I've read that 5900 XT is the same as 5900 SE ... Is this true ?

Thanks!

    I meant nVidia of course.

    No! The 5900 SE doesn't "really" exist. It is just a product from various
    retailers who want to sell you a card with cheap memory and lower
    clockrates.

    Geforce FX 5900 SE:
    Core: 350 Mhz
    Memory: 700 Mhz

    Geforce FX 5900:
    Core: 400 Mhz
    Memory: 850 Mhz

    Geforce FX 5900 Ultra:
    Core: 450 Mhz
    Memory: 850 Mhz

    The 5900 XT should be pretty equal to the FX 5900, maybe a bit slower. You
    should also have a look at this link:

    I thought there was an SE that had only 64-bit memory. I don't think
    it's an official NVIDIA design though, like the XT. Like the other
    posts said, it's probably a hacked down XT.

    No. The 5900SE was basically the moniker that evga and pny gave to their
    5900XT boards. They are basically downclocked 5900s, clocked at about
    390/700. Some were clocked at 400/700. They all have the full 256 bit
    memory.

    No. The XT version is faster than the stock 5900, and the SE version is
    slower than the stock version.

    Nvidia has used XT for slower models, ATi uses XT for their faster models.

    I have a 5900SE in my other gaming rig,but really not sure,i think the XT
    has alittle more power over the SE.

    Hi,

    Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm waiting for my new EVGA FX 5900 SE
    to arrive. Got it for real cheap and it also includes the Call of Duty
    game!! From what I've read and from the specs, it's damn near the same as
    the XT version! 8-)

    Thanks again for all your great help!

    Daniel
