PowerColor Radeon X1900 GT 256MB -
In today's review we'll be having a look at a new product from PowerColor, this particular brand has been around for quite a few years now and the true ancient gurus among you will even remember a few product reviews from them in the past, the 3dfx era. Tul, the actual company behind the PowerColor line of products, asked us if we would be interested in reviewing some of their products a while ago, and so we did. Over the years Powercolor has grown to be a majestic brand in the industry.
Roughly 3 weeks ago ATI released yet another graphics card onto the market that comes from the successful X1000 series of graphics cards. It's targeted at the high-end segment yet in the lower price range - the product is being positioned against NVIDIA's 299 dollar GeForce 7900 GT.
Today we'll be peeking at the rather lovely Radeon X1900 GT from this company. So here it is my fellow guru's, a review on ATI's latest 12-pipe mid-range product based on the R580 silicon, which quite frankly is a very credible graphics card as you'll learn in this article. The card features 36 Pixel Shaders and eight vertex Shaders yet has been massively castrated to twelve pixel pipelines.
The product offers up-to three times the performance of the X1600 Pro yet carries a pricetag of sub 299 USD. Mesmerizing ? Yeah I agree .. absolutely.
With that being said I'd like to invite you to hit the next page where we'll start off with a little technical information on the new Radeon X1900 GT, discuss it's pricing followed by a little photo shoot, after which we'll startup a large benchmark session to see how well it behaved performance wise.
Does that sound interesting ? Good .. next page please.
We test and review the PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 SCS3 today. This stock clocked Radeon HD 7850 is cooled passively, meaning it has no fans tool it down. That also means it's rather silent as it does not make any noise. But what about temperatures then you must be wondering ?

PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 PCS+ review
PowerColor is the first in our line-up of R7950 reviews with a customized model. It is the PCS version that clocks in at a cool 880 MHz on the graphics core with it's memory clocked default at an effective data rate of 5000 MHZ. Armed witha custom cooler it is silent, and even cooler compared to the reference model.
PowerColor Radeon 6870 PCS+ review
This is the R6870 PCS+ version where PowerColor pre-overclocks the card to 940 MHz (900 reference) and clock the memory at 4400 MHz coming from 4200 MHz. This should give the card a nifty nice boost.
