6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 6 comments
BareFeats.com has released another benchmark comparison, this time examining the Sapphire Radeon HD 7950. The tests provide a review of the card's performance versus other Mac Pro video options using a variety of benchmarks including performance in Civilization V and Dirt 2.
UPDATE: BareFeats.com recently added a second part to the review which includes results for StarCraft II, Diablo III, and Team Fortress 2.
1. With one exception (Motion), the Radeon HD 7950 is a significant improvement over the two GPUs Apple offers currently as factory options for the Mac Pro (Radeon HD 5770 and 5870).Check out all the statistics at the links below.

2. The Radeon HD 7950 is clear winner over the current optional Quadro 4000 for Mac kit sold on the Apple Store. It also handily beats the GeForce GTX 285 -- a card once offered in a kit but no longer in production. Many Mac Pro owners likely still have it installed.
3. We included the 2012 iMac's GeForce GTX 680MX as what we consider the strongest existing NVIDIA competition to the AMD GPUs. As you can see the Radeon HD 7950 beats it or 'meets' it in four out of the seven tests we featured. And in all but one test, it is 'in the conversation.'
