IntroductionThe HD 2900 XT is a great card; don't let those haters tell you otherwise. At launch there was no denying that it lagged behind the competition, and sure AA and AF performance isn't the best but thanks to AMD keeping on top with driver releases the card continues to improve every month.Originally there was supposed to be an XT/XTX combination of the HD 2900 but for some reason it never really happened, instead there has been a new incarnation of the XT which not only comes with a jaw dropping 1GB of memory on it but also carries GDDR4, the latest graphics card memory to hit the market.As impressive as 1GB of GDDR4 sounds it's really only numbers, what we really need to know is does this extra memory actually effect our game experience in a positive way or are we just throwing more money down the drain.
