[] ASUS Revises Radeon HD 7950 DirectCU II

ASUS is working to redesign its Radeon HD 7950 DirectCU II family of graphics cards. The new revision sees a breakaway from the common design that HD 7950 and HD 7970 DirectCU II graphics cards share, to one that has a more compact cooler and PCB, with denser aluminum fin stacks, six copper heat pipes (instead of five on the original design), and a redesigned display output layout (2x DVI DL, 1x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort; compared to 1x DVI, 1x HDMI, and 2x mini-DisplayPort, on the original). The new design could be implemented on both the standard and TOP models. The standard model ships with clock speeds of 800 MHz core, while the TOP model ships with 900 MHz core clock speed. While it's not expected that the new cards will be cheaper than the current HD 7950 DirectCU II cards (at least not significantly), they could let ASUS brace itself for industry-wide price-cuts of the HD 7950, if and when they come about.
