That much power for $199... very, very tempting. :D I have a hunch that this video card will be in my system sometime in the near future!!

I'm guessing the 2900xt hasn't been selling well?

no it's just not capable of hitting this market. so they shrink down a few specs and launch it cheaper.

So, this is just an R600 with one quad disabled like the old x800 GTOs? Wonder if they will unlock... :D

If you look at the power connectors carefully it only has one 6pin. No 8pin = lesser power = lesser O.C.

Looks like we're finally going to see an nVidia price drop after what 10 months??

I am either getting this or the Pro, it depends on funds, but both appear to be good buys and $200 is easier for me to swing ATM than $270+.

To me it seems the 2900pro would be comparable in the 1950 lineup as the XT, the 2900GT would seem to lineup as the 1950pro, with good power, features and good price/performance ratio. The 2900pro has it too, which makes the decision hard...

Good info though!

Think I am going to move to the "Darkside" and get a 2900XT, I like the performance and I have found one £50 ($100US) below normal retail which aint a lot more than the Pro in the UK, the Pro looks good but the little of it that I have seen written to date suggests overclocks to at least stock XT proportions but suggests nowhere near the 800+Mhz core level.

not a 2900XT overclocked it wont, check out the 2006 scores, of course it's not all about benchmarks, I may just stay as I am until November and then look at the 2950 plus the new NVidia offerings, the 8900 is sposed to be out by then also.

Truly remarkable. ATI usually follows the suit of a strong card with even better mid range offerings that you can oc alot better.

BTW, would this card be any good, since it's priced at roughly 165 euros here in Finland? Will the 240 shaders and 600/800 mhz clocks eat the performance, or will it still be fast enough for Crysis as an example? :rockout:
