ATI released a new revision of the X1900GT, something they have done for a lot of past cards as well. In this particular case, they lowered the core speed, while raising the memory's. Legion Hardware puts the 2 cards head to head, and shows what you can expect to see because of this change.

While doing some more game testing for an upcoming review, I came upon an issue that seemed quite confusing. While playing Prey, the new Doom 3 engine game from HumanHead Software and 3D Realms, I noticed that in at least one case, the X1950 XTX card I was using scored the same when set at 2xAA and at 4xAA. Looking back at my review of the X1950 XTX card, specifically the Prey gaming section, I did not test the non-AA or lower-AA setti
