a yes a reason to buy a new graphics card
Great review, now my 7950GX2 is teh suck!
ugh they always bring out an uber cooler after i buy my GFX cards
oh well, the x1900xt isn't THAT bad in my experience ... perhaps ATI could sell some of these coolers to those that cant afford another £400 for the latest card <_<
You could claim further testing or something
Im still on an agp 6800 and i am still going to wait for dx10. Thank god ati put a new cooler on, but in the end im still going to pull it off and go wet, no matter what card im going to use.
wow, that's a nice card indeed Love the new cooler
not bad tbh, great news on the cooling side , sad news for people who want to sell there x1900xtx or who have just bought one.
i'll be holding tight for dx10 and a conroe shuttle
I was quite aware of this when I got my XTX. Terrible noise, but the low price I got mine at was too good of a deal.
Perhaps when they introduce mastercard/dongle-less Crossfire and DX10, I'll consider uprading again.
holding back until dx10, but this is realy nice, its more silent and more powerfull than its older brothers.
What a bloody good review, Tim, you've outdone yourself dude
Anyway, it'll be intresting to see if people who know are prepared to buy a card purely on faster memory basis, and the ring bus thang. Personally I'd be dubious, but the benchies are very intresting.
Overall, should anyone be buying extremely expensive cards with Vista around the corner? Personally I don't spend more then £200 on a graphics card, but with DX10 coming I'd be especially wary of buying anything expensive.
Oh 1 suggestion about your reviews, it would be nice at the end to give a short (like 1 paragraph) summery of the benchmarks, sure your review is thorough, but i'm not interested enough to read 12 pages of benchmarks, I'm sure lots of people will be, but i think that some people wont want to read it all
So read one or two, and then the conclusion?
Just registered to say hi and congratulate you on your great article. The best X1950 review I have read so far!
Greetings from Chile
that's what i do, but sometimes u might miss something, the first ones are oblivion then HL2:E1 but that may not give a good judge of everything
You've surpassed yourself, Tim. This is one of the best reviews I've read
Not at the higher screen resolutions it doesnt.
Still a great card though! Fab review... very concise, well written, and a great help if you're in the market for a new card. The kind of review that makes you proud to be part of bit-tech.
the cooler :O
Exactly, im sure its also the kind of review that makes Tim proud with the result of his hard work.
Very informative, cheers.
Looking at X1950XTX images I understood the truth behind "internet is for porn" statement.
and this graphics card is algo for porn because it has 3 X's.
