I have just received confirmation that part number 11095-00-50R from Sapphire will be a Radeon X1950Pro running at 650MHz core clock and will use GDDR4 2GHz memory. This will seriously give the X1950Pro an extra kick to pass X1900XT / 7900GT performance... All for £149 at dabs.com (UK)...


Here is the info from Sapphire....

Does it matter - all GDDR4 is supposed to OC like crazy

Am I missing the extra cost somewhere... This costs only £15 ($25) more than the bog standard X1950Pro, for that you get GDDR4 and 650MHz clock, seems worth it IMHO

dabs.com only has 4 versions of the x1950Pro all using DDR-3 mrmory and a mem. clock of around 1.4ghz

in the name of the product and the spec. it again says GDDR3. i have yet to find a x1950Pro that uses GDDR4, only seen the XT versions using it.

did a google search using mfr#: 11095-00-50R. it only returns versions using GDDR3.

Problem, their stock X1950Pro is £139=US$260...


The dabs price includes VAT (tax) - when you remove the VAT the price comes out as

Stock Radeon X1950Pro = £114.24 = $215
Ultimate Radeon X1950Pro = £126.89 = $239

Note we never get prices as good as the US :(  So Dabs price is about the best in the UK ATM...

PS I am also having some doubts... If this really is GDDR4 I am sold, but the complete lack of website material is making me jumpy..

And I can get a flight to the US for about $600, so the total for the X1950 from zipzoomfly.com will be over $800, bargin!

X1950XTX is clocked at 650/2000(DDR)
Coincidence? I think not.

Why did Sapphire tech support confirm that this part number is, quote..

"650 and 2G DDR4 is totaly correct"
