Today we've launched an analysis on two mid-range graphics cards from HIS based on the AMD-ATI Radeon X1650 XT graphics processor.     HIS Radeon X1650 XT IceQ Turbo and Radeon X1650 XT iSilence II... Read more...
  About a month ago, we had the privilege of reviewing HIS' Radeon X1950 Pro, a mainstream oriented graphics card that performed well, but we felt ultimately came up short against the similarly priced GeForce 7950 GT.  The model we received was outfitted with an oversized cooler dubbed the IceQ3 Turbo, came overclocked by default, and supported CrossFire natively using internal ribbon cables, much like SLI with NVIDIA's cards. Although we found much to praise regarding the performance of the X1950 Pro, we found that the lack of availability of HIS products in the reseller market, combined with the possibility of DirectX 10 becoming much more important...

Hello Everyone. We've just posted a new article at HotHardware.com in which we evaluate the features and performance of Sapphire's top-of-the-line Radeon X1950 XTX. Here's a snip from the piece... "Today at HotHardware.com, we're going to take a look at Sapphire's take on ATI's flagship, aptly named the Sapphire Radeon X1950 XTX. On the hardware level, there is very little to differentiate this card from ATI's own branded Radeon X1950 XTX, but Sapphire does sweeten their offering with a more generous accessory bundle and a relatively competitive price."

While we all sit and wait to see what AMD/ATI have in store for us with their next-gen, DX10-class R600, the Radeon X1950 XTX remains ATI's current flagship desktop GPU. In light of NVIDIA's excellent GeForce 8 series of cards, the Radeon X1950 XTX has certainly lost some of its initial luster, but nevertheless it's still one of the more powerful graphics cards currently available. Today at HotHardware.com, we're going to take a look at Sapphire's take on ATI's flagship, aptly named the Sapphire Radeon X1950 XTX. On the hardware level, there is very little to differentiate this card from ATI's own branded Radeon X1950 XTX, but Sapphire does sweeten their offering... Read more...

Marco and I are just back from CES and while we're a little weary from all the walking and a red-eye flight from hell back to the east coast, we're on the mend, thankfully.   We had some behind-close-doors time with the folks at Sapphire and got to take a look at some of their new products not yet released to market.  One that caught our particular interest was their dual GPU Radeon X1950 Pro Dual card that utilizes a pair of X1950 Pro GPUs on a single card CrossFire setup.  Check it out.  Though it is a monster design, it's pretty impressive.    In addition, the card also employs a full 512MB per GPU for a total of 1GB per card....

Hello Everyone!  We're wanted let you all know that we've just posted a new article where we evaluate the features and performance of HIS' Radeon X1950 XT IceQ3 Turbo.  Here's a snip from the piece: "Today, we will be checking out HIS' take on the Radeon X1950 XT, the HIS X1950XT IceQ3 Turbo. As the name implies, the HIS X1950 XT uses the company's IceQ3 cooling apparatus which performs better than the "stock" model and is much quieter to boot. The Turbo in the name also means that the card is guaranteed to overclock to a certain speed, in this case a guaranteed core overclock to the stock XTX speed of 650MHz." Read The Rest Right Here!...

A few weeks ago, we looked at the HIS Radeon X1950 Pro IceQ3 Turbo, a mainstream graphics card set to do battle with the GeForce 7900GS in the $200 price segment. Based on the RV570 GPU, the X1950 Pro brought a host of features to the table including native CrossFire. While X1950 Pro is a good performer for a great price, some of us were left wishing for more. For a short while, those of us willing to spend an additional $50-$100 for a bit more power than the X1950 Pro could offer had to turn to NVIDIA. That is, until the Radeon X1950 XT was released. Today, we will be checking out HIS' take on the Radeon X1950 XT, the HIS X1950XT IceQ3 Turbo. As the name implies, the HIS X1950 XT uses the... Read more...

While NVIDIA is marching forward with its DirectX 10 capable GeForce 8800 series, ATI is still mum on their next generation graphics cards. Which is somewhat surprising, as one would think this time of year would be ideal for new product announcements. But while Vista is due for a broad release in January '07, games that fully exploit the features of DirectX 10 won't be commonplace for quite some time.  The rest of the market is still full of great material that is OpenGL or DirectX 9-based leaving the current line of ATI graphics cards as a viable options for all but the most demanding of enthusiasts. Today, we are going to evaluate two cards from ASUS built around ATI's... Read more...
The folks at DigiTimes had a conversation with Edward Chow of AMD/ATI, who seems to think that demand for DX10-class graphics cards won't pick up until mid-to-late next year. "With no boost from DirectX 10, the graphics card market will stay put in the first half of 2007, while watching Vista's acceptability, according to Chow. In the second half of 2007, DirectX 10-compliant products will see demand pick up, so the competition will heat up, with more games and blue-laser products hitting the market, he added." He's probably right for the vast majority of the market.  But we bet there are more than one of you power user's out there itching to get your hands on a G80 as soon as... Read more...
Hello Everyone. We're just writing to let you all know that we've posted a new article where we evaluate the features and performance of HIS' Radeon X1950 Pro IceQ3 Turbo. Here's a snip from the piece: "Today, we will be looking at HIS' take on ATI's mid-range beast, the Radeon X1950 Pro IceQ3 Turbo. This card comes with higher core and memory speeds than the original specs call for, and it sports a large heatsink/fan designed by Arctic Cooling." Read The Rest Right Here.... Read more...
  ATI made quite a splash a few weeks ago, with the introduction of the Radeon X1950 Pro. The RV570 GPU at the heart of the X1950 card is manufactured on TSMC's 80nm node. It's equipped with 36 pixel shader processors, 8 vertex shader units and 12 texture units. ATI's reference design calls for a 575MHz GPU clock and with 1.38GHz memory, but the card we'll be featuring here today is clocked quite a bit higher than this. The most interesting feature of the Radeon X1950 Pro, however, is Native CrossFire support. ATI has done away with the "Master" and "Slave" cards, and has incorporated the discreet compositing engine previously found on their CrossFire... Read more...
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. It's simple really: most people shopping for a video card have budgeted $100-250, while relatively few have $400+ budgets for just graphics. Less than two months ago, ATI dropped a new pixel-pushing soldier into the battle for mid-range supremacy. That soldier came in the form of the Radeon X1950 Pro, and it fights the good fight for about $200. Today, we'll be looking at Sapphire's version of the X1950 Pro. One of the coolest features of the X1950 Pro is its new... Read more...

Not long ago, when we reviewed MSI's GeForce 7600 GT, the closest ATI-based competitor available was the Radeon X1600 Pro.  It was far from an apples-to-apples comparison from a technical standpoint, however.  While both models sported the same number of Pixel and Vertex Shaders and had similar prices, the X1600 Pro's performance was hampered by fewer ROPs and DDR2 memory which was clocked significantly lower that the GeForce 7600GT's GDDR3 complement. With the recent release of the Radeon X1650 Pro, however, ATI now offers a card that matches up better to the GeForce 7600 GT, with faster GDDR3 memory and a higher GPU clock speed. The question remains,...

  Although the mobile market is full of rather bland and painfully similar designs, there are a handful of notebook vendors which have created unique products to stand out from the crowd. Typically acting as the company's flagship notebook, these systems generally offer performance which is equally as impressive as their sleek designs and aesthetics. In similar fashion, ASUS has worked closely with the famed Italian automobile manufacturer Lamborghini to bring the new VX1 notebook to market. Blending the performance ideals of each company with the bold, unique and racy designs of Lamborghini, the ASUS VX1 offers a creative new spin on the thin and light notebook platform. ...
