Powercolor X1900XT 512mb

Introduction and packaging

Introduction

Powercolor are one of ATI's major AIB partners. They have a reputation for producing no-nonsense quality bundles without a lot of the extra games that a lot of firms send with the graphics cards nowadays. This means that their cards are slightly cheaper and in my opinion: better value.

Today I will take a look at the Powercolor X1900XT. I have already reviewed the Sapphire X1900XTX here, along with an nvidia card roundup here. I will take a look at the Powercolor card and see how it compares to those top-end products.

Packaging

Powercolor have presented the card in attractive packaging that shows you part of the card on the front.

This gives you a clear idea of what you are getting. They have also added specs and information on the back of the card:

The actual packaging of the card was fairly minimal but it certainly does its job at protecting the card in transit:

The card arrived in great shape and I have no doubt that the packaging did its job.

Now onto the card itself..

Nah not depressed.

3 reasons:

1: nVidia's drivers are better

2: My GTX doesn't sound like its about to take off

3: I know I'll change my card when DX10 cards come out



Nice card tho

LOL good point. The X1K is quite loud, but christ ever stick your hand back there? Pushes at least 60 CFM at 100% if not more.

Yeah but the nvidea cooling fan has a great throughput with none of the sound. the cooler on the GTX is far superior IMO
