Sapphire working on new HD 6950

FleX Edition with 2GB of memory

We managed to score some information and pictures of Sapphire's yet to be announced HD 6950 FleX Edition card. As you probably already know, Sapphire has been keenly promoting its FleX cards that have "out of the box" support for AMD's Eyefinity.

Although we still don't know if this one will end up at HD 6950 reference clocks or will it be overclocked, we can tell you that this one is as non-reference as it can be. In addition to Sapphire's trademark blue PCB, the new HD 6950 FleX will feature a dual-slot custom cooler with a center placed fan. The backplate features two DVI (one is Single-Link), two mini DisplayPort and one HDMI output.

The story behind the FleX is that you can connect three DVI monitors without buying those fancy DisplayPort monitors or active adapters as two can be connected to the DVI ports and the third goes via supplied HDMI to DVI adapter. The card needs one 8-pin and one 6-pin PCI-Express power connector but we are not sure if Sapphire decided to ditch the "magic" BIOS switch button due to the fact that we are looking at a non-reference PCB.

The card should launch pretty soon and we'll certainly have more details, but until then, you can enjoy those pictures below.
