X1950 fam :P

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
i was just interested in how many people here have an X1950 family card .

and whats the highest oc you guys were able to get

i had to go cheap and get the GT but so far i think it was a hardcore deal as i got a pretty decent OC out of it with ati tool .27b(i think it was)

stock speeds are 500gpu and 600(1200 effective)mem

i was able to hit 634.5gpu and 756.5(1513 effective)mem

i can maybe go a bit higher but i really have no need to as i can play almost any game at high(max sometimes) settings .

and i have the 256MB version not the 512

how high have you guys been able to get and what kinda rigs do you use for cooling .

im running mine on stock. and i only oc it when i play games so most of the time and for everyday use its running at stock and it performs great.
cheep build :D

I got one, and I never got it to OC for anything. It still performs great, though!

I've got the sapphire xt 256, overclocked to 648/1000, up from 621/900. Seems to work great for my uses still.

actually i was kinda surprised by the decent oc i got from the GT.

kinda blew my mind as i was not expecting such a jump in performance from such a cheep card .

sapphire makes some pretty nice products and ati still rox my sox .

the only thing ati needs to get better at is in its linux support

i still use nvidia for linux


and i was also wondering if any of you guys have had any success using the ati avivo video converter?

every time i convert a video the picture is all out of sinc and distorted with massive amounts of jaggies and weird colors :O.

is the 1950 fam eqivalent with the avivo converter?

also @ weezy .

i would go with a dx10 card as thay will soon be semi affordable . but the 1950's are a nice bunch and are a bit underrated for the amount of power thay can push out . the only downside to the cards is that thay are freaking huge :O, i have like 1/2 inch of clearance frome my drive bay so its kinda crowded in my case and i have a full atx tower .


and how sexeh do my clocks look

I also have a Sapphire X1950XT 256MB card and currently have it at a pretty modest 675MHz/945MHz (GPU/Mem). But that's also because I'm only using the Catalyst Control Center's Overdrive to do my overclocking. For me the stock voltages for my overclock work fine for my gaming needs.

I have an X1950 Pro (see sig.). I couldn't get it OC for crap, but with the BIOS peg link setting on my P5B set to "Faster" along with using Warcat drivers, I'm cranking out 7900GS/7950GT speeds. 3dMark05 = 11,289 & 3dMark06 = 5,633.

Can't complain at all.

X1950Pro. Doesn't OC for crap, though...not even 1mhz on the core.

That's odd, mine does.. I've got mine up 100MHz on the core and about 70MHz on Mem..

Have you tried Driver-level overclocking rather than Low-level? Driver worked for me.
