Crimson Axe: ATi X1950XTX

Here are some pictures of ATi’s upcoming X1950XTX. Our pictures compare the physical difference between the X1900XTX and the X1950XTX. The overall simpler PCB layout of the X1950XTX points towards a less power consuming card. Overclockers should be rather assured, GPU Core voltage can be adjusted via Overclockers’ Tool and so can Memory Voltage (it is reported wrongly however), even though the regulators on the card are slightly different. Take a look at the pictures, meanwhile, testing in progress…

I really like the look of the new cooler, it casts a crimson shade onto your rig:

The back of the X1950XTX:

For the techies, let’s compare the physical difference between the X1900XTX and the X1950XTX, X1950 on top, X1900 below:

Simpler PCB layout on the 1950 it seems, first this component is missing from the 1950:

A MOSFET on the X1900 is not found on the X1950:

A little less SMD components on the top right of the back of the X1950:

At the front, other than the apparent shift of the fan header to the end of the card, X1900XTX with 7 FETs:

X1950 with only 6 FETs:

All these are pointing towards a less power consuming card. Overclockers should be rather assured, that third parry tweakers such as ATiTool should work when it comes to voltage adjustments since the voltage regulators are the same, if not present versions, then updated versions. Testing in progress…
