Sapphire Radeon X1950 PRO or Asus EAX1950PRO - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Why would the Asus version not support dongless Crossfire? Its using the exact same cores with integrated crossfire as the others, its got the bridge connector clip, and on top of that you don't even need the connector bridge to use dongless crossfire just 2 PCIe slots and driver support, at a cost of some performance however.

Dongle = Bridge to me sorry guys. And I would get the HIS version if you can it has the highest clock next to the Gigabyte version (its OC'd to my overclock from factory) and has the best cooler as it exhuast air out the back.

Good point. The HIS version is rather Overclockable and comes with a Nice stock HSF. But Bypass the Asus .

Allright, go see for yourself then:

http://www.asus.com/products3.aspx?l...Radeon%20X1950

See the normal card? See the crossfire X1950Pro? Well, that is what I meant.

Go for the Sapphire, because the Sapphire has better (more overclockable) memory..here is a pic:
this memory is Samsung blah blah blah G12 (don't feel like typing all of those alphanumeric characters......check out the pic and type the set into the search engine at Samsung's website. Also read this thread:
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...=121382&page=4
From another website, and these guys are discussing the differences in the cards. I am happy with mine, just discovered why I couldn't OC very much

If I am not mistaken they are all using the same memory chips. I would remove my cooler but the MX-1 paste on there is just as good as AS5 and last time I did this I got thermal paste everywhere it was like sand.
