XFX passed on a GeForce 7950 GT 570M Extreme to [H]ard|OCP, who pitted it against the toughest competition they could find. One of the most noticable things about this card is the passive cooling system, which begs the question as to what you could achieve with a 3rd party cooling solution. Head over to see what this card can do right out of the box.

HotHardware is a perfect starting point to get an idea of how XFXs 7950GT will perform. For a card that falls just below the performance of a 7950GTX, it is impressive to see a passive cooling solution.
Make sure to make your way back here, Ryan has reviewed the XFX passively cooled version, but we also managed to get a hold of BFG's actively cooled card.

Why would someone release a new ATI X1300 for regular PCI? The main reason would be the size, it can be much smaller than a PCI-E card, and work better in tight spaces such as an HTPC setup. Of course, many HTPC setups do have PCI-E, and there are smaller versions of cards in existance. Tech Spot's benchmarking also gives a perfect example of the difference in bandwidth between PCI and PCI-E.

TweakTown struggled their way through reviewing the XFX GeForce 7900GS, at stock speeds. When they realised they could go from 480MHz and 1400MHz DDR, to 658MHz and 1648 DDR, they decided they liked the card after all.

nVIDIA's new card, the 7900GS comes out at the competitive price range of $200-$240, making SLI systems a little more affordable. Although it is only about $50 cheaper than some 7900GTs, that can add up when you are getting 2 cards. Start off at [H] with their review, but don't forget Ryan's at the top of the page.
