Today ATI debuts its Radeon X1900 series. Upgraded with 48 pixel shader processors, it's designed to tackle next generation games and blow away the competition. PowerColor charged into our labs with their Radeon X1900 XT and we put it to test to see what this new GPU can deliver.
The penultimate in our series of articles focusing on the Radeon X1800 XT 512MB from various brands, we have with us today the MSI RX1800XT-VT2D512E. Clocked at the default 625/1500MHz, it looks to be a typical Radeon X1800 XT 512MB card, but is it? Read on.
Sapphire has kindly bestowed on us two of its fastest Radeon X1800 XT 512MB cards. The normal version is clocked at the default frequencies but it is the overclocked Platinum Edition that we are looking forward to. Let's see how these two cards fare in the last of our Radeon X1800 XT articles.
Coming up next in our series of ATI Radeon X1800 XT reviews, we have an overclocked contender from HIS, appropriately dubbed the HIS Radeon X1800 XT 512MB OC Edition. With its blazing fast speeds, this looks to be a challenger for the fastest Radeon X1800 XT title as well. Read on to find out how it fared.
Overclocked by a healthy margin, Gigabyte's GV-RX18T512V-B Turbo Force Edition is tied for the honor of being the fastest Radeon X1800 XT 512MB in the retail scene. It may look like your reference card with a Gigabyte decal but it is certainly a lot faster. Read on as we uncover its speed secrets.
The first in our ongoing series of ATI Radeon X1800 XT reviews, the ASUS EAX1800XT TOP is also quite a different animal. Overclocked by default, it is one of the fastest Radeon X1800 XT cards and as we found out, one of the quietest and the coolest. Read on as we examine the latest from ASUS' TOP lineup.
In line with its budget image, GeCube sends us its normal version of the ATI flagship Radeon X1800 XT 512MB, the GC-X1800XTD-VIE3 in a typically humble box. As usual, GeCube offers a rather thin bundle but read on to see if it can perform up to the mark.
NVIDIA's GeForce 7800 GTX 512MB not only doubles its frame buffer but increases its core and memory clock speeds, making it the most powerful graphics card on paper now. XFX has one of these steroids boosted cards and we put it to a battery of benchmarks to validate this claim.
Though SLI for notebooks hasn't arrived yet, MSI has taken that concept and applied it to the desktop using standard MXM modules. If low heat/noise output and reduced power consumption are important factors for your rig, especially in SLI, then you have to check what MSI has cooked up!
We've got an exclusive world preview of something terribly exciting that's happening at MSI's booth at CES. It's a card that will enable you to configure SLI using two MXM modules. Sounds impossible? Well, it's true and we have pictures to show!
