Radeon X1950 XTX Leaked

ATI has remained largely silent since nVidia released the GeForce 7950GX2 and made quad SLI possible. Now, though, there are signs that ATI is ready to fire a parting shot in the battle between current-generation video cards. A major leak today revealed not only the specifications of the X1950 XTX, but also early benchmarks that show the tremendous leap in performance the X1950 can deliver in CrossFire mode. In most of the tests, the X1950 was dramatically faster than quad SLI - in the case of Half-Life 2, almost twice as fast. Both the XTX and CrossFire editions will ship with a 650 MHz core and an effective 2 GHz GDDR4 memory clock. This is very good news for Core 2 Duo owners, as CrossFire is currently the only option for multi-card graphics with Intel's latest mainboards.
