reference means original product released by the manufacturer, which is either AMD or Nvidia. The card you mentioned above is an alteration of the AMD design, by HIS.

Reference means cards that follow the original design as provided by the manufacturer (amd). All the reference cards on newegg.com are out of stock, like these two:

Newegg.com - HIS H695FT2G2M Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100312SR Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
