It's illogical to buy an X1950XTX also. The real smarties bought themselves x1900XT/XTXs two months ago.

Why didnt Neo oc the E6400 to remove more of the cpu bottleneck on the card to see if it REALLY brings out the performance of the card? Unless you guys really did and noticed that the performance difference wasnt really felt. I think its still a nice card all and all though DX10 titles arent running amuck and I dont have that $450 to throw at it. Kind of reminds me when the 6800s were released when SM3 was starting out... gosh I hated my 6800ultra with a passion. :/ I think I still want to pick up a X1950pro and wait till the R600 debut just to see the two go at it then make my purchase decision. I dont want to jump the gun again and lose out on possibly a better opportunity.

I was planning to buy this month -___- next month at latest, but I cant find one on newegg in stock. Did they cut production?

I can see myself waiting until the generation after these new cards. Hopefully we'll have a die shrink and the silly power requirments will go down a bit and there'll be less heat as well.

The 6400 was oc'd to 2.66Ghz, though technically I think we should have pushed it as far as it would go (>3Ghz) b/c now we're going to have to do that for the GTX review.

X1950PRO would be a good stopgap to see how R600 stacks up against the G80. Now that NVIDIA have shown their cards, ATI has a chance to try to one-up them so it would definitely be interesting.

[H]ard|OCP did a review, the 8800 GTS and GTX destroyed the 1950XT. Heres the review:

im getting the GTS version as soon as it comes in stock at www.ebuyer.com

the fact that the games i want are going to be direct x10 is a major factor for me...thank god i kept with my X550 for a while.

seriously mate, this thread is 5 months old or so.

Please don't post in threads that old unless it is really necessary. i.e. user system threads etc...

And lots has changed since this thread has begun.

For a start.

Kilgore mentioned a die shinkage.

The G90 core coming out later this year while have a 65mm core.

Th R600 may have the same sizec ore.


And the G100 coming out in Q1 2008 for nVidia will be even more effecient.

The 8800 card prices have gone down.



This thread is old and out of date, please don't bump it.

This thread was last responded to about 4 months ago so its not too old SSJ... I second ANT.

Also R600 is gonna be 65nm which was why it was delayed so AMD could make some power savings, ramp up the core speed possibly, and prevent transistor leakage that was heavy @ 80nm.

well in all fairness...i searched altavista and this was one of very few i could find on this card..on altavista you cannot define how old threads are so ner ner..and i have a right to comment if its 2 years old, 3 months, 1 day or whatever.

on altavista all you find is the thread.. then you can look at the posts in the thread.. and it clearly says november 2006 on the post before your first in this thread.


And secondly, the mods will yell at you if you start bumping up threads 2 years old...

There are rules against that. So you DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT to bump up any thread you want.


In fact, i think you had to agree to compling with the rules when you joined... so you really shoujld have had a look...
You should seriously read the rules before making a comment like that (3 years...pff)
