When we had a look at the Palit Radeon X1950GT 512MB the other week, we noticed that at the higher resolutions, it would put up more of a fight against the higher clocked 256MB graphics cards, such as the Radeon X1950PRO and GeForce 7900GS.
With the new Sapphire Radeon X1950GT 256MB in hand, it was clear what we wanted to find out - does the extra memory really come in handy? We saw that the cut back to 320MB on the GeForce 8800GTS had quite the impact on performance and it often mentioned that 512MB can be handy on the right card as long as it had the GPU power to back it up.
As we are using the Sapphire Radeon X1950GT graphics card which we haven't looked at before, we will be going through and checking out its package while having a closer look at the card before we get stuck into the benchmarks.
Let's see exactly what Sapphire have done to the Radeon X1950GT and how it differs to what we saw in Palit's more expensive 512MB version.
