even faster.
Here is a table with the full test results:
I have to say that we liked Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 Toxic Edition card very much. You can buy this card for $40-60 less than a regular Radeon HD 6970 and you get higher performance, digital voltage regulator circuitry and excellent overclocking potential. It is also a little quieter and comes with good accessories. If it had a unique and really quiet cooler, it would be just perfect.
By the way, there is a Radeon HD 6950 with an alternative cooler in Sapphire’s products range. It must be quieter than the reference coolers, so Sapphire only has to combine the best features of these two products to deliver the ideal Radeon HD 6950.
Nevertheless, Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 Toxic Edition is one of the best graphics cards in this class available today that is why we are proud to award it with our Editor's Choice title. It is, obviously, well deserved.
