Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition is with us

Sapphire has introduced the world’s highest-performing graphics card for Mac Pro desktops, the Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition.

The card will hit the market this spring and will give Mac users something nice to play with. Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition is similar to that which Windows uses have been able to enjoy for ages. Until now Mac users can only really experience this quality in their own heads and project it onto their Apple hardware.

This features 1792 stream processors, 112 texture units, 32 render back ends and will be clocked at 800MHz; the board sports 3GB of GGDR5 memory connected using 384-bit memory bus and clocked at 5GHz. Of course it is not cheap. One of these will set you back $450, however in Apple land, particularly at this end of the market this is pretty competitive.

The card launches with a special BIOS as well as milky white vapor-chamber-based cooling system, reports
