the problem is that :
i have an opportunity to get rid of my GTO2 now (my friend want to buy it)
but the other problem is that where i live there's only the X1900GT available.
the X1950 and the X1900XT 256mb will be here in about 1 to 2 weeks from now :(
where can i see some kinda comparison between those cards ?
how much will an X1900XT256mb give me in 3dMARK05 over the X1950pro or the X1900GT for example ? 5-10% more performance ?

I think the X1900XT 256Mb is much faster (relatively) than the GT so I'd wait :)

Don't know anything about the X1950 Pro as it's not out and hasn't been benchmarked as far as I'm aware?

Although this is the 512xt and might have higher clocks the 256xt should perform pretty close.

yea...

that's the problem
i donno what to do cos the X1900XT is demanding realyyy good CPU to hit the 10-13K zone in 3dMARK 05
(saw a thread here about this)
so maby i'll get the same scores with an X1950PRO :rolleyes:
BUT for muchhh less money ...(like 70$ in here less than the X1900256)

no1 got some kinda x1950PRO BENCH tests ?
i know ppl always get those cards to TEST before they even comes out

From what i,ve read they are trying to pitch it against the 7900gt.

"Radeon X1950 XT will have 256MB of memory and should also work at a 2.0GHz frequency. It will use the fastest GDDR 4 memory and will naturally use a 256 bit interface. This card will likely be ATI's answer to the very sucessful Geforce 7900 GT series and should be in the same price range."

If thats the case then I think i'd still go for the x1900xt256 cos the x1900gt is just about in that league anyway.

ERRR ! i'm sooo confused ! just called my computer store to ask the date exactly when those cards suppose to arrive (x1900XT256 and X1950pro256) ...we takled a little bit and he told me that actualy the X1950PRO256 is better than the X1900XT256
donno what to do ...think i'll just wait 1...2...weeks after they'l arrive and then buy 1 of them after i see other ppl specs about the X1950PRO
:mad:
