Gigabyte GeForce FX 5950 Ultra - Embracing nVidia, again

It has been hard for us to get excited by an nVidia card for quite some time. However, both 5950 and 5700 based cards seem to be doing a good job, and competition between ATI and nVidia gives us more of a chance of picking up a card at a cheaper price with plenty of power to boot as they both battle it out for number one spot.


We have found the new N595U from Gigabyte to be a power house with a better optimised BIOS and a much better overclocking result. We managed a core speed of 630MHz DDR and a memory speed of 1.03GHz DDR without breaking a sweat - with some better cooling, who knows what can be achieved.


Overall the power and the features of this video card from Gigabyte are great, but the 5950 Ultra does carry a big price tag. If you have deep pockets, the N595U is the one for you.


- Pros




Highly overclockable


Great games and software bundle


- Cons
