How powerful are the new X1950 Graphic Processor Unit video cards? "Better check to see if your power supply can handle it" powerful, and that's no exaggeration! Some of the new boards require PCI Express; this board lets those of us with an AGP 4x/8x slot play, too.
Not that this is a second-class citizen in Video World, with half a gigabyte of memory, 256 bit wide memory interface, a 1.4 GHz memory clock (580 MHz GPU clock), High Dynamic Range (HDR) displays for even more realistic imagery, and a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1600. Two DVI ports and an HDTV/S-Video output give display flexibility (think of your favorite application on your big screen tv!) and the large fan keeps it cool without busting your eardrums.
Speed and power. Brilliance, high contrast, and vivid colors. The versatility to plug it into your monitor, your tv, or your video projector. You're going to like what you see.
