GeCube X1900GT - The Card

The X1900GT is a card we haven't looked at yet and GeCube are the first to come to the party with it here in our labs.

The front of the card uses what is pretty much a big chunk of aluminum with a small little fan on it. We have the heatsink to the right of the card to cool some of those little components that we never pay any attention to but manage to get warm.

The GeCube X1900GT comes clocked with a default core clock speed of 575MHz and 600MHz (or 1200MHz DDR).

Moving to the side of the card we can see a closer look at the red heatsink and we can also see that the cooler has copper fins inside it to help keep the core as cool as possible. Like all higher end cards from both nVidia and ATI, we can see the PCI Express 6-pin power connector in the top corner.

From one end to other we can see our 2 DVI plugs which are both Dual Link capable. What this means is that people with 30" LCD monitors can not only run one monitor on this card but two. Dual Link DVI is something that has only really picked up in the past 6 months thanks to the competitive pricing that has begun on the 30" LCD market. We also have our little S-Video like connector which lets us do all our TV Out functions be it via RCA, S-Video or Component.

Moving back to the front of the card we can see just how small the fan is. While we worried for a little due to the small fan (on what is considered quite a high-end card), during our testing we didn't run into any troubles at all in our heated lab (29c Heater on 24/7 thanks to cold Melbourne weather).

Turning the card over we have the bracket that holds the large heatsink in place and our normal array of stickers and screws. All the memory is located on the front of the card which is cooled by the heatsink already.
