Some time ago we published an extensive test of ATI's newest high-end graphics card, the Radeon X1950 XTX . We could not be anything else than enthusiastic about these cards, as it is without question the fastest single GPU solution on the market today. Not only is the card very fast, it has some unique rendering features that can not be found on competetive solutions from nVidia, for instance the possibility to use HDR and FSAA (Full-Scene Anti Aliasing) together. The best feature about the X1950 XTX however has to be its price, as ATI promised to release the card at a retail price of 299 pounds. This promise has not been completely met, but cards are available and in the shops for around £ 325, which still offers a very good price/performance ratio.
In the test we mentioned the CrossFire capabilities of the card, but the MasterCard needed for such a setup was not available at the time. As we did manage to get hold of one of these cards recently, we could not wait to put the Crossfire edition to the test and present you with the results.
