Radeon X1950 XTX Review

Subject: Graphics Cards | August 23, 2006 - 06:06 AM |

PC Perspective has just published its review of the new flagship graphics cards from ATI, the X1950 XTX and X1950 CrossFire Edition. Based on a slightly modified R580 GPU core with GDDR4 memory technology, the X1950 XTX has amazingly high memory bandwidth numbers to support the growing number of users with ultra-high resolution displays like the 30" Dell LCD we tested it on. In many cases, the X1950 XTX is able to out perform a dual GPU 7950 GX2 card with twice as much frame buffer

If you have any questions or comments, I have started a thread in our forums on this review, so drop in and see what others are saying!

As a single card, looking at just the X1950 XTX, ATI has a fantastic product on their hands. While not the slam dunk winner in all of our benchmarks at resolutions of 1600x1200 or 2048x1536, the X1950 XTX gets ATI much closer than it was before to the NVIDIA 7950 GX2 multi-GPU board. At 2560x1600, the GDDR4 memory system on the X1950 XTX really starts to shine as more often than not, it is able to overcome the top NVIDIA card and still maintain a playable frame rate.
