ATI Graphics Buyer's Guide Spring 2006, Part 1

Gecube Radeon X1900 XTX

This card follows ATI's reference design; both the fast GPU and the memory are covered by a large cooling solution, and warm exhaust air is expelled from the computer case via air slits at the back of the card. Due to its size and weight, the massive cooler requires two expansion slots and secure mounting. The GPU is ideal for games with lots of eye candy that make extensive use of shader effects. This is a result of the enormous number of pixel shader units included in the new design, letting the X1900 XTX shine in games like F.E.A.R. and Oblivion.

Gecube's Radeon X1900 XTX features two digital DVI connectors, as well as a video output for S-Video or HDTV.
