Great review as always.... But the only Problem I have with it is.... I have not seen this 6950 1gb OEM version anywhere for sale. Everyone of the 6950 1gb cards I have seen are designed from the distributer (XFX/Sapphire/HIS/EXC.....). The good news is I noticed most of them are using the same types of PCB as each other. But the bad news is it is different from the PCB shown in this review. Which makes it tough to water cool if someone was interested. Also on most of the 1gb cards I have noticed the VRM's are on the other side then the VRM's shown on this review.
Hey if someone can show me were to pick up the OEM versions of the card that would be awesome....But if you can't find one don't expect the PCB and Chips location to be the same. Just a heads up.
I take that back it looks like the 6950 1gb Direct CU might have a similar PCB and VReg location as to the OEM AMD Radeon 6950 1gb card. But I don't know if it is the same. I didn't look that close at it.
