ATI has launched the first graphics card sporting GDDR4 memory and Radeon X1950XTX will now carry the weight until the next generation graphics circuits arrive. We've taken a closer look at X1950XTX to see how it performs with its new memory technology.
The Radeon X1950XTX is ATI's newest top-of-the-line graphics card aimed to become the new king of the hill, taking the hill from NVIDIA's Geforce 7950GX2. Something that might prove to be a challenge as the 7950GX2 has two cores and double memory buses at its end. In part one of the review we will focus on a single graphics card as we are yet to take delivery of a master card. Part two will be completing with a multi GPU review.
The X1950XTX comes with two new features, a new cooler and new memory. Is the new cooler as good as it looks? Stay tuned as we take a closer look at both and check out how increased memory bandwidth really will affect the performance. Earlier overclocking tests have shown that it's precisely what the R580, and not least Crossfire, needs.
