HUH, say what? Has anyone seen one of these cards?

I thought Digiti-lifes new charts had the X1950XT 256MB in it, but then clicked and saw this card. They also have the XTX with the 2.0GHz GDDR4.

It looked like they just underclocked a XTX to XT speeds. But searching a bit more, and ATI's site seems to suggest that 512MB GDDR4 X1950XT's clocked 625/1800 do exist.

But Gecubes site only mentions a 256MB version of the X1950XT. And all 512MB X1950XT searches come back with old results where it was a typo and should have said XTX.

If the ATI pic is to be trusted, they have the nice XTX cooler on them. I feel like a mistake has been made, but who knows. Again, it seems to me Digit-life just underclocked a XTX to XT speeds...which would be useless info. I was hoping they would have reviewed and added the X1950XT 256MB (625/1800 GDDR3) to their charts. I still want to see a decent review showing exactly how it stacks up to the 512MB X1900XT and/or XTX.

Has anyone seen one of these cards? Thinks it's a typo, an underclocked XTX, or a new silently released card?

Not sure if I've seen it or not, wasn't keeping an eye open for them, but if I do, will pass along the savings.... err... info to you. :mrgreen:

Hey, thx for the reply, even if it was a sympathy bump. :tongue:

I'm just curious where Digit-life pulled that card from for their newest charts, and why they benched that one not the 256MB version that is widely available. Maybe ATI made a few XTX's downlocked to 1.8GHz mem and labeled as press sample X1950XT's. That way it looks between a X1950XTX and X1900XTX and people just buy the 256MB version assuming they are the same. Who knows, my curiousity stems from the lack of X1950XT 256MB / X1900XT(X) 512MB comparisons. I mean in my eyes, the X1950XT is the hottest buy for those who don't go all out for a G80. Yet, the big review sites have ignored it completely.

Just an update. It seems there will be a 512MB version of the X1950XT. Also concerns me when they say "fiddle". Fiddling with the amount of RAM is one thing, and even a positive thing. Same with putting on say an XTX cooler. But I hope we don't start seeing 6 different clock speed variations out there (mostly crippled from reference) like we do with some models. :roll:
