We are not at CeBIT this year, but we are picking up some of the news. One of the more interesting things we have seen is a white Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition. Of course that means this card is aimed at Apple’s Mac systems and Mac gamers. Apple already offers the Radeon HD 5870 or HD 5770 CrossFire on their Mac Pro. Besides the white design this card is still pretty much a reference design with a 800 MHz clock speed and 3GB of GDDR5.
The card has an HDMI, two mini-DisplayPort and DVI connections. No word yet if you will be able to install two of these cards in a CrossFire setup, of course Apple’s software has to support it.
Pricing of the card is set at $450 US and the two necessary 6-pin power connectors will sell for $25 on the Apple Store.
