To gauge a baseline on 3D performance, we ran a quick 3DMark test as seen above. As you can see, the Radeon X1950 GT card scores quite well, considering the price tag, right on par with the GeForce 7900 GT. The 7900 GT is a smidge faster than the 7900 GS which is currently available on the market, so the X1950 GT is getting off to a good start. Even better, when the GPU on the card is overclocked, performance can meet levels of the GeForce 7950 GT, which is about $100 more expensive than the X1950 GT. Let's look at some real-world titles.
