    As in the title, am i right in thinking that the X1900XT 512mb is significantly faster than the X1950Pro 512mb?

    The benchmarks that I have seen seem to say so but I want to make sure. An unnamed retailer :rolleyes: has sent the 1950Pro as a replacement card for the 1900XT after 8 weeks of waiting, even though I asked for a refund... they say the specs are similar, I say I am not accepting a slower card than the one I originally paid for.
    Am I right?

    Kick them in the teeth and ask for a refund or a 1950 xtx as the pro is a worse card than your 1900xt your 1900xt has 48 thingymebobbypipelinesjobs and the 1950pro had only 36 and thus it is slower.

    So ask for a 1950 xtx as its got the faster ram,

    Make sure you explain that you won’t accept anything less than refund or like for like within 14days. Ask for address to send complaint letter on recorded delivery outlining as such to scare them into action; as no company likes a formal complaint as it leaves very little room for them to b******* or delay further. ;)

    It sure is, definately get onto them about is as they can only give you equal, or better performance, x1950pro is less, its a downgrade.

    They have to send back something equal or better.

    As the X1950 Pro is WORSE by about 20% dude to the 1/4 pipes/shaders then it is not a legal replacement.

    They have to send back either a X1900XT/X1900XTX/X1950XT 512mb or a X1950XTX atleast.

    Cheers guys.
    I have been asking for a refund for 4 weeks. I didn't get a proper response until I threatened to inform Trading Standards. Then all I got was a shipping confirmation of the 1950Pro.
    It has been a total pain in the backside and I won't be buying from them again. It is a shame because they have always been very efficient and helpful before this. Ah well, we live and learn I guess.

    Even an X1950XT would not be equal since that is only 256mb. I would demand X1950XTX 512mb and nothing less. :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Like I said. I am not naming names as i don't want a warning/suspension/ban. Just wanted to ask if people thought I was right to demand a better replacement than the 1950Pro.... which is seems I am.

    Thanks for all the help.
    Thread can get closed or whatever now :)
