Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 Dirt 3 Edition 2GB Video Card Review

With the recent release of DiRT 3 AMD announced that it would be packing the game with select video cards.  Of course Sapphire’s Radeon HD 6950 was one of those cards.  From a technical standpoint the Radeon HD 6950 is basically the same card as the original card we reviewed back in December, except Sapphire has improved the cooling solution.  They have increased the size of the cooling surface, added 5 copper heatpipes, and finally added a second fan.  All of this plus the free game makes this the definite choice when it comes to deciding which Radeon HD 6950 to get.  Read on to check out our review!

Special thanks to Sapphire for providing us with the Radeon HD 6950 Dirt 3 Edition 2GB Video Card to review.
