ATI have officially unveiled their latest RADEON graphics card today, the X1950 Pro. This is a mid-range solution based on ATI's all-new 80nm "RV570" core. It's priced quite aggressively at $199 and is the first card from ATI to incorporate their CrossFire technology directly onto the GPU, dismissing the need for proprietory CrossFire Edition graphics cards or external dongles.

SINCE LATE AUGUST, we've been first-person witnesses to the fall parade of video cards. Personally, I've reviewed so many video cards that I'm having trouble separating a GeForce from a Radeon, let alone a GT from a GS or a Pro from, er, an amateur.
Fortunately, the new product ATI is unveiling today brings with it good news in several forms: the Radeon X1950 Pro is a strong new contender at the value-oriented $199 price point, and it's based on a brand-new mid-range GPU. ATI hasn't had the best of luck with mid-range graphics processors, but it looks like that's about to change. What's more, this new graphics processor at long last incorporates CrossFire capability directly into the GPU. Gone are the external dongles and proprietary CrossFire Edition graphics cards, replaced by simple, SLI-like bridge connectors between the cards.
