When all is said and done, it isn't too difficult to see why the Radeon X1900XTX is considered one of the best graphics adapters currently to grace the market. Add to this the brand name of GeCube, a company that is going out of its way to make a mark for itself in the enthusiast community, and you have the makings of an excellent product that is sure to please... at least if you can afford the entry fee.
At the time of this review, these boards are going for roughly $500US with the GeCube brand going in the approximate middle of the pack at $515. Of course, this isn't too big a hit at this time because this is the most current technology available. The high price tag is generally expected in this situation.
As far as performance is concerned, you can't be anything but impressed. Whether you're in the market for more frames or just better gaming quality, this thing has it all. Even with AA/AF cranked up or using the latest HDR effects in the newer game titles, the performance and eye candy are amazing.
Though not covered in this piece (sorry, I don't have any native HDTV signals accessible), this board also supports HDTV. This can be very good for those making use of satellite television or digital cable. Just something else to make the package even sweeter.
Bottom line... If you're considering moving to the top of the power curve and have the cash to spend, then I can heartily recommend this graphics board. The performance is exceptional and the features are second to none. While there isn't a huge amount of overclocking headroom, you still have some extra speed you can pull from this card. Simply put, it just works!
