AMD Radeon HD 6950 1GB drops to €189,90

HIS drops the price

It seems like Radeon HD 6950 1GB is looking at price drops ahead as Hightech Information System Limited, also known as the HIS, slashed pricing of its HD 6950 Fan 1GB card to €189,90.

Of course, we are talking here about the reference Cayman Pro card with 1408 shaders that comes clocked at 800MHz for the GPU and 5000MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory. Other partners are still selling their own cards at around €200 but we are sure that the we'll see price drops from them as well. The cheapest AMD Radeon HD 6950 2GB still goes for around €220.

Newegg.com still sells the 1GB HD 6950 at around US $244,99. You can find the HIS HD 6950 1GB listings here.

Do not forget, HD6950 with 2Gb stock, is able to achieve via ([bios dual] that wasn't placed there for nothing) flashing to HD6970, with 880 and more clock values and of course 1536 shaders. Also can be flashed with 6950 modified bios to maintain low voltage, but unlock all shaders + frequencies up to 900 Mhz with +20% Power management!

That model is nice but, here we can't do such manipulations, and the price seems to be proving that!

Overall great performance/price ratio!
Maybe we have a leader on that Title?

There will be an avalanche of price drops when the 590 hits!

with a clockspeed ~25% lower then the normal gtx580, that's not very likely.

if i take the average score for the gtx580sli and take away 25% it ends up 15% lower then the hd6990's score.
now, clockspeed isn't 1 to 1 linked to performance so its likely to end a bit faster then that, but it wont make up 15%.

unless all the rumors are completely untrue of course, but i doubt they are far off given the power requirements of the gtx580.

Even if it's not unlockable, at the new price it gets an ever better performance-per-dollar quota than the 6970.
