I am simply using the ATI Catalyst Control Centre "Overdrive" facility to overclock this card on stock air...out of the box. No voltage tweaks or external overclocking facilities have been used at all. Please also bear in mind that the driver I am using is a beta driver, giving additional support for the card before an official release supports it.
Here's what I got just doing a "quick" overclock:
With a nice gain over the stock 3dMark06 score, this shows that with better driver support, and maybe some voltage tweaks, the X1950XTX will be a very good overclocker. I'm pretty sure some of the Xtreme overclockers among us will be tearing up the ORB with this card or even a pair in crossfire.
