Odd, one 1 x DVI. Absolutely useless at running 2 x TFTs.

(Dont tell me to use DVI on one and VGA one the other... there will never be color consistency).

How does a 1950GT compare with a 1950Pro? Better or worse?

It is identical to a x1950Pro, but with lower clock(spelled right this time :)) speeds.

The x1950Pr's core is at 575MHz and the memory is at 690MHz(1380 effective).

isnt the x1950pro agp the most high end agp solution ? :ohwell:

still all good for agp users if it is slightly cheaper than the x1950pro, im presuming that would oc to a pro and beyond no problems?

The PCB looks plain because there is usually a large single slot heatsink covering that area, so nothing really can go on the PCB there.

Its got to be around the same as a 256MB X1950PRO Id think - £125ish ?

For the price of a new, highest end AGP card, it makes more sense to me for people to actually move on to pci-e. It is time...

I believe some of the AGP x1950Pros have a PCI-E power connector also. Some have dual molex connectors.

But the article says this is the most high end AGP card ever, is that just the manufacturer speaking or ATi? cause if its ATi then it must be faster than the 1950Pro and if its the manufacturer and they also ship 1950Pro AGP then again surely it must be faster?

Does not make sense to me with the same hardware specs as the Pro but lower clocks? WTF?

This card has the r570le chip in it. I believe it uses less power than the pro, and it doesn't overclock as well.

Im rather impressed. I love the plethora of cards coming out, so you can pick and choose what you want to go with. Covers the whole Gamut of pc buyers. Now, Im just wondering if this is related to the DOJ calling out DAaMiT and Nvidia or what?

How come? This makes no sense at all.

A PCI-e 512 MB X1950PRO is around £150, an AGP 512MB X1950PRO is around £20-£30 more. I know the prices in the US are better than here in the UK but Im pretty sure £30 does not buy you a new mobo, RAM and CPU. ;)
