Calls it HD 7950 Boost State Edition


Powercolor has launched its newest Radeon HD 7950 graphics card simply dubbed Powercolor HD 7950 Boost State Edition. The new HD 7950 features a new BIOS that should give HD 7950 enough of an edge to counter the launch of Nvidia GTX 660 Ti graphics card.

Although it was expected that new BIOS will simply show up on any new HD 7950 graphics cards it appears that some partners would rather launch a totally new graphics card. In case you missed it, the new BIOS brings the GPU clock up to 850MHz while memory ended up reference 1250MHz.

The new BIOS update also brings AMD's Powertune with Boost taking the GPU up to 925MHz when possible. AMD already promised that the additional "boost" will not affect the actual price but that we will have to wait until these cards actually show up in retail/e-tail.

Unfortunately, Powercolor did not announce the precise price or the actual availability date.
