    HEXUS.reviews :: XFX GeForce 7950 GT Extreme Passive Edition 512MB

    The XFX 7950GT Extreme Edition Passive delivers precisely what you'd expect for a 7950GT with slightly increased core and memory clocks.

    Thinking about getting one of these as the second card for SLi. Working on the theory that the VF900's fan will keep them both plenty cool.

    Then again I'll most likely just buy one and stick a another huge HSF fan on it. you said the passive cooling limited the over-clocking a bit, how high did you manage?

    LOL.

    Wait a week or so - there should be an ultimate x1950 from sapphire soonish. It's not totally silent, but it's mostly passive with a backup slow spining fan (judging from their previous ultimate releases).

    Using the X1950pro core it's defiantly possible. Passive X1950XTX?? Well see my last post

    Great card. The fact that the HS is small enough to allow SLI configs is a real boon too.

    You guys did physics and maths in some kind of secondary school right? Didn't they teach you how to make a graph? Yea of course they did, cos i've seen you do it, this is a graph:



    This is horrible:

    To err is human. To really foul things up ... you need a computer.

    Still, it's an improvement over this nonsense:
