Cool GeCube X1950 card

Third-party manufacturer GeCube has released a new videocard based on ATI's X1950 chipset. The new X1950XTX may only be an AGP 8x card with 256MB of DDR3 RAM, but thanks to an onboard X-Turbo fan, it should be capable of much greater performance. The fan dominates most of the card's surface, and uses thermal sensors to keep heat under constant control, even when overclocked. Whereas other XTX cards are normally clocked at 648MHz, this variant can reach at least 675MHz while still maintaining temperatures between 158 and 176F. Tweaking is done with ATI's own Overdrive control panel. The card is not available in the US just yet, but should soon be carried by Newegg and TigerDirect.
