Moving on to the more important side of things we have ourselves the new Radeon X1900XT which really looks identical to the X1800XT. While the card does differ to our reference X1800XT, the standard retail offerings seen from most companies have the same Ruby image on the heatsink.
Looks wise everything about the card is very similar to the X1800XT, the front of the card is taken up by the massive heatsink fan with a smaller heatsink located on the right to cool some of those extra components down.
The top right of the card shows our normal PCI Express connector like we find on all cards that need to utilize the extra connector, even below the connector the cards look identical in layout.
Turning the card over we can see that the two cards are almost identical to each other with only a few markings around the board being different.
Finally moving over to the side of the card where the connectors are we can see that they both look identical.
The two cards really share exactly the same layout as each other which tends to make you wonder why you would upgrade from a X1800XT to a X1900XT or XTX. The differences are all found under the heatsink fan though on that new chip labeled R580.
As we have mentioned there are going to be two versions of the X1900 available - the one we have here today the X1900XT and the bigger brother which Cameron looked at, the X1900XTX. The GeCube X1900XT comes with a core and memory speed of 625MHz and 1.45GHz. The higher end XTX comes with a core speed of 650MHz and a slightly higher memory speed of 1.55GHz.
