Gamers have a lot to be excited about as ATI (or should we call it AMD already?) announced its new flagship graphics card family, the Radeon X1950 series. The new Radeon X1950 XTX and Radeon X1950 CrossFire Edition work together or individually to deliver the ultimate gaming performance available today.
Along with high frame rates, the Radeon X1950 family delivers uncompromised image quality. Only ATI’s graphics processors provide the ability to combine FP16 High Dynamic Range effects with anti-aliasing to render the most realistic game environments possible. Sharp texture filtering capabilities also ensure that every detail in every scene is rendered. This combination of high performance and image quality results in the most immersive experience available today.
The Radeon X1950 employs the latest memory technology of GDDR4 to deliver blazing performance. With an effective data rate of 2 GHz, the new cards are easily capable of rendering fast frame rates at high resolutions, or maximizing image quality settings for gamers running at more mainstream resolutions. Accompanying the addition of GDDR4, the Radeon X1950 also introduces a new fansink that results in cooler, quieter operation.
On September 14th, both the Radeon X1950 XTX and Radeon X1950 CrossFire Edition will start shiping from retailers, system integrators, with an estimated street price of US$449 or EUR399 (VAT included) for each card.
