x1950 GT AGP = sweet deal...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
For anyone interested in the card, I just recently bought the Sapphire 256MB GDDR3 version for $210 CDN, and here are some comparisons for you. I couldn't run 3DMark03 as planned, but oh well. I managed to overclock from 500MHz core, 600MHz mem, to 621MHz core and 756MHz mem (1512MHz), heats get a little high, but I guess that's normal for these cards. My old x1600 ran hot too. Temps are mid 40's idle, to almost 80 (but not quite) load. I could only manage 4200ish in 3DMark06, but I'm working on that...also, any word on a volt mod? Also, be aware of how huge this card is...might not fit everyones case.

This is from ATITray


Prey, 1600x1200, 4xAA, 8xAF, V-Sync


GTR2, 1600x1200, 4xAA, 8xAF, no V-Sync


Remember though, low 3DMark06 is most likely my CPU, ram, and mobo, not the x1950 GT.

what does your Pro with oc'ed P4/DDR2 grab you in 3DMark06 Chapstick?

The 1950 AGP is a great card I had a HIS version and in benchmarks it could keep up with its PCI-E brothers.

Look at my Futuremark links

really good deal, I paid $210 CDN at a retail store! I was looking for a Pro, but for $100 CDN cheaper, I figured I might as well try out the GT, and I'm glad I did. I didn't want to dump an excessive amount of money into a rig that will be retiring in the near future, and I squeezed Pro type performance out of her with a bit of overclocking. I can't believe my old 754 rig is even capable of pushing descent frames at these resolutions without some major stuttering at least.

It's not even a Pro, well, it's the exact same as the Pro except 256MB instead of 512MB (I know the PCIe Pro's have variations of memory configs). Same pipes, shaders, etc., just less GDDR3 and, I think, slightly lower clocks. The GT seems to me to be the best bang for buck card in the AGP market, hands down.
