The Radeon HD 8950 OEM is a graphics card by AMD, launched in January 2013. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the Tahiti graphics processor, in its Tahiti PRO variant, the card supports DirectX 11.2. The Tahiti graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 352 mm² and 4,313 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked Radeon HD 7970, which uses the same GPU but has all 2048 shaders enabled, AMD has disabled some shading units on the Radeon HD 8950 OEM to reach the product's target shader count. It features 1792 shading units, 112 texture mapping units and 32 ROPs. AMD has placed 3,072 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 384-bit memory interface.
