Sapphire Radeon X1950 PRO Dual video card review

Elite Bastards
25 March 2012
  • Conclusion: We already know that a single Radeon X1950 PRO board offers great performance, and two Radeon X1950 PROs in CrossFire offer superb performance - With that in mind, the abilities of Sapphire's Radeon X1950 PRO Dual were never in doubt, with the board offering CrossFire level performance, and even a little better in some cases due to the mixture of 512MB per GPU on-board and the internal PCI Express switch taking the bottleneck away from the motherboard on occasion.

  • Excerpt: Nowadays high-end flagship video cards may price an arm and a leg, but that section of the market isn”t where the actual money is. The big money is made in the low-end and mid-range (or mainstream) segments of the market. It”s simple really: most folks shopping for a video card have budgeted $100-250, although comparatively fewer have $400 budgets for just graphics. A few months ago, ATI dropped a newly pixel-pushing soldier into the battle for mid-range supremacy.

  • Excerpt: Today's high-end flagship video cards may cost an arm and a leg, but that segment of the market is not where the real money is. The big money is made in the low-end and mid-range (or mainstream) segments of the market. It's simple really: most people shopping for a video card have budgeted $100-250, while relatively few have $400+ budgets for just graphics.
  • Pros:   Great price / performance ratio,   Native CrossFire support,   Not too noisy,   Dual DVI,   Fairly priced
  • Cons:   The Da Vinci Code game?,   Warranty not as good as some of the competition,   Not a strong overclocker

Sapphire Radeon X1950 Pro Dual

  • Excerpt: Graphics processors are, and have always been, extremely parallel in nature. This sentiment has been expressed time and time again by various GPU architects from all of the major graphics chip designers. If you want additional performance, in the vast majority of cases, you can gain it by adding on more rendering pipelines or a second (identical) graphics processing unit.

Sapphire X1950 Pro Dual

16 April 2007
  • Summary: In a time where AMD/ATI is starving the whole ATI Radeon ecosystem by the lack of new products, Sapphire is the only company who did the right thing and started thinking outside the box to develop a new competitive product based on what's available today. When I first heard about the X1950 Pro Dual I expected it to be a PR stunt to draw some attention to the X1950 Pro line of products. But after testing the final board I am surprised by how well it works.
  • Pros: Good price / performance, Excellent performance, Supports Quad-CrossFire in the future
  • Cons: Not as fast as other products from NVIDIA, May be obsolete soon by next-gen ATI products, Power consumption

  • Excerpt: Overall, this videocard is an excellent replacement for anyone trying to get an extra year or so out of their exist AGP enabled computer. For a small US$180 investment, you can game with the rest of them and enjoy comfortable framerates from a computer that some companies are trying to convince you is "out of date" which you know is completely false.

  • Conclusion: The x1950 Pro sits very comfortably just ahead of the 8600GT in performance and it’s price reflects that. However, even though the latter card is nipping at the heels of the Pro in terms of value for money, the x1950 still manages to remain the king of the budget gamer cards. If you are looking for good performance at a reasonable price and don’t plan to overclock then the x1950 Pro is a great choice.
  • Pros: Good value for performance, Only single 6pin needed
  • Cons: Cooler worse than stock ATI

  • Excerpt: Hot on the heels of the X1950 XTX comes the Sapphire X1950 Pro. Designed to compete against nVidia's 7900GS and 7900GT, the Pro comfortably slots into the enthusiast sector of the market.

  • Summary: The Sapphire ATI Radeon X1950 Pro is a fast, efficient card, and a worthy adversary to heavily overclocked products such as the Gainward 7900 GS Golden Sample. There are better alternatives, but this is a decent offering.
  • Pros: Consumes less power and produces less heat, doesn't require an extreme cooling system, minimal noise, extra memory
  • Cons: Architecture is hardly a quantum leap forward from its predecessor
