[font size="+4"]W[/font]hat is white on the outside yet still gpu powered on the inside with the words “Mac® Edition” etched on the side? Well our friends at Sapphire Technology has taken the AMD 7950 that quite a few users here at InsanelyMac have managed to get working and created a Mac Pro geared version of the card. Now you may look and say “hmm.. already got mine working why read about this one?” Aside from the cute white shroud and accentuated grooves in the shroud itself, there are BIOS differences which cuases this card to diverge from similarity with other 7950s alike.

This Sapphire variant of the 7950 is without a doubt based on the original 7950 that hum along at 850MHz with its sizeable 3GB of GDDR5 memory, the wide lane 240GB/s memory bandwidth, and a memory clock ticking at 1250MHz. As by news from PCGamesHardware, AMD does have intentions have releasing this card to the market of consumers with a price tag of $450. The IO port layout on the backside of the card is your standard DVI – HDMI – miniDP x2 layout found on other 7950s as well. If you do have intentions of dropping this into a Mac Pro (though I feel you readers would much rather do so in your Hackintoshes), be certain that you have the two six pin adapters that will be needed to feed this hungry little guy.
