titleAt the end of May AMD announced that select video cards would include Dirt 3 Steam codes. To celebrate Sapphire recently introduced their HD6950 Dirt 3 Edition. We know it’s going to include a copy of the game Dirt 3, but what else do we have in store? If it’s anything like what we have seen in the past from Sapphire we can expect a good performing card with a cooler design unique to Sapphire. Let’s find out!

Seems like a good card, to me atleast.

Nice to see the graphs now with the arrows pointing to which GPU it is.

We need more Nvidia card reviews!

Regardless, Dirt3 is a great game.

Can you flash this to a 6970?

Wait until you see the graphs for our next video card review! I spent a little time trying to reflash this card last night and didn't have luck, but I don't think it was the cards fault.

I would like to cover more Nvidia based cards also, we don't always have control over what cards we get in.

I am also working on retesting a lot of our past video cards to fill in all of our newer tests. That includes more Crossfire and SLI results.
