So what kind of preformance increases would I see over the x1900xt to the x1950xtx?

The xt is like 100 cheaper and I really don't know if it is worth the extra money I would have to spend on the x1950xtx. I looked on Tomshardware but their VGA charts are all screwed up..

I don't think it's worth the money. however, the X1950 Pro is coming out in the states soon, and I think it outpaces the X1900XT, and will be cheaper. It's meant to replace the X1900 GT.

I think it would be worth the $100. But if you are on a budget, that $100 would best be put toward a better motherboard/ram.

It seems the x1950GT is in fact out as ThaWaxShop had and sold one here, it uses a v2 of CF which does not need a special cable or a master card.

EDIT: Sorry he had the x1950PRO

outpaces the X1900XT?

The X1950PRO has 256MB, 36 Pixel shaders, 12 pipelines as oppose to the X1900XT's 512MB, 48 pixel shaders, 16 pipelines. Even if you compare the 256MB version of X1900XT, it will still be a bit faster

Yea the $100 dollars could be better spent definetly

If you plan on running at extremely high resolutions, possibly with a dual-card setup, the memory bandwidth boost of the Radeon X1950 XTX might be worth it. We like the improved cooling system, but this is really a pretty minor update to the X1900 XTX. From Extreme Tech
