Showing 1-5 of 5
20 April 2007
Summary: 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.
Pros: High-End Performance with Mid-Range GPUs, Dual-GPU Cooling System Quieter Than Single GPU X1950 Pro Cards, Internal Crossfire Connectivity, HDCP Support
Cons: Huge PCB Wont Fit In Most Cases, Wont Work Correctly on Nvidia Motherboards, No DirectX 10 Support
Summary: 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.
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
