XFX HD 7950 Double dissipation user reviews

I want a new Card for my workstation which will be working with a lot of stream API. Additionally it will also be used as a secondary gaming PC.I am buying them from a local re-seller and i have these two choices.

XFX DD 7950

PCS 7950

I am am exclusive EVGA buyer so i don't know much about radeons. The card will see many hot days do cooling efficiency is a must.This card will see No tinkering(OC ,better cooling etc).


So i ask,Which card will be best suited for my task.I Cousin's 7870 Had to be RMA'd so i am a bit weary about XFX. Everybody Seems to like sapphire But my local reseller Has no sapphire models.

FYI i Live in a country called Nepal.So If i have to RMA it's going to be a PITA,Probably have to wait another 6 months for the card.

I would like to hear from you guys about failure rates and such and general reviews about this card to help me make in informed decision.


I'm leaning towards the XFX card though.

    Are those the exact models you're getting? That specific PowerColor has a crap cooler so you won't want that unless you have a custom water loop.

    DD is okay. I have a PCS 7950 right now on my system and it's working great, but it's this one with a better cooler.
