Sony PS3

Yep you heard right! With some software available courtesy of Sony, you'll not only be able to game to your hearts content, but partake in Stanford Universities Folding @ Home (F@H) project. The PS3 client will support some advanced visualisation features, particularly making use of the Cell processor and RSX graphics chip contained within. The latter will enable the PS3 to display folding progress in real time using HDR and ISO rendering.

As usual a good review kemp, it seems they will be in the competition range of the Nvidia 7600.



And pretty cheap too :)

Some very impressive in-game results there. Deffo a choice card for the budget caming build.

ATi still lacks in the midrange department. Both my old GTO and our new XFX 7600GT XXX beat that thing in 05 by at least 400 points. Regardless, a great review Kempez :).

Nice review Kempz. One quick question tho. The card as it stands is it aimed at the mainstream or people who would overclock their system and get such a card?

The reason I ask is that the testings done on a clocked system, is that indicative of the people who would get this? Just wondering as you did all the testing on a clocked system?

Could we see some benchies on a stock and non stock system (like the custom pc magazine) for those of us in phear of clocking?

I actually forgot I had my CPU clocked up during the tests. Regardless the C2D would play the games fast anyway. Unfortunately my test rig has been sold so I could not use that for the tests.

I am going to use the same PC for all my tests from now on so this was a base for future comparison

Great review Kemp, and it's certainly a nice little card for the budget conscious :)

Nice review!
That setup would be VGA-limited in all games anyway, even a stock Allendale can push a lower-midrange card to its limits.
The X1650pro will be a great alternative to Nvidia's solutions at its level. It has an amazing price/performance ratio: 66€ is even less than what the 7300GTs clocked at 500/1400 are selling for!
