    Radeon X1950 at launch will come in two flavors: a high clock "XTX" version, and a CrossFire version. Both cards feature 512MB GDDR4, and the only major difference between the two is that the CrossFire X1950 houses the composite engine and input interfaces for CrossFire. Just yesterday, ATI issued an advisory to its partners claiming "Clock frequencies for RADEON X1950 family products are pending and will be provided at a later date." However, in March of this year ATI released a new policy for AIB partners to overclock X1000 series cores with some discretion. While we can already confirm some partners are planning 650MHz core versions, there is still a distinct possibility that higher clocked cards are also in the works. Memory clock frequencies have not been announced either, though Samsung announced its GDDR4 is already capable of 3.2GHz in 8x512Mbit configurations.

    ATI's advisory documentation claims the Radeon X1950XTX will begin sample availability on August 7, with the CrossFire sampling beginning exactly one week later. Sampling of the Radeon X1900XT 256MB will begin immediately.

    Compunut: this will obliterate the 7950 , it used GDDR4 , thas alot faster than GDDR3

    well at stock speeds i think it will be pretty close , but these things will overclock like mad, and they have a better and quieter cooler , this thing is going to rock:rock:

    what a pointless card, its just a test bed for 80nm and gddr4 and people will still pay for it.

    As for beating the 7950GX2 no it wont, it might do if sli isnt working properly in a game but a 7950GX2 is far too powerful no matter what memory the x1950 has because memory isnt the bottleneck for these cards in AA and HDR intensive games.

    Looking at the specs of 650/2000. Its not a great deal faster than the current x1900xt really and with the G80 due in september and the r600 not long after, you'd probably have to be an idiot to get one.

    Nice looking card!

    If you already have an X1900XT or an 7900GTX\7950GX2, if not then go for it!

    this things going to be seriously fast for a single card, GDDR4 is seriously fast memory and the overclocking potential is going to be amazing
